I was born in South Africa, and raised to love the wild spaces of the continent from an early age. I grew up with a father who made wildlife films for a living, and (perhaps inevitably) I’ve spent most of my adult life trying to find ways to combine my love of photography and wilderness, with ways of conserving it.
I followed a scientific path at first, obtaining an MSc in Conservation Biology, before turning to the more practical aspects of conservation with Big Life Foundation in Kenya. I have now lived for 5 years in the Chyulu Hills, a literal stones throw from ol Donyo Lodge, and have focused my camera both on the incredible beauty of the region, as well as on the conservation work that is keeping it together.
I love this place and take huge joy in sharing it with others. I believe that there is no better way to do this than through a camera and Wild Studio. Photography slows everything down, an active meditation that focuses our attention on the things in front of us. Whether this is capturing the milky way at night, Kilimanjaro in the morning light, or an elephant taking a slow drink at the waterhole, the experience is as important as the image.
