Just back from an incredible two-week photo safari to the Kruger & Kalahari. We were spoilt with what we saw and more importantly, all the guests came back with some great images and feedback. Get in touch if you're interested in joining in 2019!
I'm pleased to announce that I've partnered with London based photography company: Photofox. As a team of photographers, we are all really passionate about teaching and promoting ethical wildlife photography. Molly Ferrill - National Geographic Explorer (Sigma sponsored), Alex Laberge - London Photographic (Nikon & Adobe sponsored) and Rafael Salvador help make up the talented team who I'll be running workshops with all over the world.
The Photofox mission is to improve your photographic skills and to pass on our enthusiasm and respect for the natural world and animal welfare.
Africa Geographic Magazine (Issue 139): Born Free - 50 Years On:
In 1966, there were approximately 200,000 lions in Africa. Now, there may be as few as 20,000, and in Kenya there are only around 2,000. The Born Free Foundation, alongside the Kenyan Wildlife Service (KWS) are relentlessly addressing this problem and driving forward conversation initiatives.
This article features some of the portfolio I created whilst collaborating with Born Free in Meru National Park, Kenya.
Licensing agreement with UK publishing company: U Studio.
U Studio publishes greetings cards and giftware that are sold in major high street stores and galleries such as the Tate, as well as hundreds of independent shops all over the UK, as well as distributing to the US and EU.
As part of their '1000 Words photography range', my image 'Head Shot' was selected and is now available to purchase online and in various stores.
Over the last two decades, Africa has lost over 40% of its lions and today as few as 20,000 animals remain. Kenya is one of only a handful of countries to have 2,000 wild lions or more, of which Meru National Park it is believed currently have between 40-50. The collaborative work of Born Free and the KWS (Kenyan Wildlife Service) remains invaluable in helping reverse the lion’s decline.
Working alongside the Born Free team, I spent five weeks tracking down and photographing the four main lion prides in the park, contributing towards research for Project Lion Rover. Alongside this, I created a general portfolio of the park to highlight the diversity of wildlife on offer, and showcase the work done to reverse the effects of the intensive poaching during the 1980's/1990's.
