Country: South Africa 

My African dream can be captured as the magnificent beauty and behaviour of the wildlife, the African sun tingling on my skin and a camera ready to capture the unique moments which last a lifetime. 
I absolutely love what I do but am not your run-of-the-mill photographer.  My passion for nature and wildlife photography stems from my natural love for Africa and all of her breathtaking beauty.
Since birth I was taught to care and respect animals and nature.
Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, I see the broader African continent as my home and have an insatiable desire to travel and explore the African continent.
I fell in love with photography 10 years ago and I have never   looked back since. 
I am a proud member of the Photographic Society of South Africa.
Through my photography I share the wonder and awe that I feel when I am in Africa’s wild and mysterious places.
I draw inspiration from being surrounded by nature. The tranquility and the vastness of the true wilderness makes me want to capture the split-second moments to the best of my ability.
I come alive from  behind the lens of a camera when I see the world from a different perspective through my camera.
