I am a nature photographer and writer focused on the African continent and the developing world.
I grew up on a densely forested and snake infested peninsula in Hong Kong. Back then it was a jungle area surrounding a beautifully sheltered bay complete with a tiny fishing village, mudflats, mangroves, and mountains. As all small boys should, I spent my days bathed in mud, tramping through the jungle with my dog, or sailing to the islands off the coast in my little dinghy.
In common with many other children in the era of Jacques Cousteau, my aim was to become a marine biologist (or yacht designer). Sadly neither came true! However, my love of exploration, the ocean and nature has never left me.
In these digital days, I combine my love of nature, photography and exploration. I spend most of my free time travelling to dusty corners of Southern Africa in my Landrover, Basil, mainly just to see what’s there.
My aim in photography is to depict the environment with a conservationists’ slant. For as Jacques Cousteau said, “People protect what they love” and I want the world to fall in love with African nature, just as I have done.
If you are interested in African travel, photo ethics or photography, in general, please drop me a line – I’d love to see your images and hear your story too!
