Although I originally studied law at the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, a few years of practice as an attorney convinced me that law was not for me – too confrontational – so I bailed out and opted for photojournalism.
Then more study, this time a three-year Photography Diploma at Natal Technikon.
My interest in wildlife and wildlife photography has developed in tandem with travels to some of Africa’s great parks and nature reserves.
I am not a professional wildlife photographer; all my photographs have been taken while on safari with friends who have been kind enough to let me tag along.
That means I'm in a game drive vehicle with six to eight other people, not necessarily photographers, so I have to grab whatever images I can, usually with run-of-the mill equipment.
I am under no illusions about my photos - most don't make the grade as top class wildlife images. I do believe, however, that they can provide a great resource for artists needing reference photos of African animals taken in the wild, in their natural habitat.
