"Hi, my name's Sam and I'm a professional wildlife photographer looking to develop skills in others and share experiences in all things photography and wildlife!


... oh, and with gin!"   

I've been a professional wildlife photographer for over a decade, photographing the flora and fauna of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Eswatini and South Africa - a country I consider as a second home.

I spent four years living in the Limpopo province of South Africa amidst the wildlife and on the doorstep of the famous Kruger National Park, teaching international guests the specifics of wildlife photography and aiding conservation initiatives.

Over the years I've seen my photography and writing published across various platform through the likes of National Geographic, BBC Wildlife Magazine, Travel Africa, Wildcard Magazine, Africa Geographic and more locally in the Limpopo-based publications of the Klaserie Chronicle and the Hoedspruit Explorer magazines.

I run a company called RAW Photographic, where we host photographic safaris and workshops in southern and eastern Africa. These trips, whilst giving incredible experiences to our guests, also provide support to local conservation groups and assist in the development of up and coming photographers looking for experience in the field.

All of my photographs are for sale for both personal and commercial use and  I provide one-on-one online photo and portfolio critiques for anyone looking to for a bit of development.
