I've been a professional photographer for over a decade, starting off locally in England with wedding photography. My lifelong love for Africa (starting way back in 1999 with my first visit) eventually had me move out and take on the role of teaching and managing photography projects in the Greater Kruger region of South Africa.
With this comes the added responsibility of instilling a thoughtful, ethical and conservation based approach and mindset to how we work with the natural world. Great photography is not hard to come by, but meaningful photography is. My aim is to teach photographers the importance and impact their work can have in aiding the health and growth of our natural biosphere. How can an image make a difference? What stories can we tell? What awareness can we spread and how do we support the wildlife that we love so much? These are the questions to keep asking yourself as a photographer and when you do, you’re actively stepping into the realm of becoming a conservation photographer - something that the world desperately needs in all corners.
Since then, I've set up my own photographic company, RAW Photographic, where I now have total control over the experiences I wish to deliver to my fellow photographers and guests. For more information on how to join me or any of our photographic trips, click to the JOIN ME ON SAFARI for more information.
I've seen my images and writing published in National Geographic, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife Magazine, Travel Africa and more.
My core belief is that great photography is not hard to come by, but meaningful photography is, and my aim is to teach photographers the potential importance and impact their images can have in aiding and assisting the health and growth of our natural biosphere.
