"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, Getaway Magazine, Nature TTL, Tracks4Africa and more locally in the Limpopo-based publications of the Klaserie Chronicle and the Hoedspruit Explorer magazines
I love being creative and photography is a fantastic outlet for showcasing one's artistic sensibilities. However, I truly feel that with nature and wildlife - it should be more about what's in front of the camera and less about the person behind it. As much as I put my own creative stamp on my imagery, it's also important to me that my work truthfully and honestly reflects and the wildlife and scenery that was in front of me.

I run a company called RAW Photographic, where we host photographic safaris and workshops across southern and eastern Africa. These trips, whilst giving incredible experiences and photographic tuition 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.
If you're looking to experience the African wilderness in an authetnic and ethical, yet experiential and intimate way - please consider visiting out our website and checking out what we have to offer. I'd love to host you on safari and share my knowledge and expertise with you!
