Based in the Greater Kruger of South Africa, working as Photography Manager for African Impact, I'm looking to introduce and showcase to other like minded photographers the beauty that had me fall in love with Africa twenty years ago.
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.
With African Impact I’m developing and running various projects ranging from teaching and introducing photography to international volunteers, guests and field guides whilst also hosting and leading various other photographic trips that aims to give any photographer the best opportunities and experiences possible. But all of this comes with an ethical and conservational underlining, which is the foundation of which everything has been built upon.
