After all the engagement we received from our first #BeInspiredBy post two weeks ago themed Big Cats, we are extremely excited for our second theme. This weeks theme is Monochrome.

How does it work:

  • Every second week we will select a different them which will change and range from destinations and different animals to a variety of different photography techniques.
  • You can enter your own images by going to the Wild Eye Facebook page – Click Here  – Every second Thursday the theme will be posted on our page. You can post your image in the comments section, please add a caption and use the hashtag #BeInspiredBy.
  • Each Of the Wild Eye Guides will submit an image for the theme and add their own caption on the image.
  • MOST IMPORTANT: Have fun!

It is really easy, fun and a great way for us as well as all of you to share your images with the rest of the Wild Eye community.

YOUR images:

Sabrina Piatti – Zebra kick in the Ngrongoro crater

Mandeep Mistry – our eyes are the doorway to your heart!
Rescued and raised by the DSWT, these little angels touch your heart the moment you see them up close. The Orphans’ Project of DSWT offers hope to threatened elephant populations of Kenya as they struggle against the threat of poaching and habitat loss.

Dhruti Mistry – Sea of stripes… the mega herd after successfully crossing the Mara.

Callum Evans – Sugarbird in monochrome

Nicky Aylmer – A lucky opportunity on a recent visit to Polentswa in Kgalagadi . Side lighting on the cape fox gives a nice moody image.

Angele Roublard – I love how texture is made more prominent in a black and white edit. I especially love this very relaxed black rhino. What a privilege it was to photograph it up close.

Jill Vogt – Hidden Away

Sallie Anthony – A lone zebra amongst the Wildebeest crossing the river in the dust . Great Migration 2015

Kerry Mills – Migration 2017, original image nearly trashed as I cut part of the lower jaw off, but I’d loved the intense detail – thanks to some editing help from Wild Eye’s Andrew Beck I have this amazing image

Joni Munsterteiger – Magical Mara Ellie! Masai Mara Private safari with Gerry- March 2018. Best trip ever!

Dee Roelofsz – A re-edit of an older favourite of mine, a magnificent male seen whilst on the Wild Eye Madikwe Bootcamp. I was inspired to try a new BW edit by Andrew’s Behind The Frame Episode 10

Karina Robin – one of my favourite b/w images, a young leopardess in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve

About the Author

Trevor McCall-Peat

Having Grown up in White River which then was a small town in the Lowveld, I have had an inner burning desire to pursue my passion and love for wildlife. From a young age I was guided by my family who shares the same passion for the natural world as I do. Frequently visiting wilderness areas from a young age instilled a deep craving to explore and learn more about the bush. Once I left school I began my journey to becoming a guide and following my dream. I have been a field guide for the past 9 years, starting out in the Western Cape and then returning to the lowveld where I spent my last 4 years spend at Londolozi Game Reserve where I gained invaluable experience and had the opportunity to learn about myself as an individual. Through my love for wildlife it has kick started my passion for photography and has allowed me to grow and pursue it as a career. Combining an array of different elements such as safaris, photography, being one with nature and sharing experiences with others is something I have really enjoyed doing and looking forward to continuing it on this new and exciting chapter.
