About the Author

Marlon duToit

Passion, enthusiasm and an unquenchable thirst to explore and introduce you to our natural world’s wildlife perfectly sums up my ambitions. I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. Through my African adventures I kept my photographic passion alive. Behind a camera aimed at a lion or a leopard is where I am most at home, my heart skipping a beat at the mere thought of it. My intention has never been solely for recognition but for the plight of what’s left of our natural recourses. Using my love and understanding of wildlife I am able to convey to the viewer more than an image or a fleeting moment. I aim to tell a story, to bring that moment alive to you and to capture your heart through it.

    Thanks for walking us through your process. I especially appreciate your sharing with us your philosophy of which qualities in a particular photo you feel enhances it for consideration as a sepia image. I’ve used sepia as an option for photos of historic architectural ruins, but not wildlife. Will give it a shot. Thanks again.
