Behind the shot: Golden Hour

We had just returned to our camp on the banks of the Zambezi River. We had not had a very productive afternoon photographically, and decided to head back for drinks as the sun set over the escarpment.

Just as we turned off the main road and into camp I spotted a single waterbuck backed by the most surreal scene. In an instant i had my guests off of the vehicle and into a position to capture the scene unfolding infront of us.

It was not a lion, leopard or elephant standing on its back legs, but the light was like nothing I had encountered before!
Soon a hard of impala joined the lone young waterbuck, and some baboons ambled by as they moved towards their evening roosting site.

It was magic, pure Mana magic!

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.
