Tender Hwange Moment

I distinctively remember this afternoon with the elephants at a waterhole in Hwange National Park.

We had spent more than two hours there, and elephant just kept pouring out from the adjacent woodland. I don’t think I have ever seen a concentration of these large grey herbivores the size of this. My guest and I were sitting close to the waters edge, and were completely surrounded by elephants!

Off to the side stood a mother and calf, completely at ease and relaxed. They had already quenched their thirst, played in the mud and socialized.

The scene was just so beautiful and filled with peace!

When the little calf reached out towards his mother I tripped my shutter and captured the moment forever.

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.
