About me

Thanks for stopping by

I see photography as the art of showing the beauty of life. Most of the scenes I show here are my efforts displaying the beauty of my country and what makes it great. I have concentrated a lot of my efforts on wild life, but in the past couple of years I've grown into studio work too.

Nature photography is an exciting field in a country where most wild animals live outside zoo's and can be photographed in their natural habitat. I love the hunt, getting the picture, but that will never be at the cost of the animal. I am always careful not to disturb the scene or upset the animals

Please feel free to comment on my pictures. Constructive advice is always welcome
