I recently had the pleasure of photographing the largest wild population of chimpanzees left in the world. The Mahale Mountains in Tanzania are as remote a safari destination as one gets and it is in fact not far from the very place where Stanley found Livingstone and uttered those famous words "Dr Livingstone I presume?". Mahale is one of the wildest, most enchanting places I have yet to experience in Africa and chimps are fascinating creatures. Not only are they wild, wonderful apes but they display fascinating behaviour and they are now by far my favourite primates to spend time with. Heck, I prefer them to people and I think I will call this image "The Thinker"! 

A special thanks to Nikon South Africa for letting me be the first person to try out the new Nikon Df camera. I took it because it is small and light but handles lowlight well. Boy, did it perform for me :-)more »

A night to remember:
Last night was really an incredible night! Sir David Attenborough read the names of the winning photographers and to hear his voice and to shake his hand was just awesome. Princess Kate gave out awards and the MC was the legendary photographer Frans Lanting. Two of my images were highly commended in the two largest categories, birds and mammals Four other South Africans placed in the top 100 including young Skye Meaker who took his winning shot on safari with me in the Mara last year and placed in the 11-14 year age category. Well done Skye! Check out other winners here: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/wpy/gallery/2014/adult.html

The African bush is a funny place: I have been living in it or near to it for 18 years and yet there have been (until recently) two inhabitants that I have never ever seen. That was until recently! My avian nemesis for like ever has been the Pel's Fishing Owl. I finally tracked it down in the Okavango Delta and the wait was worth it because not only did I see it eating a fish but the super moon was setting behind a cloud of smoke (from bush fires) in the background.

Today is a bitter sweet day for me. I am packing for a 20 day safari to Kenya which we booked last year. Our goal was to photograph one of the biggest tusker bulls left in Africa. We had booked a plane and the services of Richard Moller from the Tsavo Trust to help us find him. Sadly the poachers found Satao before we could. We are still going up and it is my hope that we can find another big tusker to photograph? The only solace is that Satao's genes live on and maybe future generations will see his tusks again...

I am just back after a sublime 10 day safari back in my old nick of the woods. This time I took a group of friends and shared with them the wonderful wilderness that is the South Rift Valley of Kenya. We hung out with the Maasai, explored remote wildernesses and tracked down the lions that appear on the cover of my book. I am happy to report that wild Africa still exists!

Busy with an article on the evolution of photography and I have had to submit my earlier work as well as my latest work. I think the journalist has summed it up pretty well for me: 

'Here is a picture from earlier in his career when he used bright natural light and fast shutter speeds to document his subjects. Greg's work evolved into what it is today whereby he uses slow shutter speeds and low light levels to create dramatic mood-filled images that convey a sense of movement and soul...

Snippet from my next book:

'Photography has probably never been more popular that it is currently and as a result there exists a plethora of articles and information on the subject. An unfortunate byproduct of this is that there now exists a great amount of white noise filled not only with jargon phrases but differing opinions too..'

I recently had the pleasure of photographing the largest wild population of chimpanzees left in the world. The Mahale Mountains in Tanzania are as remote a safari destination as one gets and it is in fact not far from the very place where Stanley found Livingstone and uttered those famous words "Dr Livingstone I presume?". Mahale is one of the wildest, most enchanting places I have yet to experience in Africa and chimps are fascinating creatures. Not only are they wild, wonderful apes but they display fascinating behaviour and they are now by far my favourite primates to spend time with. Heck, I prefer them to people and I think I will call this image "The Thinker"! 

A special thanks to Nikon South Africa for letting me be the first person to try out the new Nikon Df camera. I took it because it is small and light but handles lowlight well. Boy, did it perform for me :-)more »
