Can you "spot" the spotted one?
It's amazing how well leopards camouflage anywhere - in bushes, grass or on rocks! Full story behind this photo/sighting on my blog:

"Lonely Karoo Tree" - AFRICAN TUESDAY

I love photographing the Milky Way, and even more so when I'm in places with close to zero light pollution (like in the Karoo desert, where this image was taken).

Make sure you also post your photos taken in Africa for the #AfricanTuesday theme! Use #AFRICANature as well for dialy African nature photos.

"Ethereal Impala"
Impala
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

So often we as wildlife photographers get caught up in the search for specific species or blistering action, that we forget to focus on the more transcendent qualities of what makes for a good photo - such as pristine light and ethereal beauty.

This scene was captured in the magical woodlands of Mana Pools in Zimbabwe. I am hosting another +Wild Eye photographic safari there from 19-24 July. If you want to join me, get in touch! More details here: http://bit.ly/WildEyeManaPools

Patience is a virtue for a wildlife photographer - read about how this photo took me 7 years to take on my blog!

This leopard photo was 7 years in the making...
No jokes.
Read the whole story on my blog!

7 years and 9 safaris to the Kalahari to obtain my first Kalahari leopard photo...

I view this photo as somewhat metaphoric and prophetic, given what's happening to elephants in Africa...

"Into the Storm"
African Bush Elephants
Mara Triangle, Maasai Mara, Kenya

There are many unwritten/unspoken photographic "rules" to be found at your local photography club meeting or on most online forums for photographic presentation. One of them is to make sure you capture the subject's face - in wildlife photography this is called "avoiding the bum shot".

In this case - the bum shot is what makes it. Elephants globally are marching into a storm - poaching and demand for ivory has reached critical levels...we cannot be assured that our kids will be able to see living elephants at the rate things are going now...something needs to change. That's what I love about the power of wildlife photography - it can be metaphoric and prophetic in what it evokes in the viewer.

This photo is part of my limited edition print series called "Atmospheric Elephants"...more info here:

African Bush Elephants
Mara Triangle, Maasai Mara, Kenya

There are many unwritten/unspoken photographic "rules" to be found at your local photography club meeting or on most online forums for photographic presentation. One of them is to make sure you capture the subject's face - in wildlife photography this is called "avoiding the bum shot".

In this case - the bum shot is what makes it. Elephants globally are marching into a storm - poaching and demand for ivory has reached critical levels...we cannot be assured that our kids will be able to see living elephants at the rate things are going now...something needs to change. That's what I love about the power of wildlife photography - it can be metaphoric and prophetic in what it evokes in the viewer.

The Wild Eye Wildlife Photography Seminar
Can you imagine 5 days on safari with the entire +Wild Eye team?
Can you imagine game drives twice daily with the awesome crew from +Sabi Sabi Reserve in the Sabi Sand?
Can you imagine receiving one-on-one guidance and inspiring lectures from the team during the days and in the evenings when not in the field?

Then you would do well to check out the Wild Eye Wildlife Photography Seminar, now in its second year, being held this April. Details here:
http://bit.ly/WESeminar

The Wild Eye team can, of course, arrange additional safari/travel itineraries for you if you travel from afar, so it doesn't have to be just a 5 day trip if you come from abroad...

Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Kalahari Desert, South Africa

Hello folks! It's an OPEN THEME for African Tuesday today, so anything goes...

I took this photo with my iPhone early one morning on our recent family safari to the Kalahari. The giraffe was feeding on the leaves of a camelthorn acacia tree.

Join me in Mana Pools!
This +Wild Eye Photographic Safari is the trip of a lifetime...
In this magical place you will get to spend time on foot with elephants, lions, wild dogs (hopefully) and many other iconic African species. The light is truly inspirational and the beauty of the scenes will leave you breathless - it's unlike any other spot in Africa.

I am hosting a safari from 19-24 July 2016. All the details can be found here - or simply ask me your questions in the comments:
