Photographs of Southern Africa and Abroad

I am a professional landscape photographer from South Africa with a passion for capturing compelling images of nature. My early days in photography were spent shooting the amazing scenery of Cape Town and it's surrounding landscapes, but I've travelled and photographed most of Southern Africa over the past decade. I'm very fortunate to be based so close to one of the world's most iconic landscapes and after more than 200 days in the desert, I'm starting to feel more at home in Namibia. 

Southern Africa has vast geographical diversity and photographic potential. From the towering red dunes of the Namib, seaside forests of the Wild Coast, to the 1000m Tugela falls plummeting over the Drakensberg; there is no shortage of beautiful views. There are also many amazing landscapes on other continents and I try to visit a new place every year. Click on the interactive 'The World' map to explore Patagonia, Iceland, Tuscany and the Seychelles.

Photoshop enthusiasts may beg to differ, but the soaring demand for these products over the past few years proves otherwise. You can, to a great extent, get away with not using filters, but simply ask yourself this; do you prefer spending

The organization is called Adorabull Bull Terrier Rescue, situated South of Johannesburg. While on a photography trip in Tuscany this year, our beloved Bully passed away from a bee attack. In
