What’s the most breath taking moment you’ve had as a wildlife photographer?
Photographing 250 ,000 pairs of King Penguins in South Georgia’s Salisbury Plain. The sounds, and site was breath-taking as the wildlife was completely oblivious of ‘man’s’ presence.
What’s your favourite piece of Craghoppers gear and why?
The incredible AquaDry Jacket I received for Antarctica. It’s very, very warm, waterproof and breathable, which is perfect for long sessions shooting in bitterly cold conditions.
How did you get into photography?
I was a safari guide for more than 10 years at some of the most prestigious private game reserves in South Africa. Photography just came naturally to me, as I want to capture and share the incredible experiences I witness everyday with friends and family.
