 "Wildlife Photographic Artist"  

 

 Becoming a Wildlife Photographer was more by accident than design. I was a passionate photographer whose hobby grew into a vocation. 

Relocating to Africa and my love for African wildlife and landscape meant it was a natural progression to specialise in african wildlife photography. 

Not so long ago. I was having a conversation with a field guide who loves his photography. We spoke about my choice of camera the Fujifilm XT-2 and its merits. 

He then said something that struck a cord and got me thinking ..

 
 
You are not a real wildlife photographer, your photographs are fine art photography
— anom field guide
 

Now I had always considered myself to be a photographer who specializes in black and white wildlife photography. To be honest I photograph whatever tugs at my heart strings!

I have been thinking for this for awhile. I am not one for labels or trying to put people or their art in to neat little boxes. But there is some merit to his statement. I have to admit I am not your typical wildlife photographer and I guess subconsciously I have never wanted to be. 

"I am a dreamer, a romantic, an eternal optimist and a passionated photographer. I create beautiful wildlife art to print on fine art paper. I would like those who view my wildlife framed prints to fall hopelessly in love with them, as I did it creating them"

I think my artist statement says it best...

Photography has allowed me to view the world in a unique way. The world has become a canvas of colour, shapes, lines, form and texture.
Hidden deep within us all is a layer of creativity. The medium of photography has allowed me to discover mine.
The digital darkroom has given me the tools to express my creativity. At times I will enhance an image to express my vision of a subject or a scene.
My wish is to transport the viewer, inspire and to ignite a passion for all life and environs on our wonderful planet.

What am I? I have never been too concerned with existentialism. I discussed this topic with some close friends, one who is an amazing artist replied, 

"You are a Wildlife Photographic Artist"

 

I guess as labels go, thats probably the best to describe who I am.. But it is not important to me what i am called/labeled, what is important to me, is to create
