Curious Giraffe | African Wildlife | Fine Art Canvas
I realised the potential to this image with the "S shape stream on the edge of the pan. I waited for hours for an exciting subject to complete my vision.
These giraffes I saw a few hours before and 30kms away.. they walked this distance to quench their thirst.
I surmised that they faced opposite directions... "protection".. each could see the opposite direction...as this is a prime ambush area for lions...who would lie in the grasses close by to kill animals as they drink...

Bull Elephants Trek | Framed Wall Art
One of the most memorable moments of my photographic career, I spent an afternoon photographing seven Bull Elephants. I have never witnessed a group of Bull Elephants spending so much time with each other.
There was two massive old bulls, and five shadow bulls, I first observed them 170kms and four days away..
I could not believe my luck finding them again.. I managed to capture some of my best elephant images ever.

March of the Bull Elephants I waited for these massive giants of Etosha to slowly walk towards me.
I was slightly nervous as I had never photograph these individuals before and was not quite sure how they would react to my close presence. As they approached, they were relaxed and calmed.. in turn, I relaxed and was calm.. we in a few moments the Bull Elephants had passed...
It was an unforgettable and exhilarating moment.

When you are alone and in the presence of a Kalahari black mane lion, a primeval fear takes a hold of you. Even though you tell yourself "you'r safe" you can not totally shake this feeling. It's there lodged in the back of your mind.

Tower of Giraffes Stop and Stare*
This is one my favorite monchrome fine art Giraffe prints. I sometimes struggle composition wise with giraffes. But on this particular day the Giraffes were wonderful models. Each Giraffe seem to have his or her own signature pose. A portrait photographer could not have wished for more. Needless to say I was so thankful. I had the easy job of clicking the shutter.
This is one of my best selling black & white fine art wildlife prints and thats all down to this wonderful giraffe family. Thank you..

Marataba wildlife reserve has probably one of the most beautiful settings to photograph African wildlife. The Marataba mountains act as a wonderful backdrop for your “animals in the landscape” photos. These two Bull Elephants drank side by side and now again they would put their trunks inside each other's mouth...a wonderfully serene and caring moment shared by our biggest land mammals on the planet.

Pictures Of African Elephants | Wildlife Print
This is one of my favorite wildlife prints of elephants. I love elephants, I think most people do. So I was a bit frustrated when after a week I could not find this herd. It was on my last day of safari when I came upon them. I was annoyed as I could see from a distance they were just leaving a waterhole. But it turned out to be a very serendipitous moment as they turned and walked in my direction, The waterhole was at higher vantage point than I was. Which meant I could bet this unique point of view. *
Elephant Tusker | Photo Safari | Large Canvas Print
As a wildlife photographer there is nothing more satisfying than getting the acceptance of these giant gentle creatures. This Bull Elephant allowed me close enough to capture this amazing print. Photographing my subject with a wide lens I was able to include some background giving a sense of place
Elephants Foot | Original Art | Wildlife Photo
Mapungubwe game reserve. 6am ,Its very cold. The day has not started well.I am sitting at a hide hoping to get images of Mapungubwes elusive wildlife. I have forgottenmy flask of coffee and then a sudden realization that I also forgotten my short lens. To say I was a little irritated would be an understatement.
Soon a big herd of elephants arrive within 20 meters of the hide. At my disposal isa 600mm telephoto lens. With this dilemma of too much lens .I decided to concentrate on getting close up shots of the elephants, the tusk, the eye, tail ,and this "Big foot".
Elephant Family | Framed Wildlife Art Prints |
There is something reaffirming when on observing the behaviour of Elephants. These Elephants are protecting their young against a perceived threat. It is so easy to attach human emotions to their behaviour but to be honest we as a race could probably be learn and benefit from the tolerance and respect that show to each other.
Lioness | African Wildlife | Wall Art
A stare from a lion will startle you. No matter how many times I have photographed these predators. The stare connects with something primaeval within and a respectful fear takes over.
This young lioness even though a few years from her prime, already is a powerful killing machine. She stands in front of her latest victim a zebra, even though she is full and sated her predatory instincts are always alert.
Lion Pics | Best Wildlife Photo | Canvas Art
Salvadora is the name I have given this magnificent Lion, His scared face shows the battles and turmoil in the life of a pride male lion has to keep his family and territory safe from rivals.
As a wildlife photographer, there is nothing more rewarding than to be in the presence of such wild animal. Every time I photograph lions I am in awe of their size and the sense of foreboding I feel. A true predator, no wonder lions are part of the big five.
Bonds of Love | Lions | African Wildlife Prints
Bonding is important to the success of a lion pride. The males may not be around all of the time, having to mark their territory boundaries which are time-consuming. But when they do return the pride, the cubs and females will all take time to go over to the males and initiate the bonding ritual.

Pictures of African Lion | Best Wildlife Photos
An Etosha Black-maned Lion walks towards a waterhole. I use a long lens to compose this wildlife photo as the lion walks towards me. I can't help but notice the disheveled look to his mane and his scared face. He is in his prime and he rules this territory.
Kalahari lions are the biggest of lions in Africa. Every time when they get close to me and I take the camera from eye to look at these big cats I am in awe of there size and power they exude.
Bonds of Love | Lion Brothers | Fine Art Print
Coalitions are normal between Lion males, two are stronger than one, which means that it will be difficult for single males to fend off or take over from a pair of impressive Kalahari black-maned lions.
Boning between the males is important, the alpha will rarely if ever initiate the bonding, this will be done by the sub-alpha male, who will be always second in line to food and females
Tawny Lion Photo | African Big Cats | Canvas Print
Tawny Lions colouring is slightly more yellow/tawny than other Southeast African lions. This could be due to the environs they live in, adapting to the heat and vegetation. The Kalahari Lions have darker manes and tend to be heavier in weight.
This African safari photo was taken in a private SouthAfrican game reserve. This Tawny lion had noticed some white lions passing through his territories. H immediately set after the pride of lions. He caught up with the lions and taught them a lesson and chased them off. One tough Tawny Lion against 4 white lions. This black and white lion photograph will make a wonderful wildlife print for your wall space at home.
Father & Son | Lions | African Wildlife Prints
Capturing an unique moment that shows the bond and relationship between lion and son is not always easy.. As the male tends to spend a lot of time away from the pride marking his territory.. Then when he does join his pride.. He sleeps most of the time a small distance away.. It was lovely to see the interaction when the young male cub approached his dad and had a small bonding session.. Then the cub left and stood confidently in front of his father.. Allowing me to capture a beautiful an unique portrait of ”Father and Son”
