My fondest moments from when I was younger were visiting National Parks in Zimbabwe and South Africa with my family, and it is through these trips that I gained my love and passion for Africa and her wilderness areas.
Photography, film and story telling have been ingrained in me since early childhood since holidays with my mom used to make me write travel blogs when I was a young boy and one of them mentions how many black rhinos I saw on a children’s game drive at Hwange National Park.
Fast forward to buying my first camera whilst serving on operations with the British Army in 1999 my future was set. Following my time in the army I gained my honours in photography, new media and journalism in London and then moved back to Africa.
Over the past 10 years I have photographed studio lit corporate portfolios and adventure to the frontlines of conservation in war ravaged countries. My camera has taken me to all corners of the globe and I pride myself in being able to get into and out of areas safely which would daunt most other photographers and film makers.
I also run photographic workshops in the UK, Zimbabwe and soon will be embarking on some exciting new contracts, so watch this space. A percentage helping me provide equipment and workshops to communities who live in or adjacent to conservation areas involved in conservation.

Imagine my surprise when I saw first a human hand and then a head peer with panic around the wall! Oh my God someone is wedged in there with those two terrifying creatures! I dashed around and into the kitchen to see him attempting to clamber over the stove which has now been ripped away from it’s place in the wall. Helping him clamber over and avoid those massive teeth – it was truly a wonder that he hadn’t been sliced to shreds – I actually managed to ask him what the heck he was doing in the kitchen.
I have rewritten this piece so many times, but how do you make an anti poaching operation sound interesting and full of action? So I decided I am just going to tell it like it is. I hope that I can put across the dangers, boredom and thrill which an anti poaching...
