Danielle is a born and bred South African and has a deep-rooted love for Africa and the world’s wilder places and growing up, no opportunity was missed to explore the hidden treasures of South Africa and its’ neighbouring countries on vacations with her family. She completed her degree in Physiotherapy at the University of Pretoria but exchanged the city life for a life closer to the bush and settled in Nelspruit. After completing The New York Institute of Photography’s Professional Photography course, her passion grew into a career and she has since freelanced as a photographic guide in the Timbavati and Klaserie regions as well as in Botswana’s Chobe and Mashatu Game Reserves. She enjoys travelling and has explored various corners of the world of which Madagascar, Namibia, Sudan and Peru were photographically rewarding.
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity presented itself when she was appointed as one of Pangolin’s full-time photographic hosts in 2019 and she can now share in the joy of capturing the world’s most unique wildlife with other like-minded photographers.
