As a young boy in primary school, my father once allowed me to photograph with his “proper camera”. I still vividly remember that feeling of awe capturing my first special moment in nature. A feeling that was all-consuming and special in every way.
And so started an entire way of life for me, where almost everything thereafter revolved around wildlife photography. It was a natural progression to start up my own photographic safari company, TuskPhoto. Which after 15 years of existence still gets me leading photographic safaris around the globe.
Today I still plan almost everything I do in life around the next photography challenge I have in mind. Capturing the beauty of nature is what resonates with me in every fibre of my being. I still get excited and thrilled to be in the wilderness in some wild and free remote corner of our planet – it’s what makes me feel alive.
