My love of black and white photography is only surpassed by my love of African wildlife, in particular, elephants. A decade ago on my first wildlife safari in Uganda. We happened upon a herd of elephants, my first encounter with these magnificent beasts was one a frightening one. Unfortunately, the past had not been kind to the elephants living in this reserve. They had been hunted for their ivory. Even though hunting no longer takes place, elephants do not forget or forgive easily. Every time we drove close to the elephants, they would charge. I was a novice wildlife photographer at the time, and this encounter made me very wary of elephants.

Ten years later and after many safari trips and tens of thousands of photographs. I have fallen in love with African elephants. I have spent countless hours in their presence. Have witnessed the most unusual behaviors and interactions. Elephants are very intelligent animals and can feel and pick up on emotions. If you are calm and peaceful, they too will mirror those emotions.

Understanding elephant behavior has allowed me the privilege of photographing unique moments that few people will ever witness. As a fine-art wildlife photographer, my mission is to share beautiful black and white prints of African wildlife. Hopefully, to inspire and ignite a passion for all wildlife on our beautiful planet.
