The first time I held a camera was in the mid 1980’s. During a family trip to France my father gave me a Rollei camera and a Seconic light-meter and during that vacation he taught me the basics of photography. Ever since I’ve been fascinated with photography. In 1997 I went on a trip to South Africa and I fell in love with the country and its wildlife. Since then I’ve made close to thirty trips to Southern Africa and have visited most of the major wildlife reserves in South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. Wildlife photography is the main reason for me to return to Africa again and again. There’s something magical about photographing wildlife in its natural environment.
My favourite places to go for wildlife photography are the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa, Moremi, Chobe and the Okavango Delta in Botswana and Etosha National Park in Namibia.
