Travel features,

image commissions and

conservation Collaborations

Hi, and thank you for visiting my site. I am a freelance lodge photographer and travel photojournalist based in Cape Town. I aim to produce high-quality, travel-orientated visual and written content about Africa and its islands.

Wilderness spaces and authentic experiences energise and inspire me to create. I’m fortunate to work, often in an on-going capacity, with divine lodges and concessions that care about their people, conservation and their environmental impact. I want my work to spread awareness of their stories and support marketing efforts, to showcase their realities in an honest and appealing way, and ultimately to encourage potential guests to visit and experience it for themselves.

The resulting media can be used for websites, editorial publications, to create photo albums, for on-going social media updates and, ideally, hung as artworks.

My background

Born in Durban, I completed a BCOM in Marketing through UNISA and subsequently joined a commercial photographic company. I decided that travel was where I wanted to be involved, and luckily this decision coincided with a job opening at Getaway , South Africa’s oldest travel magazine. Over four years as the Photo Editor I photographed and wrote about off-the-grid campsites, pilgrimages, new adventures and upmarket lodges. Working there was challenging, formative, and a complete blessing.

I’m all about remote landscapes, camping, hiking and horse riding - especially over multi-day journeys.

Horse safaris, and the people behind them, have been very good to me. These fulfilling journeys will be a life-long pursuit.

You'll find more about the latter at Cross the Lands, my website dedicated purely to horse travel around the world. 


I’d love to hear from you and, bearing in mind I’m sometimes out of internet range, will get in touch as soon as I can.
