I specialise in creating high-quality, travel-orientated photographic and written content from within Africa and its islands, and strive to work with lodges and operations that have a strong environmental and social conscience. 

Over four years as the Photo Editor at South Africa's oldest travel magazine, Getaway, I photographed and wrote about off-the-grid campsites, pilgrimages, new adventures and upmarket lodges. In addition, I formed part of the Getaway Gallery judging panel and featured as a guest photo judge for the 2017 National Geographic Traveller UK competition.  I have extensive experience working under pressured situations and delivering results. Since going freelance I've had the wonderful benefit of working with new, exciting organisations and magazines. 

Having an editorial background has greatly benefitted my photographic style, and my work has been used across websites, social media and high-end travel and lifestyle magazines. Whenever I am photographing, I aim to fulfil those three categories to give you the maximum marketing benefit going forward. I want my images to be versatile and to tell your story, attracting new clients and bringing modern, clean and atmospheric aesthetics to your marketing presence.

Then there's one of my greatest joys: adventure travel through wilderness areas - the more obscure the better. This includes both multi-day hiking, 4x4 trips and horse riding. You'll find more about the latter at Cross the Lands, my website dedicated purely to horse travel around the world.
