I am in love with this world. Our deepest roots are in nature… we are linked with the rest of creation.
Once you have tasted the beauty of the wild, the sun, the rain, summer, winter – you will realise this.
There is something marvelous in nature that touches all of us, that brings balance to our lives.
You only have to spend time in the wild, hearing the deep call of the lion, or the jackals and hyenas calling, or feel the breeze against your skin to know this is true. I love being away from crowds and in wide open spaces enjoying these precious gifts. Unless we change our values soon, pictures are all we will have left of our magnificent wildlife and irreplaceable home. All we ever need is right in front of us. All we need to do is enjoy it and respect it.
We are surrounded by beauty that goes unnoticed all the time. It’s when you stop for a moment and look – really look that you see it. Photography allows you to capture this beauty and treasure it forever.
Photography is a passion. It’s consuming in a positive, joyful way.
It’s when I’m close to nature and outdoors that I feel my best. It’s truly food for the soul. I believe we all feel better after being close to water or mountains. We are drawn to it like a magnet. When we need to destress where do we turn to? Nature – the sea, the lakes, the mountains. Mother Nature refreshes us like nothing else can. It breaks my heart to see the destruction going on at the moment of our natural resources, our wildlife, our home. We need nature as much as she needs us.
I’m blessed to live in South Africa where the sun shines every day, the beaches and landscapes are stunning and the wildlife mesmerizing.
