2014 started with a splash in Kenya’s tropical Indian Ocean, but a month later, I was holding my breath in the ice-cold rivers deep within the Cedarberg Mountains.

Photographing the end of Kreef At 4:35 in the morning the faint glow of dawn backlit the flickering of a lighthouse beam and slowly Saldanha bay slipped further away, disappearing in the mist.

It was the beginning of a photography shoot aboard a little West Coast rock lobster fishing...

January 2013 2012 was an inspiring year for me, in part because I won a few major awards and saw my work exhibited for the first time: I won the Bourse UICN – Terre Sauvage and UICN Melvita Nature Image Awards 2012 and came 3 rd place in the Man and Nature category 1 st place in Art Wolfe’s International Conservation Photography Awards (ICPA) for my reportage on Cape Gannet rehabilitation I feel I am paddling towards the crest of the wave and 2013 will be a year for paddling even harder. I’m...
