I was born in May 1977 in Nairobi, Kenya. I am a 3rd generation Kenyan with roots in this great nation since 1892. The allure of being in the wild & studying African Wildlife has always and constantly lurked behind my mind. Later I pursued an education in Tourism as a way to get closer to my passion by becoming a Safari & Travel Consultant & Professional Safari Guide.
I am an affiliate of KPSGA (Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association) currently at Silver Level & preparing for my Gold level this year. I am also a member of FGASA (Field Guides Association of South Africa)
Since childhood, I have had a deep love for all flora & fauna on Earth & a lust for travel to all the Wild Places that are home to these marvelous creatures. My fascination for nature has allowed me to travel to many Wild Places around the World. I have also volunteered at various wildlife based organizations & participated in many wildlife photographic exhibitions being a very keen nature photographer. I adore all the diversity of flora & fauna of the World. I feel closer to the Creator when I am with nature & have a deep sense for conserving these natural treasures that are fast disappearing from our planet at an alarming rate. I feel that I have a unique spiritual connection with all Wild things on Mother Earth. We are all linked in nature & once a link is broken it affects all of us in one way or the other!
I have always been a keen photographer since childhood but got a little serious when I turned 18 & my Grand Father gave me his Pentax SLR camera. He taught me the basics when analogue was the system; it was also expensive & left little room for experiments & creativity.
I was later introduced to the digital world & bought my first DSLR in 2007. I still miss analogue especially colour slide film. Currently I am using Nikon equipment & consider myself an amateur photographer aiming to turn pro in the near future.
Wildernesses around the World are constantly facing challenges created by men’s ever-growing need for more resources & this year the human population will hit the 8 Billion mark! I am hoping that my images can be used as a tool on the conservation front.
I want my images to create awareness about “Wild Places” & “Wildlife” whilst also giving back. Please click on the “Giving Back” tab to see how you can do your part in conservation. Purchasing a print with also directly contribute to Conservation Work Groups that I work with closely.
This website is dedicated to everything WILD out there!
Thank you for visiting my site & hope you will enjoy the images as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
KARIBU! (Welcome in Kiswahili)
