ONE FRAME CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING

When I was starting out in Photography, I did not seem to find any mentorship and believe me I REALLY contacted many Photographers. I always got the polite “no” or some just went quiet. This led me to immerse myself into deep research and practice. That meant a lot of trial and error. I kept reaching out to Photographers even out of my country and I wanted to know how they achieved what they had. One of the most common […]

Big Cat Behavior – The Take Down

When I started photographing wildlife about 3 years ago, I always thought of cheetahs as very shy cats. They fit the narrative, because I had watched many wildlife films showcasing them hunt, the methodology was the same, they stalked, got as close as possible and then made their lightning 30-second sprint to the unsuspecting prey, and it worked, with cheetahs having a 50% success rate. During my latest trip to Mara, my intention was to observe these cheetahs, but not […]

RARE MOMENTS

As Wildlife Photographers, we are always looking for something extra, that special moment that hasn’t been photographed before. We are always on the chase for good light and a spectacular subject to photograph. Often this combination is almost impossible to get. One time you will get the good light and your subject is asleep, or your subject is active, playing and stretching but the light source which is the sun too harsh and horrible. Getting the dynamic right gets very […]

BIG CATS

“Big Cats” is the informal term used to refer to the largest members of the Panthera Genus. I find cats extremely fascinating! I literally sit with them for hours to just watch and study their behavior. If it came down to it and I had to specialize in photographing only one species, this would be it. If you spend enough time with any animal, you begin to understand their struggles and what they do to survive. A lot of people think […]

PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARIS

What are Guided Photographic Safaris? Photographic Safaris are basically Safaris by experienced Wildlife Photographers. Its a service targeted for wildlife photographers, photography enthusiasts, and wildlife lovers. Photographic Safaris are here to change the way the you see and photograph wildlife. We don’t do the norm, which is pack a van to capacity, whizz through the park in full speed “looking for action”and when you do find something amazing, you only watch it from a mile away or for a few minutes […]

The Story of Lorain and her lost cub

The Leopard. (Panthera pardus) is one of the five BIG CATS. They are elusive, solitary and largely nocturnal. In the classical era a leopard was believed to be a hybrid of a lion and a panther, as is reflected in its name. The Leopard owes its huge hunting success to its well camouflaged fur, remarkable vision, exceptional hearing, good sense of smell, its opportunistic hunting behavior, broad diet, strength to move heavy carcasses into trees and its ability to adapt to various habitats to mention […]

In today’s journal, I would like to write about this wonderful family of four. The Matriach cheetah named Malaika – swahili for Angel. Daughter of another famous Cheetah Queen. Malaika is about eight years old and lives in the Maasai Mara with her three cubs (they were four but one left) She has raised many cubs to adulthood successfully and is an excellent hunter. Cheetahs generally are successful hunters. With accelerations of 0 to 60mph in 3 seconds half of […]
