Artists of the Savannah

Chapter – TO THE MOST ARTISTIC CAT I KNOW AND TO ALL VISUAL ARTISTS | 2021 Wild Stories Ep 5 | BIG CATS | This is for the most artistic cat I know and for every visual artist out there, but before we get there, a little digress, (Right at the beginning of the story, I know, I know!) I promise it will be worth it. I think we can all agree that modern technology has made it extremely easy for people […]

A BATTLE WITH MY SOUL & THE FAITHFUL MILDRED

Chapter – Riding MILDRED from Nairobi-Laikipia-Isiolo-Turkana-Chalbi Desert-Nyahururu-Bogoria-Naivasha and back | 2021 Wild Stories Ep 3 | UNTOLD STORIES Ep 1/2 | Lately, I have found myself in battle with the art creation side of my soul. I have been haunted by the number of stories that don’t see the light of day. Sometimes these stories are just ordinary stories of ordinary people living their lives. That might seem boring but those stories are unique to them and are as important as […]

SEDUCTION

| 2021 Wild Stories Ep 1 |  No, sadly this is not the “enticing into sexual activity” for fun kind of definition of the word 😊😊 It’s about knowledge in animal behavior. Today, it’s about one of the animals I love to document most in nature; the Lion. A Lion’s existence only begins when a strong nomad rises to the challenge of finding a mate. That is the birth of every Lion Pride. After the pride is formed, the survival of the pride is of […]

Spirit of Adventure

Everyone has something that fills their heart. That drives them. That fills that void that nothing else can fill. Its a bit different for creatives as everything we feel is extremely amplified. We love what we do and do everything with immeasurable passion. As time goes by, our wonderful world can get heavy, the city lights don’t seem to brighten our nights. We feel empty and start to crave for an escape.  Different people have different ways of dealing with […]

ONE FRAME CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING

Africa’s Photographer of the Year 2017 – 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 […]

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 […]
