Wildlife Ranching Magazine, Spring 2012

Rietvlei Nature Reserve, located just on the outskirts of Pretoria, can be full of surprises. Great photos of various Highveld bird and mammal species can be captured there….just like this cover image of a herd of plains zebra sharing a private joke! (actually making the Flehman grimace).

Wildlife Ranching Magazine, Summer 2012

This cover image of a female leopard snarling at a spotted hyena was taken at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve, South Africa. The leopard mom and her cub had an impala kill cached in a Marula tree and didn’t appreciate the hyena getting too close to their priced dinner.

Africa Geographic Magazine photo feature “Kalahari Dreaming”

I had a great experience at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve when the family of meerkats we were filming helped us to find this usually unseen scaly creature…a Ground pangolin. My image of the pangolin and its amazingly long tongue was featured in the August 2013 issue of the Africa Geographic magazine.

Africa Geographic Magazine photo feature “Badger in Charge”

Just seeing a Honey badger operating in the wild is always a special sighting, but getting time to spend with one in the Kalahari was an awesome experience. My “Badger in charge” photo feature was published in the November 2013 Africa Geographic magazine.

Cameraman on “Hippo Gangs”, wildlife documentary film, Animal Planet

I filmed the largest concentration of hippos in Africa in the Luangwa Valley, Zambia. “It’s paradise during the wet season with plenty to eat and lots of space, but when the dry season arrives paradise turns to mud and cracked earth…it’s either move to another part of the river, or die”

Cameraman on “Buffalo Gangs”, wildlife documentary, Animal Planet

Cape buffalo looks like cattle, but don’t let looks deceive you; they are actually the most dangerous of the Big 5. I filmed the buffalo action on a Sony F55 camera in 4K and high-speed. “These placid bovines want to be left alone. To graze in safety. To celebrate new life. And live their lives in peace. But there is no peace. They are hunted and killed by lions. Always lions”

Cameraman on “Brothers in Blood: the lions of Sabi Sand”, Discovery Channel

This documentary tells the story of an incredible journey of Africa’s most notorious pride – a deadly group of six male lions called the Mapogo’s.

Rangers and biologists were astounded by the pride’s relentless hunger for domination, as they showed no fear in massacring other lions, and their cubs, in order to expand their territory. Over just one year, these six lions killed over eighty other lions, and conquered an incredible amount of land.

Their story is one of shocking violence, deception, and thirst for power – and reveals a surprisingly sophisticated side to the politics of lion behaviour.

Nominated for best animal behavior program at the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.
