Passionate about Africa; her energy, life, spirit and career revolve around the continent and its wildlife. Shirli cut her teeth in the world of advertising after art-school, realizing her forte was in the raw design field, added to this, her love for wildlife and travel she originated her own design company called JADEWORKS, which has made a name for itself in the safari and tourism industry.

Photography was a natural evolution, and the more she experimented the more she was captivated by the medium - the collaboration of design, travel and vision was initiated through the name of AFRICAALIVE.

 

She has traveled extensively in Africa and recently co-authored a photographic coffee table book called “Africa’s Ultimate Safaris”, in addition to becoming a co-owner and founder of THE WILDSIDE SAFARI COMPANY, an exciting new travel venture.

 

“I love traveling and specifically spending time in wild regions. This gives me the opportunity to make a living while doing something I love, what more could I ask for? With the onset of technology I have found that I am able to do work for clients as far as Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Namibia, Botswana and the distinct venues on our doorstep. Nothing gives me more pleasure than hopping on a plane for a location shoot with my gear.”
