“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.”
