Photographer & Journalist
I’m a professional photographer and author who regularly contributes to a range of premium travel, adventure and outdoor magazines, both in South Africa and abroad. As an internationally acclaimed photojournalist, I cover global extreme sporting events, shooting disciplines as diverse as rock climbing, trail running, slack-lining, adventure racing, downhill mountain biking, surfing, snowboarding and off-road expeditions.
I am also an accredited GETTY and former RED BULL photographer, and therefore fortunate enough to cover global extreme sports commission for respected outdoor brands and agencies.
Adventure travel is a huge passion, and Africa has featured big on my radar, with backpacking, mountaineering, rafting and kayaking trips to countries as diverse as Morocco, Malawi, Ghana, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Central African Republic, Botswana, Uganda, Seychelles, Egypt, Mauritius and Madagascar. International destinations include continental Europe and Scandinavia, Argentina, Bolivia, Borneo, Brazil, Vietnam, Cambodia, Australia, Iceland, USA, Mongolia, Russia and Greenland.
When you spend a lot of times in the great outdoors, you tend to become blasé about your ability to cope when things go wrong. It is quite natural to push your personal endurance envelope, but it is such a great feeling to know you have the #SpotGen3 as a back-up when you push things too far and accidentally anger those old-school outdoor gods.
