Created exclusively in Kenya, over a couple of years, 'Nomads' depicts some of Africa's most iconic species in their natural environment.
Each image is taken by hand, without the use of remotes, often taking me to within just a few feet of the subjects.
While some were the result of dozens if not hundreds of attempts, others were instinctive ‘spur of the moment’ creations.
'Michael' for instance, was the culmination of five days spent following the same elephant, waiting for three vital elements to come together; a clear view of Mt. Kilimanjaro, strong cloud formations and a front on view of one of Africa’s future icons.
'Storm', however, was more of a case of right place right time, as a zebra crossed the horizon under a storm. That said I had been on safari in the Mara for over 2,000 hours by this point, so perhaps I was due a little luck.
