Staying in Polokwane Limpopo Prov. South-Africa !

Married to an angel and blessed with 3 kids !

Enjoying wildlife, safari's, 4x4's and photography !

 

After marriage I stopped working fulltime as a safari-guide ,now doing safari's and bookings only parttime.... for the pure love of people and nature. Focus on those tourists who don't want to do the "big group" thing , but rather explore nature and places in small personalised groups.

 

Being a wildlife/nature photographer myself, I do know the needs in terms of filming wildlife and nature in this photo- heaven in which I'm blessed to live.

Chris has an eye for the beauty of his country and its nature which his photography brings to the rest of the world through some of the most stunning photography I have seen. I love he has continued to grow as a photographer, unafraid to experiment and explore, but most of all that he shares it with us. I have no doubt he will continue to astound us with his work, and that we will continue to see why he loves Africa so much.

Chris is one of the most amazing photographers I have ever seen. The beauty and magic that he captures are just breathtaking. I love browsing his sets when I need to escape everyday life.

Chris is the best African wildlife photographer I've see on flickr. What is so great about his work is that the intrepetations are so unique in a field where almost every idea has already been shot. He has an amazingly creative eye and I always love seeing his latest shots.

The images in Chris's portfolio show him to be an expert photographer. His wildlife shots are some of the best you will see on Flickr... he captures the colours, the atmosphere and above all the sheer majesty of his subjects... fantastic!

Chris's photo's are awe inspiring. Proof of a creator is evident in his absolutley fantastic wildlife work. These photos makes me want to visit his country. These photos are what photography should be about I think.

The photographs that I see from Chris are full of life ... his life. They are absolutely incredible views of life ... these photographs are views of, to put it simply, another world to most of us! Keep up the excellent work!
