Portrait capture of Hamadryas Baboon
Hamadryas Baboons are active and intelligent primates that have captivated Melbourne Zoo visitors since 1948. Their custom-built enclosure recreates the environment of the north-east African savannah, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the complex social world of a baboon troop.

Although once hunted for their skins and used in large numbers in medical research, this species is not under threat; in fact the wild population is thought to be increasing. However, in some areas, the spread of agriculture and drought is putting pressure on some groups of baboons. Northern Kenya is facing its worst drought in six decades leaving people, livestock and wildlife desperately competing for survival.

I am a passionate Amateur nature and wildlife photographer and like to dabble in all forms of photography. I find each photographic discipline presents its own challenges and rewards when you get it right. I also am a volunteer photographer for the RSPCA in NSW. I am a Nikon man and have just migrated to full frame however there are a number of spots left for additional lenses.
