As herds of springbok (Antidorcas marsupialis) roam the dry open grasslands of the Kalahari, they often create mobile roadblocks for safari vehicles. But who can expect them to politely follow our rules of the road, when they are taught tailgating as a survival skill?

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.
