Photographer Spent Countless Hours With Elephants, Here Are The Best 25 Photos!

My love of white and black photography is just surpassed by my love of African wildlife, in particular, elephants. A years ago on my first wildlife safari in Uganda. We discovered a herd of elephants, my very first encounter with these splendid beasts was one a frightening one.

Unfortunately, the past had not respected the elephants living in this reserve. They had actually been looked for their ivory. Despite the fact that searching no longer takes location, elephants do not forget or forgive quickly. Whenever we drove near the elephants, they would charge. I was a novice wildlife professional photographer at the time, and this encounter made me really careful of elephants.

I fell for black and white photography after finding Don McCullins book A Retrospective while on a lunch break in the city of London, where I worked as a money broker throughout the 80s/ 90s. I then fell for wildlife artists Kim Donaldsons and David Shepherds work; they both had a big impact on my color photography and design.

Comprehending elephant behavior has actually permitted me the privilege of photographing special moments that couple of individuals will ever witness. As a fine-art wildlife professional photographer, my objective is to share stunning black and white prints of African wildlife. Ideally, to fire up an enthusiasm and inspire for all wildlife on our beautiful world.

It was a wonderful minute as my partner Nicolinah and baby kid Neo, 3 years, were in the vehicle with me as I photographed the family of elephants protecting their newborn. Sometimes they were distressed when the bull was kicking the child elephant, his shrieks and cries impacted us all. They asked me to leave the sighting as they struggled to deal with the events. Fortunately, the herd rallied around the infant, allowing me to record “Bonds of Love.” And we left sensation better.
