Animal-scapes, or ‘animalscapes’, are simply animal scene photos and this boutique gallery has arisen from my passion for the wide spaces of Africa and the spirit of freedom that they embody.
I have purposefully taken a step back to capture the animal in its environment, spending months and even years, waiting for that decisive moment to assemble this wildlife landscape photography gallery. As such, all prints in this wide angle wildlife photography collection illustrate not only Africa’s creatures carrying out a wild existence but more importantly, it illustrates the environment in which these wild animals live. As such, the best term to describe this wildlife landscape photography or animal environment photography is to call it animal-scape photography. The prints themselves are affectionately known as ‘animalscapes’.
To assemble this animal in its environment gallery, I have journeyed to Africa’s most iconic regions and to more remote wildernesses. Taking you on a spellbinding journey of animal environment photography, each animal scene photo aims to connect you with the wild freedom that has drawn explorers and adventures to Africa’s shores for centuries, and each serves as a poignant reminder that the wild allure of Africa has not yet vanished.

A Misty Morning - On an especially beautiful and misty morning, in Zambia's Kafue National Park, a lechwe pauses to stare at me. The sublime light of dawn, combined with the rising steam, made me feel like I wanted to be nowhere else on earth.
Elephants and Egrets - A herd of elephant cross the savannah at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro in Kenya. As always, egrets are in close attendance, hawking insects disturbed by the elephants.
Serengeti Elephant - An elephant on the great plains of East Africa lifts its trunk to smell the rain, carried on the winds of an approaching storm at sunset (Serengeti National Park, Tanzania).
Forest Elephant - My safari to the Congo Basin was all about getting this one frame of a forest elephant in the wild tropical jungle.
