Kenya February 2018

After a rainy January, February turned out to be a dry, hot and dusty month in the Masai Mara.  It was quite a struggle keeping my equipment dust free and I had to take great care when changing lenses. On my return I popped in to my Canon service agents Fixation, to have my camera sensors cleaned! It seems strange now to be thinking of this while sitting here in snowy London, where it is -3c.

This time I was in the company of my great friend Roberta Bondar, fellow photographer and Patron of my charity Hoopers Africa Trust. As always, it was a great pleasure and lots of fun.

I returned with some great leopard images. of Siri, Kabosa, Bahiti and Fig, along with some of their cubs, but for me the highlight was spending time photographing the Eurasian roller, a migratory visitor to the Mara.  While not quite as ‘showy’ as the native lilac breasted roller, it is beautiful all the same.  Plenty of new images to consider for my 2018 exhibitions.

I hope to see many of you back at the Oxo Gallery for my summer show, which runs from 27th July to 19th August 2018.

Kenya November 2017

I had an excellent 10 days in Kenya recently with my friend and guide Paul Kirui.  Thanks to Kicheche Bush Camp & Mara Explorer for, as usual, looking after us so well.  Some great leopard sightings in both The Masai Mara & Olare Orok Conservancy, especially the large male below. Male leopards are notoriously shy yet this was one of the most relaxed males I have photographed in a long time. I also had an encounter with some very young hyena pups, who would have thought they could be so cute, they are more like bear cubs.

A Happy Christmas to everyone and Best Wishes for a Happy & Healthy 2018.  I hope to see many of you back at the Oxo Gallery for my summer show, which runs from 27th July to 19th August 2018.
