My Summer Exhibition July 2020

Dear Friends,

I hope this message finds you well during these challenging times.

As many of you know, this week should have seen the opening of my annual Summer Exhibition at the gallery@oxo on London’s South Bank. Unfortunately, as with so many planned events, We have had to cancel. I will of course miss seeing you all. Last year, during the Exhibition’s four weeks run, the gallery saw more than fourteen thousand visitors through its doors, so it will be a much quieter time for me this year. The good news is, however, that I am taking this year’s Exhibition online, where you can view many of my favourite images from around the globe which I hope you will enjoy.

Hopefully it won’t be too long before I can return to the Masai Mara in Kenya. Despite having travelled to all seven continents, it is still one of my favourite places on earth and a place I visit often, not only as a photographer, but also for my charity, Hoopers Africa Trust (HAT). With Kenya going into lockdown and schools and universities closing, our HAT students have been sent home to their villages.

Looking further ahead, I am pleased to announce that I will be exhibiting again at gallery@oxo in Summer 2021 and very much look forward to seeing you then if not before!

Kenya – September 2017

I have just returned from our biennial trustees visit to my Charity, Hoopers Africa Trust Kenya in the Masai Mara. The Charity provides education to disadvantaged girls in Kenya. See for more information.

Whilst there I was able to allocate some time to my photography. August is not renowned as being a time of rain, but we were subjected to some incredible down pours and storms. The rains very quickly raised the river levels which made the Wildebeest crossings more daunting than usual and stranded a pride of Lions on the bank, not wishing to risk the fast flowing waters.

Below is one of my favourite images from the trip. Click on the image below to view a gallery of further images…

A message from Paul Kirui, our Hoopers Africa Trust Kenya Chairman with the good news of another of our students graduating.

“Please share my joy in witnessing the graduation of another star in the Hoopers family.

Mercy Netaiya graduated today from Kabianga university. This is definitely an addition of value to our charity.

Here below are the few photos I took. I also presented her with our HAT graduates’ medal.”
