Daniel was raised in the Okavango Delta while his parents ran safari camps in the early 90’s. The young family moved to Maun where Daniels Dad put the two boys through primary school off the sales of his own postcards (He was a keen wildlife photographer!). At age 12 Daniels dad gave him his old Konica Minolta film camera, kicking off a lifetime passion for photographing the incredible natural world he lived in. Photography remained a hobby for many years of work and travel before Daniel eventually moved back to Botswana and was again spending long stints in the wild. As Daniels skill and experience grew his photography started to take a front seat and steadily turned into a profession.
Today, Daniel runs a travel agency in Botswana that focuses on creating photographic expeditions to interesting corners of Africa. Daniel leads the expeditions as a photographic guide and provides photographic workshops to professional and amateurs alike. Daniel also a videographer, he runs a small media production house that produces film and still content primarily to the travel/safari industry. He is on the editorial team for the Discover Botswana magazine, (Botswana’s annual photographic publication) and has been featured in other publications. Daniel was also due to present at the 2020 Wild Shots Photography event in Cape Town.
Daniels main focus is wildlife photography, but he believes diversity is very important and enjoys working on any travel/lifestyle project. He aims to draw out emotion with his images, and through this, hopes to play an important role in wildlife conservation. His images range from interesting behavior to more artistic approaches in high-key and low-key styles. The end goal is to provide the viewer with a “moment in time” that is relatable, beautiful and inspiring.
