Morondava, Madagascar

Brick Works, Madagascar

I left South Africa’s gleaming Johannesburg airport terminal muttering about the homogenization of the world,  bitching at the triumph of international anonymonist architecture. Squeaky clean, brightly lit, fairly shining with stainless steel modernity, I could be anywhere. Sydney or San Diego, Chengdu or Chicago, Dubai or Dallas. Landing in Antananarivo, I reminded myself, not for […]

Masai Mara, Kenya

Driver Repairs Flat Tire on Safari, Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya, Africa

One question I’m often asked is, where is your favorite place? I should have a quick and easy answer, but it always feels like picking your favorite child. They’re all different, and special in their own way. Maybe I don’t need to go back to visit the kids hurling rocks at me in Gaza, peel […]


Masai Mara Reserve, Kenya

Lioness and Camera, Kenya

Over the years, I have photographed lions from every angle and situation I can imagine. Lion sleeping. Lions hunting. Lions fighting. Lions f***ing. Lions sleeping some more. But I’m almost always working from the safety of a four wheel drive safari truck. It’s not just because I’m scared silly of the things. Though maybe I […]

Sabi Sands, South Africa

Lioness at Night, Sabi Sabi Reserve, South Africa

In the 13 years since I first traveled to Africa, I have always resisted private lodges and safari guides. Mostly, because I’m cheap. But I’m also stubborn. I’ve always believed that you remember a lot better when you learn the hard way. When I stepped off the plane and into Cape Town’s airport, I didn’t […]

Chobe National Park, Botswana

Nile Crocodile, Chobe National Park, Botswana

I hired a small boat for a view that didn’t include me endlessly bumping along dirt roads. We spotted a massive Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) sliding into the muddy water of the Chobe River in Botswana’s Chobe National Park near Kasane. And suddenly the relative security of the truck didn’t seem so bad. Photographed with […]


Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Truck on Road, Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Perhaps unwisely, I mounted a remote camera off the running boards of my rented pickup truck to get a low-angle view while driving along the dirt road along Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. At least it didn’t go skittering off across the desert like I thought it might. Photographed with a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II camera and 16-35mm […]

Savuti Marsh, Botswana

I leave camp with lights out at tree in the morning, driving by moonlight. I heard a lion’s roar near the campsite, and drive south. Stopping the truck a mile or two out, I sit and listen to the African night. A jackel’s yelp. Bird song. Baboons squabbling in a distant tree. No lions. And […]
