I am from Namibia (Africa) and live in a town on the west coast called Swakopmund.
Namibia is a photographer’s dream – it boasts wild seascapes, rugged mountains, lonely deserts, stunning wildlife, remnance of colonial cities and most importantly, space. It is one of the least populated places in the world.
It's horizons are wide and its skies open. The spirit of Africa dwells in wild places and it's incredible diversity. It's a place of infinite space and beauty .... a place of texture and shape, of light and colour.
My hart belongs here, Africa lives in my soul.
I hope to capture some of this beauty and share it with you.

I got bitten by the photographers bug in May 2007 while on holiday in Botswana. Since then I bought my own camera and various lenses. I am in the process of learning and experimenting. It is a great journey!!

Camera : Canon EOS 350D / 400D
Nikon D40
Canon 600D
Lenses : Canon EFS 18-35mm
Tamron 70-300mm Tele-Macro
Sigma 10-20mm Wide angle
Nikon DX 18-35mm

All advice more than welcome.
