Over the years, I've shot various Nikons, one Canon (I'm sorry, mom) and a bunch of phones.
Currently? A Sony NEX-5T with some cool Canon FD lenses.

    "Finding the words to describe Andre's wonderful photos of beautiful Africa, shall be hard to put into words, as most of his images are so amazing that there are no words to describe them. He is one of the very first contacts I had the pleasure of "meeting" on here, and has always left such encouraging words on my photos. He is a great Flickr friend and an amazing photographer. When you click over here to view his photos, you have to remind yourself to breathe, as they all really are that breathtaking and wonderful. I always knew that Africa was beautiful but never knew exactly how spectacular that beauty was until Andre showed it with his fantastic photos. Thank you Andre for sharing it's beauty... :)"

    "Everytime I see someone post something online about the Nikon D40 being limiting, I always feel an urge to direct them to andreinafrica's stream. He is living, breathing proof that a DSLR is a portal to freedom of expression, creativity and beauty.

    Thanks for sharing Africa with us, and yes, love every single one of those landscape shots! :)"

    "Andre is way too humble for the kinds of photographs he makes. Hugely talented in image making, funny and interesting as a writer and a great person to chat to during sunrise coffee on a Karoo farm."

    "To describe Andre's work is easy... amazing. He says what he thinks and his art is awesome. Always in quest of a new picture, he brings out the best of what his eyes can see to transform a simple pic into feelings and emotions.

    A true Artist."
