I earn a living as a 3D Visual Effects Supervisor and specialise in Motion Capture for the Film and Television Industry. My passion for photography started in Art School when I studied Graphic Design and had Photography as a subject. As I live in South Africa, unspoilt wide open spaces, dark starry skies, and breathtaking wildlife is always just a road trip away.

 

I am especially interested in Nature photography, Astrophotography; Macro photography, and Stapeliads (a type of succulent mainly found in the arid regions of Southern Africa).

I always consider my shelf blessed for living in such a wonderful place to see succulent plants; once I saw Martin's photos I was transported to succulent heaven, he captures the beauty of this plant right were they live!!! I just wanted to say "GRACIAS" for letting me know a place I only dreamed of...

Unas de las mejores paginas sobre flores. Ademas de buena calidad, vienen las fotos identificadas. Un trabajo no tan solo de fotografiar pero tambien de identificacion. Una pasion de fotografo que se siente viendo las fotos una despues de la otra.
