Wild Images – photography by Callie de Wet

Wild Images by Wild Images


It is never about the picture in the bag, it is always the anticipation of the next picture!

Flickr is not my only photo site, so I might not always comment, just because of time constraints.
Groups - I might add my pictures to groups that I am invited too, if possible, but I will not pursue too many groups, again due to time constraints. Please do not invite me to a post 1 award X group.

The above measurements are for me in order to survive, and still utilize the fantastic facilities here on Flickr.


Passed sixty, passionate about nature, birding and photography. Both my wife and I are birders, but not twitchers.

    "Sinds enige tijd ken ik het werk van Callie.Ik heb de tijd genomen om (bijna)al zijn foto's te bekijken.
    En wat ik zag aan foto's deed mijn mond open vallen van verbazing.
    Nimmer heb ik zulke mooie foto's gezien,en geloof me ik heb er veel gezien!
    Wat Callie maakt is van een ongelooflijke kwaliteit.
    Zoals hij het licht kan vangen heb ik nog nooit eerder gezien .
    Op een manier waardoor de dieren zo mooi uitkomen.
    Ik hoop dat Callie ooit een fotoboek maakt.Ik zal de eerste zijn om er een te bestellen!
    Mensen moeten de natuur respecteren en ik hoop dat het werk van Callie veel mensen zal inspireren tot het maken van mooie natuurfoto's en tot het besef dat de natuur geweldig mooi is en moet blijven.
    Waarom?Kijk naar de foto's van Callie en je weet waarom!"

    "It would be the easiest to write a testimonial for someone I have met in person. Therefore Callie is my first.

    I met Callie a couple of years ago after we have become cyber-friends on a photo website. When I met him I had just acquired my first camera and I was amazed at the photos he submitted. As our friendship progressed I came to see that this man in not only the quality photographer that all of you can judge for yourselves but a true "Naturalist" in every sense. (..spiders excluded).

    His love for nature shows in his art. He is a walking encyclopedia with animal facts and very interesting to be with.

    Even though he is my friend, I can not refer to him without the word "mentor" comming to mind."

    "Wild Images is not just a nickname or an avatar; it is the symbol and incarnation of "wildness" presented with the highest artistic endeavor.

    For those who are amazed by the photos of National Geographic, expect to experience similar amazement here. I am really impressed by two things Callie (Wild Images) taught me: the wonder of a place and how to embody that place through art."

    "One of the best, if not the best bird photographer I've come across ever. Perhaps with stiff competition from his fellow friend Nature Photographer. The pictures are all breathtaking and with great technical skill. Very careful with his composition, lighting and background. Browse and learn!"
