I'm really excited to be launching my first wildlife photography exhibition in the USA, at The Photographer's Eye Gallery in Escondido, so thought I'd share a sneak preview with you on a short guided walkthrough.

I've won the Greatest Maasai Mara Photographer Of The Year Contest, March 2019!

The winning shot is this male lion shaking raindrops off his mane after a downpour at the start of the rainy season.  It is called 'Microc...
