More than a horn

More than a horn

£95.00Price

I love photographing all wildlife in Africa because you never know what behaviours you may find the animal exhibiting, but my all-time favourite subject has to be the rhino. I am slightly biased – I’ve studied the black rhino, so I know how amazing these creatures are.

 

Aside from the fact that they are my favourite animal, rhinos are notoriously difficult to photograph. As white rhinos have very long, low-slung jaws, it’s almost impossible to get a photo of them looking at you. Black rhinos are shy and particularly skittish; I’m sure many photographers have their fair share of rhino bottom photos as they disappear into the bush!

 

Because rhinos don’t usually stick around long enough for tourists to observe their natural behaviours, I think that they’re quite misunderstood and misrepresented. It’s easy to capture the majesty of a male lion or the grandeur of an elephant matriarch, but what about the gentleness of a rhino, the protective mother of her calf, the young bull trying to establish a territory.

 

It became an obsession to try and capture the rhino how I saw them; as interesting individuals with their own personalities, quirky characteristics and unique behaviours. I love the challenge it brings and that is why the rhino is not just my favourite animal but also my favourite subject to photograph.

Why Lewa Wildlife Conservancy?

It's personal...

Lewa Wildlife Conservancy is a private reserve in the centre of Kenya. Originally founded as a rhino sanctuary in 1983, Lewa's rhino population has grown from 15 founding individuals to over 169 rhinos today. Lewa now holds 14% of Kenya's rhino population and is a leading pioneer in rhino conservation. By providing a suitable and safe habitat for threatened wildlife, Lewa has also enabled other key African species to thrive, including the critically endangered Grevy's zebra, elephants, lions, wild dogs, cheetah, the critically endangered Pancake tortoise and many more...

I have a masters in Wildlife Conservation and my thesis investigated black rhinos. I spent 7 months researching the black rhino population on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy and I worked with some of the most inspiring, passionate and amazing people that I have ever met. I have witnessed first-hand the incredible work that is conducted on Lewa: vital scientific research, cutting-edge anti-poaching strategies, working closely with the local communities and providing educational outreach programmes to the surrounding schools. Lewa is truly a catalyst for conservation.

 

20% of all profits will be donated to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, specifically to the Research & Monitoring Department - my home for seven months, and a department whose work is vital for the conservation of several critically endangered species across the landscape.
