My first trip to Africa (South Africa and Kenya) at my mid-century mark on a zoo-sponsored wildlife safari was a major epiphany in my life. Prior to that trip, photography had been an interest, but hardly a passion and certainly not a career. I returned from those two weeks knowing what I wanted to do when I grew up. It was the wildlife that moved me, the excitement of the hunt, learning about habits and behaviors, and I set out to become a wildlife photographer. My second and third trips – both to Tanzania – are the backdrop of all the African work I present here. As I started work on this online presentation I quickly realized that the tens of thousands of images I’ve shot recently in Africa are too large a story to tell in a single chapter, so I have divided this tale into chapters, as you see represented here.
