Stu Porter, Nelspruit Member Since March 2011 Artist Statement I have had a passion for wildlife from an early age, and this passion led me to become a qualified nature guide, operating in my home country of South Africa. Observing the fascinating lives and interesting behaviours of African wildlife, led to an increased desire to capture these as frozen moments in time. In 2003 I completed my BA (Hons) degree in Wildlife Photography at Blackpool College in the UK.
In 2003 my wife and I started our own company http://www.wild4photographicsafaris.com specializing in taking small groups of nature photographers to some of Africa's most well know destinations, such as the Kruger National park in South Africa, Kenya's Masai Mara and Tanzania's Serengeti. These are some of the best locations to photograph African Wildlife and my gallery shows some of my work from these locations.
I have strived for simplicity and impact in the images I have in my gallery, trying to get away from the 'normal' African Wildlife Photographs. My pictures depict the actual moment frozen in time, as well as a unique finish to the photograph created during many hours of post processing and photoshop work.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to see more of my work.
