Andy and Sarah are a friendly husband and wife photography team whose love of wildlife runs deep and their passion for Africa infectious! Together over the last ten years they have travelled the globe photographing some of the world’s most impressive wildlife and their stunning images can be found on their website they share together (http://www.imagesofwildlife.co.uk). They both have a particular passion for the Maasai Mara, an area they have visited over 30 times in the last ten years. They have a vast experience of photographing the wildebeest migration, as well as an in-depth understanding and knowledge of the endemic wildlife. They have also previously conducted a census of the lion population within the Mara National Reserve and have previously assisted local predator projects with their intimate knowledge of this area.
Andy has an intimate understanding of wildlife and animal behaviour gained through his vast field experience and Sarah is also a qualified FGASA Level 1 South African Field Guide. Together with their photographic skills this makes them well placed to provide guidance in the field where needed. Sarah has also worked as a volunteer on a number of conservation and research projects and as a ‘wildlife spotter’ for the Disney Nature feature film ‘African Cats’, filmed on location in the Maasai Mara. Both Sarah & Andy have had their photographic work published in a number of magazines and press publications; including Travel Africa, BBC Wildlife, The Times, The Telegraph, Daily Mail, Daily Express and many other commercial publications. In addition Andy’s excellent photographic skills have been recognised with two years of reaching the finals stage of the world renowned Veolia ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year Award’.
