"What an awesome privilege to view the wonderful detail of God's creation through a man-made lens!"

I am a lawyer, photographer and conservationist (not necessarily in that order) from South Africa. Photography is my passion and I enjoy every moment of this wild ride through the African plains, bush and sky... Read more about me on MY WEBSITE...

Interests




I had the privilege photographing an amazing animal a couple of years ago - a leopardess in the dry kalahari desert of the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa. A later learned that her name was "Langklaas", but unfortunately I will never be able to photograph her again... 

Read the first part of my blog post about her on my BLOG... I will post the second and last part of my story about her during the course of next week...

Hidden by LinRuPhotography
Hidden
It has been a long time, but patience is a virtue... I have been attempting to see and photograph the elusive leopards of the Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa since 2009 - It reached a point where people would joke about how "unlucky" I was, but after many days and many hours of patience it finally came together about a week ago...

Dark Reflection by LinRuPhotography
Dark Reflection
Today, 22 September 2014, is WORLD RHINO DAY, but even more than that, a day for some serious introspection by mankind to assess how the tragedy of the loss of our rhinos will in the future reflect on the morals and standards of today's generation! What will you tell your grandchildren?!

Please visit www.stoprhinopoaching.com/ to see how you can make a difference...

Elephant Portrait by LinRuPhotography
Elephant Portrait
Part of my mission to the Kruger National Park in South Africa was to add some elephant images to my portfolio - This was one of the images that stood out for me! Maybe it is the expression in the eye or maybe the story behind the eye...

Will our elephants suffer the same fate than our rhinos? The warning signs are already there...!!!

Close Quarters by LinRuPhotography
Close Quarters
Being close to the most aggressive and most dangerous member of the big five family is an experience on its own... Getting even closer with a long lens almost takes you on a journey into the soul of the majestic african buffalo!

Rooiputs waterhole, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, South Africa...

I suppose these two were enjoying the early morning sun that brought some warmth as much as I did, after sunrise temperatures of -8 degrees earlier that morning...
