About John

Awards & Fellowships


In my personal capacity I am pleased to say my work has enabled me to participate in various conservation projects and work alongside research teams across Southern Africa and the Sub-Antarctic, as well as a part time lecturer in the field of conservation philosophy, tourism and field guiding.

Though my passion of conservation was born from problem solving and over the past few years I have not only been able to work with some incredible individuals and organisations across Southern Africa, but am proud to say have won numerous awards for innovation in conservation.

I look forward to working with you on one of our and your conservation programs or conservation marketing campaigns.

Educational Expeditions

Born from our syllabus based environmental education workshops the Educational Expedition division of my work focuses on hosting Primary School | High School | University Scholars | Corporates | Home School Groups | Private Groups on once in a life time educational camps and expeditions across Southern Africa. These 4-15 day projects not only aim to teach participants hard and soft skills around outdoor living, but too also make them aware of conservation projects and initiatives happening within our country.
Though attending one of our camps and expeditions participants will become part of ongoing scientific research projects, partake in data collecting and return home not only with knowledge but also skill sets too manage micro projects on their own.
We look forward to hosting you on one of our Educational Expeditions or working along side you to customise a Expedition for you.

Join Us


From basic photography and shaky video footage our team, equipment and skills have developed over time much like photography itself has evolved from the basic and forgotten pin hole cameras of decades ago to the 4k stedi-cams we currently use.

Today we are proud to say our team has been trusted to tell the stories not only of brands, but also various conservation organisations and projects across Southern Africa some of which include lodges, products and various vehicle manufacturers.

We pride ourselves in providing affordable and realistic packages for any occasion and work with our clients to tell their stories right.
