Story from behind the lens: This was my first safari. Wildlife close ups and portraits can be very captivating, but those images can often be similar to images taken in captivity. I wanted to step back and create images that have a sense of place. Images of wildlife within the expansive rolling savannah landscape and big skies of the Maasai Mara. I also wanted to create some minimalist images with animals isolated against the sky/horizon with no distracting elements.
