Artur says:

I was on a photographic safari to Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe. One of my goals was to try and capture shots of wildlife in the early morning light of the so-called ‘Blue Forest’.
One morning, while driving slowly in search of an interesting subject, we noticed an incredible golden light breaking through the canopy a few hundred meters in front of us. We quickly parked our vehicle and got out to photograph the spectacle of light. We soon noticed a male impala moving into the scene. As I started shooting, another vehicle drove by, stirring up a cloud of dust to add even more dramatic effect to the image. There was a little time to think, as the light changed quickly, so I anchored my monopod with the camera and snapped several photos before the ‘elusive impala’ moved away.  That particular morning was one of several highlights of my visit to Mana Pools.

About Artur:

Poland

I am a wildlife photographer who’s childhood passion for nature led to studies in geology and work in energy industry.  Over the years while working for large corporations, I have spent every minute of my free time travelling, visiting various habitats and ecosystems in the Americas, Europe and Africa.  My love for African wildlife grew with every visit to the continent. This year, I have left a corporate life to focus on sharing my passion for wildlife and photography with fellow nature enthusiasts. I study animal behaviours, develop empathy and advance my knowledge through careful observation of wildlife. I develop my photo skills by constantly practicing, experimenting and observing great wildlife photographers. I look for unique settings and try to never miss opportunities provided by early morning and late afternoon light. My goal is too look into animals ‘soul’ and hope to evoke similar emotions in viewers of my work, that I experience while in the wild.
