2000 Hours

On a pristine game reserve in a remote corner of eastern Botswana lies a unique underground photo hide that is very close to my heart. In 2011 I assisted in setting up the hide and was tasked with the role of getting the word 'out there' through otherwise unattainable wildlife images. Over the following 2 years I dedicated roughly 2000 hours to photographing the array of life that visited the photo hide. This small collection is my justification for that time.
