This photograph of a Pearl-spotted Owlet in the Waterberg Biosphere will always have a special place in my heart, as it is the first “habitat shot” that I was brave enough to share publicly some seven odd years ago. I knew nothing about composition, design or what makes a great photograph but just loved how this image transported me back to this special moment in the Waterberg and our first family trip with our new born son; Joshua. It was my wife who encouraged me to share it and I am so glad she did! Since then I have been encouraged to follow my heart, to research art and design and to dream about new ways to show off birds and their incredible environments. It has been such an amazing journey and I can’t wait to see what God has planned for the years ahead.
