OUS African wildlife photography talk

I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up as a hobby later – so that was that for 30 years! I ended up reading English at Oxford and working as a strategy consultant for a few years before 'retiring' at the age of 29! I then travelled round the world for seven years, doing four ski seasons and working on an internet start-up in San Francisco among other things, before finally returning to London in 2005. At that point, consulting work felt too stressful, so I decided to go 'quality of life'. I'm now a private tutor and wildlife photographer, and I spent four months this year teaching photography and taking pictures in Africa. My talk will focus on that, so I'll be showing a few pictures and videos from my time over there and sharing a few stories about the most exciting moments. I saw three kills plus various animals and birds fighting and mating, so there's plenty to talk about!

Here is the schedule of events:

1800-1830 Drinks

1830-1915 Slideshow and talk

1915-2015 Drinks and discussion

I’ll also be bringing along a few prints and a book of my favourite shots called Predators & Prey. All these will be available for guests to have a look at after my talk.

This event is the latest put on by the Oxford University Society, the alumni association for the University of Oxford.
