I am passionate about what I do, enthusiastic in the manner in which I present it and in possession of an unquenchable thirst to explore our natural world. I spent 7 years working for the best safari lodge company in Africa — Singita Game Reserves. Through diverse safaris that I lead I get to expose guests to nature in a special way. Photography is an effective way for my guests to capture the beauty of nature they encounter on their travels with me. Thanks to a deep love for nature and photography instilled by my dad at a young age, I grew up with the constant desire to be as close as possible to wildlife. I followed through with my childhood ambitions and worked within the professional guiding industry for nine years as a lodge-based ranger, and at times as a travel photographer.

About Greg du Toit ...
In a world populated with excellent wildlife and nature photographers, some stand a little to the side with their own view and a completely different style of imagery. When those images take the world by storm, with exhibitions in the National geographic Store, London and in Conneticut, USA, people start to take notice. Meet Greg du Toit- naturalist, 8th generation African and fine art wildlife photographer. With 2 highly commended awards in the BBC wildlife competition- with both images in the fine art mould, Greg's photography is distinct and refined, much like his humour!
My love and passion for the African bush did. From a young age I was drawn inexplicably to the bush. As soon as I left school I went to live and work in the bush and for no pay I might add. My photography became an extension of this passion and a way to contain and share it. When you started out you bought a Nikon camera plus lens and you thought that was all you needed to be a professional wildlife photographer. You obviously don't subscribe to that thought anymore so tell us, what is needed in addition to the right equipment, to become a professional wildlife photographer?
Should I marry him. I am a soon-to-be Surgeon's wife and my boyfriend and I have started discussing the changes that are going to happen when he enters his residency. We keep getting more and more wedding invitations to our apt and with each one I feel like my dreams float farther and farther away. His dad and siblings are also doctors, hence his mom is quite use to the idea of being alone and independent. Vh65, your marriage is a black swan.
