What is the biggest challenge in wildlife photography?
"Anticipation is half the battle; being in the right place because you know what is going to happen next gives you time to set up the shot from the right position and angle."
How has working together made a difference to your job?
"We are lucky to work as a team – one of us can be concentrating on capturing the action while the other is focusing on another aspect. For instance, I can get Angie into the right position in our 4x4 vehicle when we are on safari due to my understanding of the animals' behaviour. Being a team has transformed the way we work for the better."
What do you think about contemporary trends in wildlife photography?
"There is a lot more emphasis on remotes and drones. It is exciting to see new perspectives and ways of capturing the wonder of the natural world as long as they are not overly intrusive. There is huge pressure in wildlife photography to 'get the shot'. That sometimes translates into an unseemly scramble at sites of natural wonder."
What is the minimum kit someone should equip themselves with when going on safari?
"If we were travelling light and wanted to cover ourselves on safari or on a travel shoot we would take two Canon EOS-1D X Mark II bodies, a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens, a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens (very versatile for people and landscapes), a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM lens, a Canon Extender EF 1.4x III, a Canon Speedlite and (if we could get away with it) a Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM lens."
What do you know now that you wish someone had told you when you were starting out?
"Be more adventurous. Don't expect the phone to ring. Understand light and exposure. Study the work of all genres of photography to take inspiration into the field with you. And constantly work on developing and refreshing your own vision and style."
