Here we present to you his Photo Story Strokes Of Africa in his own words.
Why is Africa is a dream destination for photography? Is it because of the Big 5? I believe that its a no brainer. What makes Africa special is light and the ample amount of opportunities you have as a photographer to play around with it. The Savannah is one of the few natural spectacles of the world which gifts you with stunning light. The real challenge for photographers is to understand and read this light and chase it rather than species and subjects.
