Gerry van der Walt

I believe that my passion and photography speaks for itself and my goal is to keep on creating images that will keep an awareness of our planet’s natural heritage in people’s minds.

By combining a passion for travel and nature photography with my education and more than 15 years experience as a field guide and lodge manager, my goal is to not only assist people, whether through teaching them new skills or pushing them creatively in capturing the beauty of nature, but also to create an awareness of the fragile balance that exists in nature.

I believe that my passion and photography speaks for itself and my goal is to keep on creating images that will keep an awareness of our planet’s natural heritage in people’s minds. At the same time, through the various Wild Eye safaris that I help conceptualize and host, I share the privilege of traveling around the world and spending time with people in unspoiled wilderness around the globe while assisting them to document their journey.Through Wild Eye I have helped create a vehicle which merges the raw beauty of traveling around the world with the ability to not only capture these moments on camera, but also by teaching and inspiring people along the way.
