Michael Laubscher

Haunted by the allure of spectacular wildlife and African sunsets. I am a hunter-gatherer of natural light and candid moments, an appetite whet with a taste of the unknown and the smell of home; “This Is Africa”!

My passion for the bush and everything that comes with it started as far back as I can remember. Thanks to my parents who introduced me to wilderness areas at a very young age, I managed to live my dream by obtaining a background in conservation and being a lodge based ranger for the past four years, working in world-renowned places such as the Timbavati and Sabi Sands Private Game Reserves.

Through this I have not only gained abundant knowledge of the environment but also acquired brilliant people skills. I am now ready for a new adventure to not only share my knowledge of the wide range of fauna and flora, but also to share my photography knowledge with everyone to ensure that they too can capture that special moment for eternity.

Capturing those unique moments out in the field are one of the most thrilling experiences, knowing that you are sharing that space with the wild animals, earning their trust, documenting their beauty and behavior, one cannot deny the fact that it is a very unique feeling and worth the experience time and time again. Something special happens deep in the heart of the wilderness, so come and join me! Experience the wonders of the African bush!
