Hi. My name is Andrew Jenkins. I live in Cape Town, South Africa, and I am a passionate conservationist and raptor biologist. I have a background in academia, with research interests that include falcon demography and avian collision ecology, but these days I work as a consulting specialist, striving to minimise the harmful impacts of industrial development on birds. While I am a firm believer in the need to base conservation action on sound science, I am also increasingly struck by the power of stills-photography to cultivate in people a genuine concern for the welfare of the natural environment.

My lifestyle presents many opportunities for me to photograph nature, and quite recently I began taking my camera along wherever I go, hoping to capture some of the beauty and drama of the animals I encounter and the landscapes I see. This blog showcases some of the resulting images, perhaps with a view to taking my amateur interest to another level…

The photographs presented here are of wildlife and landscapes; mostly birds, and mostly in AfricaAll the images are available as higher-res digital files at a reasonable price -please contact me if you are interested. New images will be added to the pages of this blog on a regular basis. Also, brief stories with pics will be posted regularly, as a sort of living, illustrated diary of my ongoing encounters with nature and photography.

Please do not use any of these images without my written permission to do so.

    1. Thanks for the kind words Andrew. That VE shot was taken at the site in Silvermine, looking down over Hout Bay.
