Andrew Field is a leisure photographer with a special passion for wildlife work. He lives in Harare, Zimbabwe and does most of his photography in southern Africa. He started working with cameras at an early age, when black and white film predominated. His career in law enforcement exposed him to scenes of crime photography on occasions and a brief spell working in journalism and public relations disciplines saw his active use of a camera. It was, however, the attraction of the bush which drew him into the wild, where he was most happy, to photograph nature. Andrew is an active member of the Mashonaland Photographic Society, having been its treasurer for several years. He occasionally writes and blogs on the subject of photography, amongst other things.
Southern Africa has a diverse flora and fauna which is at considerable risk due to political and environmental issues. The author is enthusiastic about his photography and conservation. These blog pages will be dedicated to issues about wildlife in the sub continent and will discuss various aspects of photography, which interest the writer. Andrew will describe himself as an keen leisure wildlife photographer, but, sadly, admits he has not been able to get into the bush as much as he would like to pursue his passion. Two areas which he enjoys are Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe, and Etosha in Namibia. The scope and diversity of southern African wildlife sactuaries is incredible and one hopes that you can share Andrew’s love for wildlife photography in the years ahead.
