Title: Born Savanna

Location: Erindi, Namibia, 2018

I remember the moment so vividly. The exact moment that I captured this portrait of a young Cheetah cub at Erindi back in 2018. Eyes affixed, scanning, curious, and innocent. I’ve been so fortunate to document his life from the very start. From just barely keeping up with mum in the thick dry bush, to now thriving as an adolescent Cheetah along with his brother. The pair roams the savannah, unknown to them that the future of Cheetahs rests on their shoulders.

But their future also rests on YOUR shoulders… on OUR shoulders.

Over the past few years, I’ve spent countless hours with wild Cheetah at Erindi. Tracking on foot, witnessing the gentleness of a mother as her cubs feed on milk, the excitement of a hunt, tense encounters of Cheetah with other big cats, and the countless other often unpredictable behaviors that distinguish Cheetahs.

I’ve also witnessed firsthand the reality of their demise across Africa.

Cheetahs are threatened by a multitude of factors. Population fragmentation, illicit pet trade, persecution by farmers protecting their livestock. And there are few safe places left for respite from such pressures. Coupled with a naturally high cub mortality rate, it’s been difficult for Cheetahs to gain traction at this critical juncture for the future of their species.

However, this particular cub exemplifies the dedication of those who choose not to accept the possibility of a world without Cheetahs. Born to a Cheetah named Savannah, he is the second generation of a rewilding program at Erindi in a conservation partnership between the Reserve, a true safe haven for wildlife, and the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF) a leader in the protection of this incredible species.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SIZE:

EXTRA-LARGE: Edition of 5. Total Size is 80 x 80 cm including a 5 cm border. This is a special release in connection with the incredible charity book “Remembering Cheetahs”. It has a different title “Remembering Cheetahs Cover”. As a limited edition of 5, it was first sold for $2000 USD with 100% going to charity through the Remembering Cheetahs Kickstarter book campaign. The second, sold in an online silent auction for $2400 USD, where again 100% of the proceeds went to support Cheetah conservation through the book launch. In this same spirit, independently, I’m dedicating 50% of the sales from this special edition to directly support the Cheetah Conservation Fund and their work at Erindi.

What are people saying about my prints?

Wilder, Twinning, & Motherhood
The stories and mission you share makes these prints even more special than just a beautiful photograph. These photographs bring to life memories, experiences, and dreams that we look forward to telling our children about!

Emily, USA

To me your photos are like a very tasteful crossing between a photograph and a painting. And the fact that the animals are portrait as serious as I'm used to see a human portrait being done but without losing the wilderness layer.

ONLINE vs. OFFLINE

I’ve been selling my prints offline in galleries, exhibitions, and world-renowned art shows to private collectors for years. You'll notice based on the color guide that many of the artworks already have a history of sales. This is the first time I’ve ever offered them to an online audience. Now that I'm selling online, I can offer a much greater selection at standard sizes at even more accessible prices. More below about sizes.
