Title: Future Not Secured

Location: Namibia, 2019

Who am I to know my place?
I run, and I hide, I don’t feel safe.
I seek respite, I hide my face.
You seek my scales. You’ve sealed my fate.

Pangolins are literally the most illegally trafficked animal in the world. Sought after for their outer scales for use in traditional medicines and their meat sold in markets for consumption, they’re being driven to a fate of extinction at an alarming rate. Thousands upon thousands are taken from the wild every single year.

Pangolins belong in the wild and not in markets.


As the only mammal with scales, we risk losing one of our most peculiar and prehistoric-looking creatures due to pure ignorance. It has been proven scientifically that their scales have no medicinal quality, yet their numbers are still in decline as demand has risen in past years.

I’m hopeful that this will change soon, especially in light of what has happened this year.

I shot this portrait while on assignment with BTS Nature at Erindi Private Game Reserve in Namibia.

While out in the field, one of the other guides stumbled upon this Pangolin, which we aptly named ‘Olympus’ in the spirit of our mission (shooting with an Olympus Camera). Pangolins are generally quite rare to see in the wild since their feeding habits and shy tendencies result in infrequent sightings. But… Olympus was different. He seemed to have a confidence that I’d not seen in others of his kind. Almost as if he wanted to be seen, he allowed us to approach and photograph him whilst he posed in this peculiar fashion.


Perhaps he is aware – the plight of his species – and on this day he decided to allow us into his world. Just briefly, but long enough to understand his despair.

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.

Standard Sizing Guide

Each Print is only available in 4 standard sizes. There is no possibility for requesting custom sizes and there never will be in the future. What is on offer right now is what is available for each image. And once these prints are sold out, they are sold out forever.

*There are a few rare exceptions to the standard sizes where specific imagers are offered at a larger maximum sizes or abnormal dimensions because of a previous special release.
