Title: Split Personality
Location: Erindi, Namibia, 2018
How do you reflect?
Lately… most likely as the reflection on a phone screen, right? Hear me out. On one hand, we live more than ever in our phones. You and I both know it’s the truth, right? 90% of you will read this on an Apple, Galaxy, or Google device. Probably alone and indoors. We’ve become conditioned to the “inside”. Inside our phones, inside our homes, and away from the world outside. And as a result, well. We all have split personalities. Let me explain what I mean.
We’ve developed an inside self, where we connect with this digital world. Staring into our own digital reflections we can disappear for hours and not know what we did for all that time. All the while, slowly losing our sensitivities to what exists beyond the walls of our lockdowns. If you are reading this, I would bet you’re a type though that makes time to be outdoors whenever possible. To listen to the birds. To feel the breeze on your balcony or in a nearby park. All in an attempt to keep your first personality alive. The outdoors version of you. Am I making any sense so far?
If you’re still with me, I’m getting to the point, I promise. I captured this image in 2018 in Namibia. Sitting on the opposite side of a lake from this male Cheetah. The evening summer air heavy with the scent of the acacia tree. In the muddy patch where I sat, spikes and thorns pricked my arms, legs, and butt. I could hear at least 5 different types of birds calling their last calls for the evening. Zebras honked in the distance. Their dust carried slowly on the light breeze. And a Cheetah was literally looking directly at me as he cautiously drank from the water’s edge. I was in touch with every tiny detail of the moment. Connected to nature. And the outdoors me was alive. The phone was on the truck. No network anyways.
Fast-forward to now. I’m sitting inside, writing this reflection that you’ll read inside. On a bright screen. Hopefully, the description produced a visualization that took you outside? Okay… so the point of all this. I really just want to encourage you to recognize that we all have to live with this reality. That we all have two personalities. We can’t let the outdoors us slip away. We have to keep it alive while we’re stuck inside right now all over the world. Let this portrait be a reminder for you to meditate on the strong memories you have. And to cherish the moments you can break away right now from the indoors and your phone. Because if you lose the outdoors you, you've lost everything that really matters.
SIZING GUIDE & ADDITIONAL DETAILS BELOW ON THIS PAGE.
Secure Delivery: Because the packages provided by the supplier are so protective, prints are rarely damaged. However, if a package does arrive damaged and the print is also damaged, you can contact me directly by email. You’ll need to photograph the package and the print and send the details to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your order number and tracking info.
Delivery Time: Orders ship out within 24-hours of your purchase, but can take up to 15-days to arrive, so please have patience. I'm using the trusted service of theprintspace located in London, UK. They're incredible, but only offer Flat Rate Worldwide shipping, which is limited in terms of order tracking numbers. From my experience so far with the previous print sale, everyone has received their orders, but due to COVID delays, things seems to take a bit longer than normal. Keep in mind that I'm all alone in trying to manage the print store right now, but I promise, you will get your print!
Estimated Average Shipping Times.
- Europe: 3-5 Days
- USA & Canada: 7-9 Days
- Rest of the World: Up to 10 Days
As a final request, please consider emailing me only after 15-days from the day you purchased. I wish I could respond to every customer with the tracking details, but it's quite overwhelming since I've received hundreds of orders during the most recent sale period. I wish the system was automated, but unfortunately it's all manual at the moment. Thank you for your patience and consideration.
Exchanges & Returns:
Straight refunds are not accepted as these are limited editions prints, but I’m confident you’re going to love the print and cherish it forever. But if it isn’t what you expected, or it’s somehow damaged you can exchange it for free. Once the package is delivered, you’ll have 5-days to notify me via email email@example.com if the print is either damaged or if you’d like to exchange it for another of equal value. Shipping is free if the print is damaged, but if you want to exchange the print, you’ll need to cover the shipping costs, plus the cost of the prints. Unfortunately, I cannot accept back prints that have been delivered as there is too high a risk of them being damaged or lost in the shipping. I do not keep an inventory of prints as all orders are made within 24-hours of purchase and shipped out from the print lab in London or Germany. Therefore, because I do not keep a stock, I cannot accept back prints for this reason.
Secure Payment: Card details are never stored and if using any other payment method like PayPal, I’ll never have access to any of your sensitive payment details. Everything is handled through Shopify and is fully encrypted.
What is the option to pay in instalments on Shop Pay?

Paying in instalments on Shop Pay allows you to split your purchase amount into 4 equal, biweekly instalment payments—with 0% interest, no hidden or late fees, and no impact on your credit score. In some instances, your first payment is due when you make your purchase; otherwise, your first payment is due 2 weeks after your purchase.

No, there are no late fees if you miss a scheduled payment.
Which payment methods are accepted if I use the option to pay Instalments on Shop Pay?
The instalments option on Shop Pay is available on debit and credit cards.
Edition Numbers: All prints are limited edition. Once the edition sells out there is never going to be another printed. Ever. At this time I can not accommodate special requests for specific edition numbers. Although it is a common practice when purchasing through galleries and exhibitions to ask for a specific edition number, the ordering system that I currently have in place does not allow for easy modifications after the order is placed online. For artwork that has a history of sales, you may receive a random As such, if you order two prints of the same image, you might not get consecutive edition numbers. For example, you might get Edition 5 of 15 and 1 of 15 for the same image even though you order the prints at the same time and even if the print appears to be almost sold out online.
Any other Questions: Feel free to contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
