Title: The Encounter

Location: Erindi, Namibia, 2017

Are you connected to Nature?

I almost never published this image for fear that I wouldn’t be understood. We all have a connection with nature. Obviously. We’re a part of it, right? But do we all see it the same, most definitely not.

Maybe you can relate in some way. Over the years of spending so much time with wildlife, I’ve begun to realize just how differently I see nature. The way that I mentally process every encounter with each of my subjects is unique. And the way that you interpret my representation (this portrait) of my own interactions is equally unique.

So… what do you see in this image? Perhaps you see respect. Intensity. Fear. Power. What is it in the eyes do you understand?

Note: This highly sought-after image is only available in Extra-Large. Since its first public display in 2018 in São Paulo by the Gabriel Wickbold Gallery, the artwork has been quickly recognized by collectors. Featured in many exhibitions and art shows since 2018, there is only a handful of this image available. The price has been set accordingly to reflect prior sales and the demand of the market.

This is the first time the print is available online. And for 48-hours I’m offering it at a massive 50% off. And I’ll never, ever offer this portrait at this price again. There’s just too few left. Also, you'll notice that I've added "The Encounter II" to the online store. It's the opposite in tone of The Encounter and the two are a pair. If you purchase both works together, I’m offering an additional 25% off the combination.

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.

The Juicy Details - Why Are My Prints Different?

Limited Edition means I will only produce a limited number of prints and that’s it. Every print comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity with my signature. The certificate and the accompanying print are authenticated by the uniquely numbered matching holograms for both items.

Vibrant colors and only the highest quality hand-selected materials provide a unique impression of my subjects. Produced by theprintspace in the UK and printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag, 320 GSM museum-grade textured paper. Archival quality guaranteed to last 100 years.

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.
