Imagine yourself seated in a boat while navigating across Zambezi River in Zambia, Africa. This picture were shut by the end of the day, and every time I look at it, I can still remember the exactly moment when I clicked the button. See you next month!

Next Trip, Africa!

We are planning our next trip to Africa which should be happening on the second semester of 2013. The idea is to invite and bring couple of photographers with us to share this exciting experience. I am still working with our base in Africa in order to set up itinerary and prices. Stay connected and don't hesitate to get in touch with us for more information.

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. They are responsible for the nursery of orphan elephants in Nairobi, Kenya. A great and very hard job to help the orphans, normally victims from poachers.

No pain, no gain!

It is not easy, not easy at all. We carry such a heavy equipment, we don't sleep well, we don't eat well, no drinks, no shower, we live close to the danger at all the times, we standing and or walking for long hours, but at the end of the day, we feel great when see stunning images, and  personally, I feel very proud to be part of  very little community called WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHERS.  

Fresh Fish!

Early Morning

This is a great view from a very early morning inside the crater. It was fresh and crispy morning, full of live, plenty of animals as gnus, zebras, lions, elephants, impalas, hyenas, birds, ostriches, rhinos and hippopotamus.

Cleaned Bones!

Unbelievable the way they clean the bones. Quite tough to see it, but interesting too. According to our Maasai guide, it was a fresh kill, and not found by Hyenas yet. 

Teaching the cubs!

A lioness teaching her cubs how to share and eat a kill. It was one of the most educative lessons I ever had in the wild. Really amazing the way they do and how they prepare their babies for the real wildlife.

This is lovely view from the lovely place called Ngorongoro. The image was shut inside the crater in a very early morning. Quite interesting the way they live, and how they get this wonderful colour.

A lion cub, a lovely cat!

Look at this beautiful creature, I never get tired to see such a lovely animal. Lions can be very dangerous, or better saying, they are very dangerous, but also very special creatures.

Simply Beautiful...

Relaxing...

I was quite surprised when got this bird close to a resting area inside the park, even with all the noise produced by the children around, it was very relaxed and enjoying the afternoon by the lake.

S.Paulo Zoo

We finally made it last thursday. 23 of my children from Creche S.Jorge in Santos were visiting the S.Paulo Zoo. At least one thing was guaranteed, they had a lot of fun together.
