By Richard du Toit
Richard du Toit grew up on a farm in South Africa, and as a young boy was fascinated with wildlife and birds. He found bird nests, read Gerald Durrell books, and dreamed of becoming a naturalist and ended up studying Zoology and Entomology at the University of Pietermaritzburg for 4 years!
An interest in photography became a major hobby when he worked in the Kruger Park for several years. In the years thereafter a love of nature and photography evolved into a professional career that has kept him happy and busy since 1995.
He spends much of the year traveling to wild places in Southern Africa, often on long roads trips.
His photographs have appeared in National Geographic, BBC Wildlife and Nature's Best magazines. He has written and photographed 5 books on African wildlife and one book of aerial photographs - Bird’s Eye View.
These canvases are available stretched on a natural timber frame.
