Bwindi National Park, UGANDA
One of the longest hikes totaling 14 hours. Struggling through thick forests, torrential downpour and altitude. This image was captured after heavy rainfall as I perched myself on a 45 slope leaning into the mountainside to keep my balance and capture this image.
AUTHORI have spent many years photographing wildlife in their natural habitat, focusing on endangered species to preserve the image of them in their natural habitat for future generations. I also aim to help people connect with nature and encourage the protection of all species. My passion for photographing wildlife has led me to some of the most incredible territories and extraordinarily remote places on earth – from tracking mountain gorillas in Uganda, to photographing snow leopards in the Himalayas. It has been a remarkable honour to witness so many wild animals along with capturing breathtaking landscapes and wonderful people within their communities. Photography is about patience and I respectfully take my time to emotionally connect with my subject, capturing a moment my audience can embrace.
Every image reflects the pure emotions and characteristics of each species, as well as telling a unique story of my adventures.
