Artist bio: For over two decades South African born, GREG DU TOIT, has been solely devoted to photographing Africa’s wildlife. A period of 270 hours inside a waterhole in Kenya culminated in a cover story, ‘Living on the Edge’, for Africa Geographic magazine. Another published portfolio, ‘Beneath the Radar’, documented 22 months spent in the remote south of Tanzania’s Ruaha National Park. He was awarded the highest accolade in world wildlife photography with the title of ‘BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year’. His fine art wildlife prints have been shown in natural history museums around the world and hung in the National Geographic Store galleries of London and Singapore. Among his photographic books are the bestselling AWE, and Phototips – Getting it right in camera. His African memoir, Wilderness Dreaming, details his thrilling personal pursuit to discover his own lost Africa. GDT limited edition wildlife prints adorn private residences around the globe and he is well known for his conservation work. Watch this GDT slideshow on your phone.
Artist Statement: Based out of Hoedspruit, South Africa, I am a fine art wildlife photographer. All my work takes place in Africa and my family has been here since the 17th century. I only photograph animals in the wild (never in captivity – see my animal in its environment gallery and read a fun article here). I do not employ the use of camera-traps or drones in my photography. My artwork is from behind the camera and my artistic vision is realised in the field, in the moments leading up to the creation of a photograph. I see myself as a wildlife photographer in the traditional sense and I don’t identify as a digital artist. This outlook has allowed me to place in the ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ awards on several occasions. Believing that a picture does not paint a thousand words, I feel that photography is rather its own language and that a photograph expresses things that words cannot. Not only are photographs often indescribable using words but the camera holds the power to arrest a moment so brief that it was, at the time of taking, imperceptible to the eye and altogether inconceivable to the imagination. With light as my paintbrush, my camera and lens allow me to create visual poetry, capturing invisible slices of time and creating these miracle moments is what I do with my life. I am a solo non-commercial artist, offering prints to private collectors through this website and these mostly for intimate home spaces. I now invite you to browse my online gallery of wildlife prints and find the print that speaks to you. Watch this GDT slideshow on your laptop/desktop.
