HANNES LOCHNER

Hannes is a multi-award-winning photographer who has been a professional wildlife photographer since 2007.

He has always been fascinated by the arid regions of southern Africa, and the Kalahari was on top of his list. His name is synonymous with the Kgalagadi in general- and leopards in particular.

Hannes has produced five magnificent photographic collections, three of which were dedicated entirely to the Kalahari. To achieve this, he lived in the Kalahari for six years, where he spent hundreds of hours capturing inspiring images of this captivating landscape and its enigmatic inhabitants.

Hannes has an extraordinary talent for composition and his wizardry with light allows him to create photographs that communicate the essence of the animals and landscapes telling their story. It is his passion for art that enables him to stand out as a master in an era where photography has become everyman‘s game. It is his mastery of the art that enables him to continually create photographic volumes that one simply can‘t overlook.

Hannes has been recognized internationally receiving several awards over several years from the prestigious BBC‘s Wildlife Photographer of the Year, and Natures Best Awards, SIPA etc. – competitions. Also, a great number of his photos and articles have been published in both national South African press as well as in well known international publications.

The books Hannes has published so far are Colours of Southern Africa, Colours of the Kalahari and The Dark Side of the Kalahari, Kalahari Photo tips: Photographer on Location and Planet Okavango.

Noa Köfler, his wife, joined him in 2010 to do all the film work on the “Dark Side of the Kalahari” project, for example, “A day in a Wildlife Photographers Life” & the Promo video of the third, fourth and fifth publication

QUINN KLOPPERS

Quinn was born in Zimbabwe and is purely African, not just by birth but also in his attachment to the wild places that he grew up in.

Being raised in one of Africa’s truly wild areas allowed him to create a

relationship with the wild animals that can only be found in a few remaining places on the planet. In the year 2000 he became a licensed guide in Zimbabwe and spent his time immersing himself and his clients in wild areas both state and private.

 

The progression to capturing his experiences on camera was a very natural progression, allowing him to share with others what he gets to experience on a daily basis.

His knowledge of the technical side of photography and his understanding of the animals and environments that he works in have allowed him to capture some truly unique and breathtaking images.

Not one to settle into the routine he is always trying to capture never been done shots and discover new techniques and technologies to help him improve his craft.

He is always ready to pass on what he has learnt to people and that is one of the reasons he is truly one of Africa’s premier guides and photographers.
