Leaving behind their 13 year old public relations and marketing business, Sharna and Daryl Balfour headed off to Botswana to follow their dreams. They managed a safari camp for nearly three years, using their photography and journalism skills to capture and record the wildlife. They then made a move that would make them two of the most prestigious and well recognised wildlife photographers in the world.
In 1989 they moved to Zululand to write a book on the horrendous Rhino poaching in the area. After spending a year on the book their dream became true. They have now published many books together and travel extensively capturing unique and breathtaking wildlife photography.
Working with and learning from some of the world's leading conversationalists and wildlife photographers, Daryl is now a photography legend in his own right.
Daryl has lectured at the prestigious internationally acclaimed North American Nature Photographers Association (NANPA) annual summit. He has also authored his own photographic online courses at WildLifeCampus.
Spending almost 10 months a year in the field taking photographs and hosting safaris for royalty, presidents, celebrities and other international photographers and film makers, they are continually adding to their repertoire of coffee-table books.
Years of amazing experiences like being trampled by one of Kruger Park's biggest elephants are forever captured in his photographs. He has been all over Africa taking photographs every step of the way. He has photographed conservation tigers bred and raised in the Karoo, Polar Bears in the Arctic, the great migrations across African plains and many, many more incredible wildlife awes.
