I love Africa. I love its people, its wild places and its wildlife. I love being immersed in these places, observing and photographing the fall of light on the land and the daily lives of the creatures that call it home, and presenting the results to whoever will take a look.

Colour is an essential part of photography, and it certainly has been a big part of the digital photography revolution. For wildlife and landscape photographers, colour is often essential to identifying specific animals or locations, to conveying the particular light and weather conditions and ambience at the moment of tripping the shutter. But colour can also be overdone, over-emphasised, and overly confusing. There are times when a nature photographer has to strip away the colours to get to the bare essential of the visual story that is there to be told. In this talk, award-winning wildlife photographer Morkel Erasmus will delve into what makes for a compelling monochrome presentation of our iconic African wildlife.
