ABOUT MARK DUMBLETON

Driven by a passion to capture unique moments, fleeting light, breathtaking landscapes and fulfilling the desire to explore the wilderness areas of Africa, I endeavour to evoke an emotion through my photography and portray the essence of a beautiful continent I call home. Born with an appreciation for the outdoors, I thrive on photographic exploration in search of unique photographic perspectives. I am a landscape and wildlife photographer from Johannesburg in South Africa. My photography includes imagery from mainly southern Africa but also from the Masai Mara in Kenya. My main photographic focus is on landscapes, but I do spend a great deal of time photographing wildlife. View my portfolio of wilderness photographs here.
