Richard du Toit, author and photographer, spent ten years in the wilderness areas of Southern Africa where he has captured a wealth of images that detail the diverse and rich tapestry of nature. A selection of Du Toit's best images is showcased here, grouped in seven distinct themes: up close; in action; going solo; pairs; families; neighbours and moods. Only photographs not previously featured in books have been chosen. This is nature as it is - wild and free.
Richard du Toit specialises in photographing wild animals and plants in their natural environments. A qualified zoologist and entomologist, he works as a freelance photographer, travelling throughout southern Africa in search of images. He has been widely published internationally, produced the photographs for Creatures of Habit, and was co-photographer for Images from a Timeless Wilderness.
