“It is such a privilege to have been selected as winner for the junior category for this months PSSA competition! I really am Thrilled.

I am 19 years old and matriculated last year at St John’s College in Johannesburg. I am currently on a gap year and have been teaching and doing a huge amount of photography. My grandparents got me into photography when I was 6 years old and I got my first DSLR when I was 10. From then on I have done as much photography as I could ranging from all the first team sports at school to wildlife photography and my passion – bird photography.

I was in Kenya for a week during the great migration where I took this photo. I have been asked and it is definitely not a composite. In the Maasai Mara it is very much open plains with single trees dotted around. This photo was taken directly after a 3 hour wait for the crossing of around 1000 wildebeest. They proceeded thereafter to graze on the opposite plains under a beautiful cloudy sky which is always present in the Mara. “
