Photographes animaliers

Jamie THOM

Photographe Sud-Africain, Jamie Thom fait partie des photographes animaliers les plus primés au prestigieux concours BBC wildlife Photographer of the Year

Jamie Thom began his career as a mechanical engineer before turning to his passion for wildlife and photography. He took a post as a game ranger at MalaMala Game Reserve where he had the opportunity to shoot wildlife on a daily basis and after a few years had won a number of awards for his work. After 4 years of living in the game reserve he joined an American company filming and directing wildlife documentaries for National Geographic and Discovery Channel. He filmed a documentary on man-eating lions and then filmed and directed two movies, one on cheetah and another on man-killers, (large mammals that kill man).

Ultimately he turned back to his passion - photography and travel, and now owns and runs the CONSERVATION SAFARI COMPANY organizing safaris and tours to various parts of Africa.
