Award-winning photographer James Gifford has always been an avid traveller. It was the continent of Africa and its wildlife that captivated him from an early age, beckoning repeatedly until he could eventually call it home. He has spent the past decade living in Botswana on the edge of the world-famous Okavango Delta, photographing wildlife for editorial features, running specialist photographic safaris and conducting commercial photographic and video shoots for luxury safari lodges.
In 2016 James won the Photograph of the Year award in Nature's Best Photography Africa competition
