Steve Farrimond is an amateur wildlife photographer, passionate about the conservation and protection of our planets endangered and vulnerable species. Inspired by my wife Deb who is a talented wildlife conservation artist, my original goal was to capture images that Deb could bring to life through her pastel, charcoal and scratchboard artworks. I feel at peace when immersed in nature, observing and capturing images of the beauty our planet has to offer.
Deb and I aim to evoke emotions, generate conversations, raise awareness and encourage others to consider how they can play a part in saving our planets wildlife. To that extent, we aim to travel and capture images across the globe, educating ourselves in relation to the issues facing various species and conservation groups in different regions.
In recent years, we have focused on Africa and Australia and aim to continue to visit different regions in these continents in the future. We also aim to commence visiting different continents during the next decade. As part of our conservation effort, a minimum of 50% for all sales of my photography is donated to foundations we support across the globe. If we can play a small role in raising awareness and encouraging others to consider how we conserve or save our planets wildlife, we will sleep well at night.
