First Place Wildlife: Mark Knott - We left Rattray’s Camp before dawn, intending to have our morning Amarula coffee while viewing the sunrise from the top of a kopje. Shortly after leaving camp we came across 2 of the dominant male lions of the area.Second Place Wildlife: Michael Maloon - We were fortunate to see several leopards during our time at the Mashatu Game Reserve including this female standing on a tree trunk. Leopards are solitary and typically come together to mate.Third Place Wildlife: Helen Reinhardt - We watched these two male hippos fight for over an hour. One was the resident ruler of the pond. The second one was an intruder male looking to take over another’s territory. Okavango Delta, Botswana.
First Place Wildlife Babies: Eric Gurwin -To be able to spend any amount of time with such small leopard cubs was something I’d always hoped to be able to do and that moment finally arrived. We were so fortunate! MalaMala, South Africa.Second Place Wildlife Babies: JP Norvell - Newborn gorillas weigh around 1.8 kg and are helpless and dependent. They travel places clinging on the backs of their mothers until they are 4 years old. Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda.Third Place Wildlife Babies: Stuart Hahn - We were fortunate to have a mother baboon come to the water hole with her baby clinging to her chest. The baby tried to drink but was not quite able to reach the water. Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana.
First Place Scenery: Bill Harker - An iconic image on safari while in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park with clear views of Mount Kilimanjaro, framed by a lone bull elephant.Second Place Scenery: Terry Gray - Every morning I insisted that our guide Brooks find an amazing sunrise for me to photograph. On our very last morning in Africa, he outdid himself! The most unique sunrise I will ever see.Third Place Scenery: Laura Eberly - Sunset at Camp Jabulani, South Africa. The sunset, the elephant herd and the experience are truly life changing events. The elephants will teach us so much, if we just take time to watch, learn and listen.
First Place Clients on Safari: Stanley's Camp resident female elephant ‘Marula’ greeting Graeme and Celia Nye the elephant way. The most lasting impression you'll get - not to mention a running nose all over your hair.Second Place Clients on Safari: James Rogers, age 9, uses his photographic skills to capture the magic of Victoria Falls during his first safari to Botswana and Zimbabwe.Third Place Clients on Safari: The multi-generational Shirley Klein family bid farewell to the friendly staff at the Serengeti Explorer Camp.
First Place People of Africa: Jeremy Hearne - One of the most fascinating adventures on the Namibia safari was visiting the Himba tribe. We spent over an hour with them and I was able to get this portrait of a teen girl at the village.Second Place People of Africa: David Gulliver - We saw this boy and his friend traveling near the entrance to Tarangire National Park. While our guide talked to them, we took some photos with them, but I like this un-posed one the best.Third Place People of Africa: Lauren Zimmerman - With help from many of my coworkers, we were able to donate some much needed school supplies to the students of Matanya Primary School. It's amazing how much joy a simple pencil can bring. Ol Pejeta, Kenya.
First Place Birds: Terry Gray - A pair of my favorite African birds, lilac-breasted rollers, posed perfectly and patiently for their photo during a game drive in Sabi Sand during our stay at Kirkman’s Kamp.Second Place Birds: Homin Lim - We spotted this malachite kingfisher during our trip to Lake Awassa in Ethiopia. They use reeds as a form of a perch to spot its prey, which includes fish, insects and crustaceans.Third Place Birds: Stuart Hahn - It was nice to capture two carmine bee-eaters together. Photographing one with a captured insect really makes the photo special. Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe.
Portfolio Winner: Mark Knott - One morning as we went out we found a dense fog covering the riverine area of MalaMala. As the sun rose the fog began clearing providing a beautiful misty sunrise scene, enhanced by the lone zebra.Portfolio Winner: Eric Gurwin - There were a pair of bull elephants picking up water with their trunks and spraying themselves and the air. Using a Nikon D5 at 10fps and a shutter speed of 1/1250s I was able to get the image.Portfolio Winner: Chris Swindal - We were lucky to find the Tsaro pride before sunrise. Just as the sun edged over the horizon, the two lionesses stood up, moved into the open and sat down atop a small hill to watch the sunrise.
