Cheetahs at heart :-) - As I was driving to my first photography lesson this morning I passed Thanda Safaris' two Cheetah boys lounging in a heart formation :-) @thandasafari @christiansperkaphotography #onsafari #iPhone6+

EYES!

It has been years since I have created my EYES series of carnivore portraits. I love the strong expressions, especially in the feline eyes, when the color is removed from the rest of the images.

I am currently working on a new selection and this is one of my favorites so far.

Enjoy this Lion King, King of Lions!

ART PROJECT THANDA - SOUTH AFRICA 2016 - A STAR FOR LIFE PROJECT

For the complete blog message with many more images go to https://sperka.info/2016/11/07/art-project-thanda-south-africa-2016/

An inspiring week!
An exhausting week!
An interesting week!
An unforgettable week!

Since I have arrived in South Africa four-and-a-half years ago I spent my time exploring and photographing the bush and its wild animals, I was guiding and teaching many Thanda guests about the environment and about photography, I have developed websites and worked on social media. Non of that had prepared me for the last week.

Twenty well known artists from the Americas and Europe stayed at Thanda Safari to create art work to benefit the Star For Life organization (http://www.starforlife.org/). I was part of the team to host these creative guests. I spent my week responding to their needs and request, I set up a photo studio in the middle of the bush, I helped the photographers among them to get the right setups and I spent many hours photographing Colette Lumiere, a multimedia artist from New York, in her various installations. And I took pictures during the event which will become part of a book about the project. What an experience! I will never forget it.

All the work created will be auctioned at the end of next year at Stockholms Auktionsverk (http://artprojectthanda.com) to benefit Star For Life.

These are a few pictures from this very special week! Enjoy them!

Not only the Big Five make for great photo models!

For more images go to https://sperka.info/2016/10/11/not-the-five/

During my recent stay at Pakamisa (www.pakamisa.com) I spent some time with what is called general game. I really enjoyed taking these pictures of Giraffes, Wildebeest (Gnu), Warthogs, Nyalas, Impalas, Kudus and Zebras. I hope you will enjoy them as well.

My view on heritage: Learn from the past and help the children to build a better future!

The perfect look!

Many of you probably wondered why I was posting so little over the last few weeks. I was extremely busy at work and I had not much time to prepare posts. On the other hand I have collected a lot of material for future posts :-)

Today I thought I share two of my recent Lion portraits with you. Sometimes it is not the photographer who gets it right, sometimes it is the model! Both of these cats got the perfect look!

Enjoy your weekend.

Eat in the Ear!

Well done!

Many of my blog readers identified this correctly. Yesterday's blog picture (http://buff.ly/2b7h4zr) shows a Red-billed Oxpecker looking for ticks inside a White Rhinos ear :-)

Have a good weekend :-)
