Simon Eeman Photography
I am Simon Eeman and I’m originally from Belgium. I currently work as a guide on a reserve in South Africa. Since I was very young I have been traveling and visiting the world. One of the places that has always fascinated me is Africa.
It all started when I went on a safari through Kenya and Tanzania with my parents, visiting the famous Serengeti National Park and the Masai Mara. This is also the moment where I started to take my first pictures with an old camera my dad gave me.
Shortly after that I went to South Africa to volunteer on a wildlife reserve and then I knew I wanted to come back and started looking at the different possibilities to help me realise my dream. In July 2014 I was accepted at a guiding school, Bushwise, in South Africa and obtained my FGASA Level 1 qualifications. From there on I really started to discover what wildlife was.
Wildlife is something amazing that will keep surprising you over and over again. The way animals can adapt themselves to overcome difficulties to be able to survive or to get what they want will never cease to surprise me.
I’m fortunate enough to work as a guide in Africa and witness these moments almost on a daily basis. What is even more amazing is that each of these moments are unique, every time you will see these animals it will be different from the previous time.
Working in the bush is never boring, every day I will have the possibility to see an animal and I know it will be an exciting moment, even if I have seen that animal many times before. Photography is my passion and thanks to the pictures I take I’m able to share those unique moments with you. With the pictures I take I can show you how beautiful the African wildlife is and maybe even convince you to come and witness it for yourself!
