Daryl and his wife Sharna are acclaimed among Africa's leading wildlife photographers. Their work is so highly regarded internationally they were invited lecturers at the prestigious North American Nature Photographers' Association (NANPA) annual summit in 2001. Daryl has published extensively including a book on photographic techniques, he is author of a photographic course available from WildLifeCampus (www.wildlifecampus.com), and regularly publishes articles on photography in magazines. The Balfours spend more time photographing in the field than they do in their own home in Nelspruit, South Africa. Our files are continually being updated with new images.
Authors of books showcasing African wildlife
In addition, they currently have more than a dozen top-selling coffee-table books to their name, and are working on several more.
Lifetime in the African wilderness
Daryl himself has spent a lifetime in the African wilderness. His early years trod the footsteps of the famous conservationist Ian Player, researching rhinos in the same hills and valleys of Zululand that Player had done. His mentors have included leading conservationists across Africa as well as some of the last of the "Great White Hunters" " men such Harry Selby, Tony Henley and Lionel Palmer - legends in their own lifetimes.
Personalised African photo safaris
Daryl and Sharna Balfour spend as much of 10 months of each year in the field, either working on specialised projects of their own, or hosting small groups of enthusiasts on safaris across the length and breadth of Africa, and beyond. These personalised safaris are tailor-made according to the guests' individual requirements, with a specific emphasis on wildlife photography.
Daryl also leads customized, exclusive safaris into Africa. Over the past 25 years he has guided royalty, presidents, captains of industry, film stars, leading international photographer's and film-makers throughout Africa.
