We love how palpable Beverly’s passion for these creatures and the scenery is!
From Beverly Joubert’s website:
Beverly is an intuitive photographer rather than a technical one, a person who lives and breathes Africa and its wild open places filled with big cats and elephants, racing zebras or bubbling lava flows. National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, just one of 14 people selected to represent this level of professionalism in the Society, she has specialized in African photography for nearly 30 years, with images in a dozen or more National Geographic Magazines, in 10 books, and thousands of articles around the world.
Her passion for wildlife is endless. Perhaps for Beverly, the most prestigious and valued accolade is the Presidential Order of Merit given to her by the president of Botswana His Excellency Ian Khama, for work done for the enhancement of the reputation of Botswana via her images.
But Beverly’s eye for light and recognizing a unique moment in wildlife comes from quite simply doing the time in places she loves, with someone she loves and with a healthy blend of outrage against what is happening to these wild places and the precious animals she knows so well.
