Name’s Scotch Macaskill (it’s a nickname – real name Andrew) and I live in Pietermaritzburg, near Durban, South Africa.

Although I originally studied law, a few years of practice as an attorney convinced me that law was not for me so I bailed out and opted for photojournalism. More study, this time a three-year photography diploma.

I subsequently worked on newspapers and magazines in South Africa and Australia as a photojournalist and sub-editor, tried my hand as a commercial photographer, and published a monthly newsletter, SA Newslink, for South Africans living abroad (scuttled by the Internet). Next I spent about 10 years working for a small company that manufactures safari clothing.

My interest in wildlife photography has developed in tandem with travels to some of southern Africa’s great parks and nature reserves. Most my wildlife photos have been taken in South Africa (Kruger National Park and parks of KwaZulu-Natal), Botswana (Tuli Block, Chobe, Moremi), and Zambia (Lower Zambezi).
