Roger and Pat de la Harpe Photography
We are freelance photographers and writers based in South Africa and share a passion for conservation, natural history, wild places and indigenous cultures. We make frequent excursions into various regions of Africa in pursuit of great stories and imagery and our work has featured in numerous local and international publications. We have published 27 coffee table books, many of which are a celebration of nature and the environment. As part of our commitment to using our photographic and writing skills to greater affect, two of our latest books – In Search of the African Wild Dog and In Search of the African Lion – have a strong conservation emphasis. We hope, in this way, to increase public awareness of these two species and their current predicament and to highlight the urgent need to find sustainable solutions to the various issues surrounding them. Our most recent book, African Icons, was published in 2015 and we think it is fabulous.
We own and manage Africa Imagery, a niche image bank of the people, wildlife and landscapes of the African continent. We also undertake commissioned photography in the tourism sector – both stills and movies - and offer advice on, and sales of photographic equipment.
