Roger & Pat De La Harpe
Roger and Pat make frequent excursions into various regions of Africa in pursuit of great stories and imagery, some of which have featured in local and international publications. Together they have published 27 coffee table books, many of which are a celebration of nature and the environment.
As part of their commitment to using their photographic and writing skills to greater affect, two of their latest books – In Search of the African Wild Dog and In Search of the African Lion – have a strong conservation emphasis. They 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. Their most recent book, African Icons, a limited collector’s edition, was published in 2015 and has sold out.
They also own and manage Africa Imagery, a niche image bank of the people, wildlife and landscapes of the African continent, and also undertake commissioned photography in the tourism sector – both stills and movies – and offer advice on, and sales of photographic equipment.
