Elliott Neep | Wildlife Photographer

Welcome to ElliottNeep.com. I am a freelance wildlife photographer, established in 2005. I travel to wild lands and aim my lens at astounding creatures and breath-taking scenes. The nature of wildlife is unpredictable and this in itself produces an addictive sense of anticipation. Just like your mouth drools before the feast, so my heart races when ever I take that morning drive out onto the savannah, or through the gates into a tiger reserve. Great wildlife imagery sparks emotions, delight, and wonder. As it should. It’s a window into another world that (unfortunately) the vast majority will never see with their own eyes. Enjoy the photographs and articles. I am only a phone call or email away, should you wish to discuss licensing or purchasing a print.
