About Artist

JULES OLDROYD

My wildlife journey began 20 years ago when I did my first safari in Tanzania & I was completely captivated seeing animals in the wild. On those first safaris I was using an advanced point & shoot, the photos weren’t great, but that wasn’t my focus on those early trips to Africa. My job was stressful & just being in the wild enabled me to completely unplug & be at one with nature & those endless African skies. Then in 2009 I decided to go on my first Photographic safari to improve my photography, bought my first Canon SLR & so began what will truly be a lifelong passion. More than that through all my photography trips I have made great friends, met the most amazing guides & mentors & have so many memories to treasure. Another defining moment was joining National Geographic in 2012. As a senior executive in the programming team part of my job was to lead the strategy for Nat Geo Wild internationally & curate the programming lineup for the yearly Big Cat stunt to help support Big Cat conservation. Working at National Geographic also meant that I was able to meet & spend time with some of the world’s best photographers, explorers & filmmakers, giving me another opportunity to learn & be inspired by their stories. Unfortunately, I was made redundant at the end of last year as part of a corporate restructure & returned to London from Washington DC earlier this year. However, as they say when “life gives you lemons make Lemonade” & having more time after over 30 years of working, has enabled me to have the focus on my photography, develop my portfolio, follow my passion & set up a business selling limited edition prints with a percentage going back to conservation charities.
