Saving White Lion
Photography for me is about capturing the moment as well as an opportunity to listen and experience new wonderful things–it’s similar to meeting a new friend. I was honored to photographed the presentation “Saving the White Lions” given by Linda Tucker. During the session I was photographing and listening to the presentation about the Whilte Lion their role in the natural habitat, they unique DNA markup, and ways to save them. It was really moving to be part of the gathering–Ms.Tucker spoke with genuine passion and love that I just wanted to visit their preservation ground.
After this presentation I firmly believe our role is not to be a consumer but a stewart to the planet and its habbitats–after all it is our home.

I’ve worked with Jiho for several years, first at our previous “day job,” where we were colleagues. When I started the first of my own businesses a few years ago—Sprout Your Vision—I turned to Jiho for his help and expertise in setting up my website. I knew he had a keen eye and that he would be patient with me, a web noob (a term he taught me). While he didn’t agree with all of my initial ideas, he was patient and diplomatic at pointing out why some of my ideas were possibly not the “best” ideas, and he always gently pointed me in the right direction (and 99% of the time, he was right)! 🙂
Most recently, Jiho photographed a fundraising event I organized for the Global White Lion Protection Trust. His style was unobtrusive, and the photos turned out great–exactly what we needed to help raise awareness for the Global White Lion Trust that is working to save a nearly extinct species. He turned the work around quickly, and he was a true pleasure to work with.
