Assignment for Diani House

Lately I’ve been working on an assignment taking photos of Diani House. It’s a beautiful house located next to the beach, surrounded by indigenous trees and quite a bit of wildlife.
Photographing this beautiful plot is a task that I’m still working on, but I figured I could share some of the work I’ve done so far with you.

A day in the Shimba Hills National Reserve

Yesterday I spent the day photographing in Shimba Hills National Reserve, based a bit inland from the south coast of Kenya.
This is a park I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting before, and based upon what I’ve heard from others I wasn’t expecting too much wildlife wise.
The park surprised me in a positive way though, as it didn’t take long before we had seen both Masai Giraffes, Cape Buffalos and Sable antelopes.
Later in the day we also had good sightings of elephants.

Shimba Hills is the only place in Kenya where the Sable antelope can be seen, and the reserve also holds substantial numbers of African elephants.
The elephants that are found there are of the African Forest Elephant subspecies, different from the more well known African Bush Elephant.

My photo featured as AFRICANatures cover photo

Earlier this week AFRICANature chose my Masai Mara sunset photo for their weekly Facebook cover photo!

I’ve followed AFRICANature for quite a while, so it was truly an honour that they chose my photo as the best of the week for their cover photo.

I shot this photo on the 17th of September last year, just minutes after spotting a beautiful rhino. The sun was already starting to set beautifully, so when the rhino wandered off we set off to the beautiful savannah nearby and started waiting for the sun to set. And what a great sight it was!

Feel free to check out AFRICANature and the photo at:

Welcome to Marie Lee Photography!

Photography for me is watching this worlds beauty and stories and making it possible for other people to see what I see. It’s getting to know something new through the lens – peoples personal stories, learning about the way animals live in the wild, or simply showing how beautiful our Earth is.
