I am a Kiwi-born photographer, content creator and media adviser with a passion for wildlife and conservation. My friends call me Jungle Jane or JJ. 

In 2016,  I left my high profile, corporate career in luxury fashion PR in London to pursue my love for wildlife photography and Africa (you can read my story here).

It was one of the most transformational decisions I have ever made.

After studying photography at night school, working with a life coach and attending workshops, I moved to Kenya where I set up my own communications and content consultancy, Jungle Jane Communications.

My clients include Save the Elephants, Elephants & Bees, The Pangolin Project, the Elephant Crisis Fund, Dundas Safaris and others. I have photographed elephants and anti-poaching operations for projects in Zambia and Malawi, and photographed Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda, as well as hyena and cheetah in Namibia. 

I am fortunate to spend most of my time in the field in Samburu National Reserve, northern Kenya, photographing and filming wild African elephants and other wildlife. 

My photos, films and written stories have been published worldwide and my images transformed into an NFT and exhibited at the Humboldt Museum (Berlin) and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (Washington).  

You could say my dreams have come true.

I hope you enjoy my view of the world and are inspired enough by my story to follow your own heart and chase your dreams.

Thanks to my talented friend, Wynter Blathwyt at Gyroscope, for the website and the logo which represents my love of surfing, photography, horse riding and elephants.
