James Tyrrell

Photographic Guide/Media Team

James had hardly touched a camera when he came to Londolozi, but his writing skills that complemented his Honours degree in Zoology meant that he was quickly snapped up by the Londolozi blog team.

An environment rich in photographers helped him develop the photographic skills he needed to start capturing some great images, and 2015 saw him make the move from stills photography into film as well.

Going into semi-retirement on the guiding front in 2015 saw James settle into a far more permanent role in the Londolozi Creative Hub, joining Rich on the creative team and focusing his efforts on producing media content for the Londolozi online space.
