MC: How did you be­come in­volved with the Rangers for Rhi­nos cal­en­dar project? Nicky Monro from Nat­u­ral Causes (a company that turns byprod­ucts of con­ser­va­tion, like car­casses and skulls, into works of art) con­tacted me and asked if

I would be the pho­tog­ra­pher for the cal­en­dar and I jumped at the op­por­tu­nity. I love the idea of do­ing some­thing for a cause. I don’t have money to give, but I do have time.

MC: What are your hopes for the project? I hope that it keeps the ball rolling on the plight of the rhino and the needs and wants of the rangers in huge prob­lem.

MC: Can you de­scribe the cre­ative process? We would set up the shots with the rangers wear­ing tow­els or sarongs, and then get the rangers to drop them – some­one would run to col­lect the tow­els – and we’d snap the shots.

MC: What is your next project? I run an NGO in Hout Bay called Chic Ma­mas Do Care that sup­ports ed­u­ca­tion and build­ing bridges be­tween com­mu­ni­ties through sus­tain­able fundrais­ing and vol­un­teerism. I am also help­ing to raise funds for a wilder­ness school in Joburg called La­palala. I like to keep busy. The Rangers for Rhi­nos cal­en­dar (R150) is avail­able from Nat­u­ral­causes.co.za
