Graham Hobart was born and raised in what is now Zimbabwe. He is famous for the unique illustrative style of photography he has titled “In a Different Light”. His work has been featured by National Geographic and Nikon USA.
As a young man, he would often travel by bicycle to remote parts of Africa and encounter a wide variety of wildlife very close-up. He would be gone for weeks at a time exploring as far as his legs, and determination, would take him. Before he was photographing the wildlife he was drawing and sculpting them.
“One time I rode my bicycle up to the main gate of Hwange National Park”, Graham recalls, “where wide-eyed park rangers explained that I was not permitted to enter the park by bicycle……because I might be eaten!”
Graham Hobart draws on more than twenty five years of experience as a professional photographer. He learned his craft on large format film cameras long before the days of digital photography. More recently he has turned his attention to the superb qualities of Infrared Photography which has challenges that few photographers dare to master because of difficulties with focusing….especially with super-telephoto lenses.
“I have been very fortunate to have been able to spend my adult life capturing the most amazing places, people and things. Being a professional photographer has been my passport to worlds I could never have experienced otherwise.”
