Ranger Profile: Ally Ross
Hi there my name is Ally Ross. I am part of one of the greatest safari and social media teams in the industry, Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve. While I was working in the city it dawned on me that I was delaying the inevitable. My passion lay with wildlife and it was time to pursue this new venture.
At the tender age of eight I had already told had desires to work in the bush as a guide. Little did anyone know that seventeen years later I would be living the dream. Photography was always just a hobby, until I chose guiding as a career. Being out in the bush on a daily basis provides ample opportunity to practice and hone my skills. What better way to learn and experiment with different subjects, lenses, camera setting etc. in one of the most incredible wildlife areas in Southern Africa.
The best part of this journey is that every day is a learning curve. Every time I get out into the bush, I make a concerted effort to try something different, something new and practice something I have not yet mastered. That is the beauty of the journey.
Behind every photo lies a story and a memorable experience hence the reason I thoroughly enjoy writing, especially blogging. I find great passion in sharing my stories and experiences with all who frequent Sabi Sabi as well as those who still plan to make my home a part of their journey.
