Ranger Profile: Franscois Rosslee
My name is Franscois Rosslee and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. I have been a Senior Ranger at Sabi Sabi for almost four years now. All through this journey I have had a keen interest in photography and have been doing photography for six years since my mom bought me my first camera which I use still to this day. I have always believed in capturing the most amazing moment and this is what I strive to do on a daily basis in this amazing place we call home.
My dream, since I was a young boy, has always been to work or live in an area that allows me to live out my dream, so this career sees me always grabbing a camera and capturing that awesome moment while we experience it with our guests. One of my favourite styles is trying to capture close up images of animals’ facial expressions. Thus, showing our guests what, why and when these animals make or break decisions that can change the course of their lives, just like the bush has changed the course of mine. My passion for the bush and photography is growing day by day and I am excited to be able to have people come and feed off this passion and excitement with me.
