Ranger Profile: Kyle Strautmann
My name is Kyle Strautmann and I am part of the Sabi Sabi Social Media Team. I have been with Sabi Sabi for a few years now and am loving every second of it. Working in the bush every day creates some amazing opportunities as a guide and photographer. Even though having only been into photography for a short period of time during my guiding career, it has definitely grown into a huge hobby for me.
The sheer quantity of animals and quality of the opportunities we get to see and experience on a daily basis are what have grown a focus for me on the smaller details of these animals and created my particular "styles" so to speak. I really enjoy capturing animal interactions, you never quite know what is going to happen and sometimes it's just a quick, brief moment before it is all over. The other focus I have is a very difficult subject to capture and that is birds, especially birds in flight. For me there is a great drive to achieve that “perfect shot” and thus I do not ever stop trying.
