  ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
MARTIN HEIGAN:
"I am a 3D VFX Supervisor working in the Film and Television visual effects and animation industry. Animation is not my only passion. South Africa is a beautiful country with an average of 320+ warm sunshine days a year. I try and spend as much time possible outdoors, and love photographing nature for inspiration.

I am especially interested in Nature photography, Macro photography, and Stapeliad desert flowers."
