About

African Wildlife Photos is a unique and comprehensive library of wildlife images for use by publishers and academics.

It is largely a single collection that represents the life work of the late John Visser.  The collection was built over more than 40 years and is one of the largest bodies of work of its kind.

Many of the species represented in the image collection cannot be found elsewhere, and finding them is a snap using an exhaustive keyword index that includes common and scientific names.

All of the images in the collection are high resolution scans of original positive transparencies (slides).  In order to preserve the authenticity of each original image, no image processing has been applied.  This means that often the images will have handling marks and surface scratches.    Most professional graphic designers prefer to receive an untreated raw image on which to apply their own treatment.   Please contact us if you would prefer that we treat the image for you.
