William Steel


Raised in Botswana, he was able to explore and discover the beauty of untamed wilderness, and it sparked in him a love for nature. His early fascination with birdlife is where his photographic journey began. As a hobby blossomed into a passion, and then a career, he began to turn his focus to storytelling. William believes that great photography is a combination of beauty and intrigue, and he has always tried to focus on these aspects regardless of the subject he is photographing.


After finishing an MBA degree at 23, William decided that the corporate life was not for him, and he moved back to Botswana. His extensive knowledge of Botswana secured him a job in the filming industry, working on projects for industry giants such as the BBC and the National Geographic.


After years spent living out of filming vehicles, William realised that his real passion lay in sharing his love for photography, wildlife and travel. His inquisitive nature, natural urge to think deeper, and unbridled passion for the natural world is infectious. His desire has always been to help people harness their own photographic style, share incredible experiences, and discover the art in photography.


Williams’ unique style, and pursuit to create beauty in even the most common of species, has resulted in numerous local and international publications, as well as awards in world renowned competitions.
