Greg du Toit
Signature Talk “Chase Your Dreams”
Chase Your Dreams is the incredible true story of international award winning African wildlife photographer, Greg du Toit, and details his personal undertaking to get the ultimate eye-level photograph of free-ranging lions drinking, at a waterhole in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley. This truly outstanding presentation is accompanied by spellbindingly beautiful visuals and offers audiences insight into the patience, passion, commitment and dedication that it takes for a wildlife photographer in the 21st century to capture groundbreaking imagery. The personable style of the presentation as well as the infectious story itself motivates and inspires on every level as the photographer details the 16 month project, including the 270 hours he spent actually sitting in the water - nearly loosing his life to lions and contracting numerous tropical illnesses. This story is one that shows how the impossible can be achieved through resourcefulness, focus, creativity, dogged determination, appreciation and above all else, patience. We invite you to partake in another man's 'against all odds' quest to accomplish the impossible and to find out how images that Greg captured in a remote corner of Maasai-land, lead to a sellout solo exhibition with the National Geographic Gallery in London and to a cover story for the Africa Geographic.
