Hello, my name is Desiré – and I love spiders. I often think this would be such an interesting way to introduce myself when meeting people for the first time. Sure, it’s not the whole truth, but it is true! Another part of that truth is that I love nature, and I love macro photography.


I also love working as an editor, communications consultant and materials development specialist with my NGO clients, all environmental and social justice organisations. As Earth & Oceans, I specialise in designing, implementing and managing advocacy, communication and publishing strategies that support and drive behaviour change processes.


With a background in journalism, visual design and project management, I bring to all my work a deep understanding of the power of social marketing to inspire change, and a commitment to making the world a better place.


So why macro photography? Honestly … I’d need at least an hour to tell you all the reasons why the tiny eight-legged and six-legged creatures we share our home planet with are my passion and my joy. Or you could watch this Hunters of Light presentation.


Let’s connect if you too are fascinated by the microcosm within the macrocosm, and you want to learn more about macro photography … and about spiders and bugs 🙂
