Jay Roode

Based in Johannesburg South Africa, Jan and Jay Roode are passionate aviators, photographers and conservationists.

Having collectively travelled to over 56 countries this couple are modern day nomads and seem content only when free to wander the skies in their Jabiru 430 or explore life on the ground in their trusty Landcruiser.

Inspired by the adventure of life and with a deep reverence for freedom and spirit they try to capture images that invoke an emotional and spiritual response to the wonders of this world.

The animals and landscapes of Africa have always held a deep fascination for them and with this fascination has come a heartfelt desire to show how many parts of Africa are under dire threat. Their photos not only document a vanishing world but hope to inspire people to get involved in conserving this miraculous and astounding natural world that we live in.
