Jaco Marx speaks about his passion – wildlife photography

Jaco Marx is a popular surgeon, but in his spare time, he gets involved into photography to bring awareness for wildlife conservation. While speaking to a leading website, he told that since childhood, he was horrified by canned lion hunting, poaching and whaling.
He said to himself – what difference he could make in a place where people slaughter for some money, where rhinos are senselessly killed for their horns and elephants are killed for ivory. Later he thought that he could matter for that one rhino or elephant. Then he started to take photography seriously.
Jaco now strains to influence the way people think regarding wildlife. He sees photography as a great tool for conservation. Photography competitions could be a real great deal, but that is not his target with photography. To see one of her prints on a stranger’s wall means one more person caring for the wild beasts.
Mr Marx is now based in South Africa. He gets inspiration from the continent’s wilderness – the very same place on which where he was born. He tells that photography gets you to several places — unspoiled deserts, wilderness, swamps and in between huge herds of animals to get the adrenaline running. Sounds of eagles in the distance, African fish, hippos sounding in riverbed, roars of lions across the bend, hyenas laughing — they are the things that they could get the opportunity to appreciate as wildlife photographers.
