Hello everyone and thanks for accepting my request to join the forum.

I am Tyrone Ping, I work for the African Snakebite Institute here in South Africa alongside renowned herpetologist Johan Marais.

I am an avid field herping here in South Africa but travel extensively across Southern Africa photographing reptiles with a specific interest in Chameleons and Bradypodion.

A few photographs as an introduction for you:

Photographing Bitis atropos - Berg Adder. Near Swaziland

Photograghing Naja melanoleuca-Forest Cobra in Zululand, South Africa.
