Shane Doyle completed his university studies in the natural sciences and then worked at Mala Mala game reserve, where he spent five years capturing images that slowly cultivated his own expression of photography. He has travelled extensively since then - firstly to Dubai (where he spent 2 years flying falcons and capturing the essence of desert life on film and experiencing a lifestyle quite different to South Africa), Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Mozambique, Lesotho, Swaziland, the west coast of the U.S.A, the Canadian Rockies as well as to Slovakia and Malaysia.

Upon his return to South Africa after Dubai, Shane spent time developing and marketing his own range of inspirational postcards throughout South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland. These are available at various outlets around the country.

He has also been applying his imagery to canvas, marketing this product through select game lodges as well as doing commissioned work. Mashatu private game reserve has recently upgraded their accommodation and has furnished their walls exclusively with Shane's imagery - the theme being local culture and wildlife. The medium has been a limited edition of signed black and white prints.

Shane's love for the outdoors has also led him into polo photography. He has assisted BMW South Africa in documenting their International Polo Series for the last four years. This has resulted in various commissioned projects including the decor of an exclusive polo clubhouse as well as an upmarket restaurant in the Natal Drakensberg area with large canvas images of wildlife, zulu portraits and polo imagery.

Weddings are another offering that Shane has in his quiver. His angle on weddings is unique. Firstly, he will see and take the photographs of those special moments that need to be captured on such an occasion. And secondly, his ability to able to maximise the energy that he puts into each wedding. This is due to the fact that he does not commit to more than 2 weddings per month. So book well in advance.

Shane's travels have followed his heart and his photography merely serves as an outlet for his expression. To visualise is merely an attitude toward photography, hence Shane's work is a total freedom of expression and is no way restricted by others ideas of the art.
