West African Portraits (2005 to 2012)

West African Portraits (2005 to 2012)

Since 2005 I have visited West Africa on numerous occasions, mainly The Gambia but also Senegal and the archipelago of Cape Verde. As well as running this blog and contributing to a number of other sites on a regular basis, I also work for the tour operator Serenity Holidays. Some of the following photographs were taken while on assignment for companies within the Serenity Holidays group and others were taken while visiting these amazing countries as an independent traveller.

The people of The Gambia, Senegal and Cape Verde have always made me very welcome, whether I am visiting on business or pleasure. I hope you enjoy the following collection of just some of the wonderful people I have met.
