Wantok Photography was established in May 2017 in Honiara, Solomon Islands. “Wantok” is a Melanesian pidgin word derived from the English “one talk”. In the local culture, it refers to close friendship based on a common language. In a world that is increasingly inter-connected, we feel photography is the universal language, our wantok.
I became interested in photography slowly, first learning about underwater photography techniques and gradually working in nature, wildlife and travel photography. I established Wantok Photography to promote environmental conservation and help preserve the beauty of our natural capital from the challenges of climate change and human activity. This is a non-profit effort; any proceeds will be directed to selected charities working for this cause.
