About

Robert J. Ross is a native New Yorker who has spent the past fifteen years capturing colorful moments in Africa and elsewhere around the world after wisely leaving a career in property finance and development.  Rob’s work has been published in National Geographic Adventure, National Geographic Traveler, Conde Nast Traveler, Getaway Magazine, Africa Geographic, Islands, Travel Africa, GQ, House & Garden, and in many other leading travel and environmental journals.  Rob has also undertaken photographic assignments for the Wildlife Conservation Society, the World Wide Fund for Nature and the Global Fund for Children.  Rob has spent most of the past six years working on his first book which has just been published.  The Selous in Africa – A Long Way From Anywhere,  a comprehensive look at the Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania, is the result of those efforts.  Rob now divides his time between home bases in the mountains of Colorado and at the southern tip of his beloved Africa in Cape Town.
