Through my lens, I strive to capture the essence of each moment, to reveal unique stories charged with emotion and aesthetics. Every image I create is a visual immersion, every video a visceral narrative. My work goes beyond convention, creating a visual gallery rich in color, texture and emotion.

My experience as a safari guide has given me a different approach to these journeys and to the environment in which I evolve. This has enabled me to capture special moments and create visuals that transcend the ordinary. Some of my shots have been recognized for their vision, technique and commitment to telling authentic stories through the lens.


Find on this press page my latest exciting collaborations, papers or blog articles that have been written about the Safari Guide, awards and upcoming projects.


Whether you're a journalist, editor or simply passionate about images and/or Africa, I invite you to dive into my world, where every image tells an unforgettable story.

Deep in the rocky hills of the Kenyan highlands lives a creature that is unique in its beauty, but above all in its rarity. Only a dozen or so individuals have been identified in this region. It melts into the darkness like a ghost in the shadow of a thick bush before pouncing on its prey. This will undoubtedly be Valentin Lavis's most beautiful animal encounter: the black leopard with Sony Alpha.
