Margot Raggett

Margot Raggett focuses primarily on photographing wildlife. She bought her first DSLR camera in 2010 for a safari to the Maasai Mara in Kenya and fell in love with both the place and with 'making' images. Subsequently she spent many months in Africa and her work has been regularly published worldwide. In 2015 she won the 'Animal Antics' category of the prestigious Nature's Best Photography Awards and was also awarded a highly commended in the 'African Wildlife' category of the same contest.

She loves wildlife, people and landscapes and when not travelling she splits her time between London and Kefalonia in Greece. For several years she was a regular 'Photographer in Residence' at Entim Camp in the Maasai Mara but all of that changed when she saw a poached elephant in northern Kenya at the end of 2014.
 
In 2015 Margot founded the Remembering Wildlife project, a 'live-aid' moment for wildlife photographers coming together for a fund-raising book first on elephants entitled Remembering Elephants. This was followed by Remembering Rhinos and in October 2018, Remembering Great Apes was published. She has partnered with the Born Free Foundation on all three books, which so far have raised more than £440,000 for conservation projects in Africa and Asia. The project has now become her full time vocation.
