Paly is an award-winning, nationally exhibited nature & wildlife photographer and artist. Paly studied Wildlife Conservation and Management, trained as a Game Ranger & Field Guide in his birth country of South Africa and certified as a Coral Reef Biology Science Instructor and as a Master Scuba Diver. Paly often spends time in remote areas seeking inspiration for his art. In 2008, he became the first man to solo-canoe the 300-mile length of the Lower Colorado River. Paly's art is seen by millions of people every year and can be found in the private collections of nature art enthusiasts around the world.


I love to capture and share my love of nature through my closely observed, impressionistic painting technique and through the lens of my camera. Nature is my inspiration and my meditation; Protecting her, is my mission.
