Guy Yves Ellis is a businessman, conservationist and writer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. After graduating Cum Laude in accountancy and finance, Guy focused his attention to his two passions, being entrepreneurial investments and wildlife conservation.
His dedication to saving and documenting Africa’s most enigmatic predator, the leopard, led to him collecting data on over 150 leopards over the course of approximately 3 years. He then founded the Greater Kruger National Park & Southern African Leopard Identification Project. The project is now the largest central database for leopard intelligence of its kind in Africa.
This achievement attracted the interest of many conservation organisations in Southern Africa. Guy's main aim is for collaboration amongst conservationists in Africa. Guy now works in tandem with them to improve the database and the methods used in collecting the information. His work has also seen him elevated to the position of ambassador for many conservation initiatives, NGO's and does regular conservation awareness and fundraising seminars.
Guy's Photographic fine art prints are exclusive and unique. These limited prints are used to raise funds and promote awareness about the plight of Africa's wildlife. He also contributes generously to various conservation organisations and community initiatives.
Fine art collectors worldwide are seeing the value in Guy's work, seeking to be one of the fortunate few to own a piece of such significance. Proceeds of all Guy's limited edition fine art prints are in support of conservation.
