About Margot Raggett MBE

  • 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. She now shoots on a Nikon Z9 with a Nikkor 400 f/2.8, spends up to three months a year in Africa and her work is regularly published worldwide. In 2015 she won the 'Animal Antics' category of the prestigious Nature's Best Photography Awards. She 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.
  • Margot was a regular 'Photographer in Residence' at Entim Camp in the Maasai Mara and also leads photographic safaris to there and elsewhere in Kenya.
  • In 2015 she 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 seven more books covering rhinos, great apes, cheetahs, lions, African wild dogs, bears and in 2023 leopards, which so far have raised more than £1.1m for conservation projects in Africa, Asia and North and South America. Margot was awarded an MBE on the King's Birthday Honours List in June 2023 for services to international conservation.
