As a photographer based in Southern Africa, witnessing the Keel-billed Toucan for the first time was absolutely mind-blowing. The colours are something that simply does not exist in the areas I'm used to photographing.

What stood out to me as well was their very delicate head movements, as if the bird has an 'in-built gimbal' on its neck. There are no sudden movements, and it makes this bird even more mesmerising to observe.

The Keel-billed Toucan is a remarkable bird that is native to Central and South America. Its most distinctive feature is its large, multi-coloured bill, which is an impressive work of nature's art. The vibrant colours of its bill include yellow, orange, green, and blue, which give the bird a stunning and unique appearance.

Costa Rica is a beautiful country that offers a wide range of photographic opportunities. From stunning beaches to lush rainforests, there is no shortage of subjects to capture with your camera. The biodiversity of Costa Rica is something I’ve never witnessed before. It is home to a vast array of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, toucans, and other exotic animals. This makes it an excellent destination for nature photographers who want to capture images of unique and rare creatures.

Costa Rica is known for its commitment to environmental conservation, making it a great destination for eco-conscious photographers. Many of the country's parks and reserves are managed sustainably, and the locals are passionate about preserving their natural resources, providing excellent photographic opportunities.

Costa Rica is where I improved my photography immensely. It was where I first started with wildlife flash photography, which is great for making your subject stand out from its environment.

Secure delivery: Because the packages provided by the supplier are so protective, prints are rarely damaged. However, if a package does arrive damaged and the print is also damaged, you can contact me directly by email. You’ll need to photograph the package and the print and send the details to hello@carelsteenkamp.com along with your order number and tracking info.

Delivery time: Orders ship out within 24 hours of your purchase, but can take up to 15 days to arrive, so please have patience. I'm using the trusted service of theprintspace located in London, UK. They're incredible, but only offer Flat Rate Worldwide shipping, which is limited in terms of order tracking numbers. Keep in mind that I'm all alone in trying to manage the print store right now, but I promise, you will get your print!

Estimated Average Shipping Times. 

  • Europe: 3-5 Days
  • USA & Canada: 7-9 Days
  • Rest of the World: Up to 10 Days 

As a final request, please consider emailing me only after 15 days from the day you purchased. 

Exchanges & Returns:

Straight refunds are not accepted as these are limited edition prints, but I’m confident you’re going to love the print and cherish it forever. But if it isn’t what you expected, or it’s somehow damaged you can exchange it. Once the package is delivered, you’ll have 5-days to notify me via email at hello@carelsteenkamp.com if the print is either damaged or if you’d like to exchange it for another of equal value.

Shipping is free if the print is damaged, but if you want to exchange the print, you’ll need to cover the shipping costs, plus the difference in the cost of the prints. No discount will be given if the print you want to exchange is worth more than the one you wish to replace it with.

All images are to help estimate the size of the print. No prints arrive with frames. Refer to the Size Chart for more information about measurements.

Hahnemühle Photo Rag cotton paper with exceptional image presentation and museum-quality longevity.

Prints arrive ready for a standard store-bought frame, although custom framing is recommended for the Extra Large prints, as there is no border and the frame must fit perfectly.

Small = 100

Medium = 50

Large = 25

Extra Large = 10

All prints are limited edition. Once the edition sells out there is never going to be another printed. Ever.

The prices of the prints will never drop, however, I will be releasing discount codes every so often.

The prices of the Large and Extra Large size variants will increase in price as they get closer to being sold out. If you are interested in purchasing these sizes, make sure to buy them as soon as possible, because there is a chance that the price might increase tomorrow!

Secure payment: Card details are never stored and if using PayPal, I’ll never have access to any of your sensitive payment details. Everything is handled through Shopify and is fully encrypted.

Edition numbers: All prints are limited edition. Once the edition sells out there is never going to be another printed. Ever. At this time I can not accommodate special requests for specific edition numbers. Although it is a common practice when purchasing through galleries and exhibitions to ask for a specific edition number, the ordering system that I currently have in place does not allow for easy modifications after the order is placed online. For artwork that has a history of sales, you may receive a random. As such, if you order two prints of the same image, you might not get consecutive edition numbers. For example, you might get Edition 5 of 10 and 1 of 10 for the same image even though you order the prints at the same time and even if the print appears to be almost sold out online. 

Why don't you offer framed options? Great question! I feel it's important to share why I only offer print-only products. Unfortunately, it is really much more expensive to buy a frame with your print. Not only is the frame expensive, but shipping also increases drastically. It will be much cheaper to buy a standard store bought frame than pay an unnecessarily large amount for a frame on this site. Besides that, all my prices have been calculated to include free worldwide shipping, something that simply would not be possible if I had to sell frames as well. That all being said, if you do wish to order a frame with your print, feel free to contact me.

Conservation Photography

Giving back to the environment is what fuels my fire.

I want to help what made my profession a possibility in the first place.

Wildlife.

That's why I've decided to support the incredible non-profit organisation IFAW. They've been around for more than 50 years and are busy tackling some of the world's largest problems with creative solutions.

10% of the profits generated from my print store will be donated to IFAW.

When purchasing my prints, not only are you supporting me, but you are actively supporting wildlife.
