Main My Work Commercial Exhibitions Books Contacts
I have a large portfolio of my photographs on this web site in the "Exhibitions" area. There is an extensive section on my trip to Africa which is the subject of my book "Botswana and Beyond". Copies of the photographs are available for purchase in various sizes and formats to suit your decor.

You will be able to enjoy in your home or office the same beauty of the world and its creatures that I was able to capture on film.
In addition to my art photography, I do extensive commercial work - including portraits, Christmas cards, pets, events, and equestrian photos.

For businesses, I do photographs for web sites, brochures, advertising campaigns, and publications.
Botswana and Beyond
Botswana and Beyond   I embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to South Africa. This was a dream come true for me since I have been working with animals all my life. I sincerely hope that my story and my photographs will make you feel that you are living this experience with me and are right there beside me in the bush with these wild animals, enjoying the adventure that I have experienced.
No words could define the sense of awe and danger which I felt while photographing these magnificent creatures.

This story was purposely written in a light, humorous mode even though, at times, I wondered if we were going to get back to our camp without incident. The photographs alone are invaluable and express the moods of these wonderful animals as they pursue survival in this vast land. I hope you enjoy reading this adventure as much as I have enjoyed living it.

"Botswana and Beyond" is available for purchase on or by contacting this web site. If purchased directly from Wld Eyes Photography it costs $20 and half is donated to Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida.
What I do
Marcella Mirande-Ketcham I have been a freelance photographer for the past 10 years. My specialties include: equestrian, children, wild and domestic animals, exotic and classic cars, and race cars.
My studio
Since I am a freelance photographer, my studio is anywhere my subject is located. I can always be found with the animals at their home, whether it be a private home, or a sanctuary for unwanted, abandoned or abused big cats. It's the best place to have a studio because it is ever changing and different, and never the same scenery, atmosphere, or weather.

Marcella Mirande-Ketcham
My first love, of course, is animals of all kinds - wild and domestic. I have worked with big cat animal rescue sanctuaries and my unconditional love of all animals significantly shows through in my photographs.

The animals relate to me so well that you can see in their eyes that they are telling me a story about themselves, especially the abused and abandoned ones. I try to capture their beautiful faces with their own expressions even though some are sad. They may not be able to speak, but the look in their eyes and on their faces is worth a million words and I try to capture that look in my photographs.

I have also photographed other subjects such as Blue Angels, stunt planes, auto racing, polo, and more.
