This photograph was taken in northern Kenya. This little one may have been too young to herd his family's camels on his own - but that didn't stop him from trying...neither did it stop him from posing 'like a boss' even as he was dwarfed by these two huge camels!

I'm based in Singapore, a medical doctor by training; photography and my day job at Singapore's Health Promotion Board keep me happy in equal measure. I love travelling - especially to off-the-grid places, where the wifi is weak.
