Peter Ribton

Peter is a Cape Town-based photographer and cameraman.

One of Peter's most recent projects took him to the banks of the Limpopo River in Botswana, where he followed a herd of elephants for two months for a BBC documentary called Live and Wild.

Peter resides in Noordhoek in Cape Town and spends his leisure time in the mountains with his dog, Kiska. Sundown is spent with Bianca on Long Beach taking in vast quantities of red wine.

Peter will be photographing and filming Mark’s remaining days at Star City, documenting the various tests and training he has to undergo prior to lift off. He will be in Baikonour for blast off and the landing.
