In the latest issue of Outdoor Photography magazine you can read an article I wrote for their Moment with Nature section. I chose a very powerful image from a rescue mission I was part of in Northern Sumatra, Indonesia.
Using my camera I try and show not only the beauty of the natural world but also the suffering within that world. My hope is to give all those species a true and meaningful voice around the world with my photographs.
The Prints for Nature fine art photography sale includes some stunning photographs by more than eighty nature photographers from all around the world.
I’m very pleased to announce that my image of a wild female Sumatran Orangutan waking from her overnight nest as the morning sun breaks through the dense rainforest canopy has been chosen as one of the images for sale.
The New Big 5 project is an international initiative to create a new big 5 of wildlife. The Big 5 of photography is supported by many of the world’s leading photographers, conservationists and wildlife lovers, working with international wildlife charities and organisations.
From the beginning as a wildlife photographer I’ve photographed the beauty of the natural world and also the not so beautiful things I see. Producing thought provoking images to try and bring an awareness to the public of what is happening to the natural world on our watch. It’s very important to me to show the full story not just the nice side.
Fascinating news released today from Sumatra, a new Great Ape Species has been discovered on the Indonesia island of Sumatra named – The Tapanuli Orangutan Pongo tapanuliensis. A team of Indonesian and international scientists have demonstrated that the Tapanuli orangutan, Pongo tapanuliensis, is genetically and morphologically distinct from both Bornean (Pongo pygmaeus) and Sumatran orangutans (Pongo abelii), and is therefore a separate species.
In February’s issue of the BBC Wildlife Magazine I have an article published on Sumatran Orangutans. The article and images are about the Sumatran Orangutans and their plight and I hope that this amazing magazine and its following helps these great apes and those fighting to keep them alive. Ive had the pleasure of joining these guys many times over the years and this is a great tribute to them all.
