April 2017 – Waterlife magazine cover

This image was taken several years ago in the days when Lake Nakuru, Kenya, hosted up to 1m Lesser Flamingos. A geological fault in 2012/2013 has resulted in the table water rising substantially which has reduced the alkaline/soda content of the water which in turn has reduced the concentration of algae on which the Flamingos feed.

October 2015 – Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards

I am thrilled to announce that two of my images have received highly honored awards in the 2015 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. Flamingo doodle was awarded in the Black & White category and Realm of the Flamingo was awarded in the From the Sky category. The award ceremony and dinner, in London’s Natural History museum, was beyond amazing. It was also fantastic to see some of my photographic friends and meet some of my photographic heroes at the event.

December 2011 – Wall Street Journal photos

In reviewing Michael Poliza’s lavish new photo book, “Kenya”, for which I contributed several images, the New Year’s Eve edition of the Wall Street Journal carries a large reprint of one of my images. It was taken in 2008 at the famed Cul-De-Sac river crossing point on the Mara River in the Masai Mara. The venue is thus named because often the herds of crossing Wildebeest choose the wrong crossing point, where there is, in fact, no exit point. Animals pile up on the steep banks, unable to reach the top; the banks become muddier and extremely slippery, often resulting in mass drownings as the animals exhaust themselves. To make matters worse for the Wildebeest, this particular bend in the river is home to large numbers of monstrous sized Nile Crocodiles.

July 2011 – Papua New Guinea stamp

One of my images has appeared on a Papua New Guinea stamp. Ironically the image was taken thousands of miles away in French Polynesia! Many thanks to Yvonne Sadovy for helping with this.

    Congratulations on all accounts. Your work is amazing, I enjoyed reading your bios, also the Antarctica blog which I found on Art’s blog. So thanks to him, who is now down south, super-lucky guy! I head to Galapagos in May (won Nat Geo photo contest) and still have to check out more of your images for inspiration. Your composition is stellar. No need to talk about lighting, etc. – all wonderful. Best to you in your pursuit of all things photographic, and Happy New Year!, from Long Island, New York.

      Thx June. Well done on the Nat Geo contest. You will love Galapagos. I have many fond memories of my one trip there in 2001 esp since I met my wife there. Best regards, Paul
