Early Dec 2007 saw the release of a new wildlife book titled “Australian Journey – Wildlife”, of which I am co-author with two other professional nature photographers, Andrew Teakle and Debra Doenges. This book is primarily a coffee table-style book, showcasing Australia’s unique and beautiful wildlife. The book is in hardcover, 128 pages and published by New Holland. It is one part of a four-part nature and landscape series, titled “Australian Journey” and is available in many bookshops throughout Australia.
The Queensland Wildlife Artist’s Society Incorporated (QWASI) chose me as their featured nature photographer for their biennial “International Wildlife” exhibition. This exhibition was held at the Logan Art Gallery from the 26th of November 2007 until the 5th of January 2008. I displayed six of my favourite wildlife photos, alongside the works of some of Australia’s best wildlife artists.
In the second week of December, I travelled to Bundjalung National Park in northern New South Wales with my friend Andrew Teakle, co-author of “Australian Journey – Wildlife” for three days of photography. We camped right near the beach and arose before sunrise each morning, in readiness for some landscape photography at Black Rocks and surrounding areas. This area is stunningly beautiful and well worth visiting.
I have been asked by Wildlife Australia Magazine to be their regular wildlife photography columnist . My first one was printed in the summer 2007 issue, featuring my photo of an Eastern Pygmy Possum. Each issue focuses on one particular photo and how I went about taking this photo.
The December 2007 issue of Australian Photography magazine published my article on how to photograph Australian mammals, titled “Furry Encounters” as one of their feature articles. It is on page 38 and is the fourth feature I have written for this magazine in the past 2 years.
