WARNING - STOLEN WILDLIFE IMAGES.

It has been brought to my attention that a G+ user has stolen one of my bear images, flipped it and claimed it a her own, even applying her copyright message and saying how and where she supposedly captured it.

Please check her profile in case any of your images are there too.....

Her account name is Alby Scgweitzer

All the best, Chris

A leopard scanning intently from high in a tree, Savute Botswana.
With very low rainfalls this wet season the wildlife photo opportunities will be amazing on our this years photo tour with a huge concentration of animals sharing the scarce water.

Don't miss out on this once in a lifetime trip!

"Balloons over Waikato"  New Zealand

Please share if you enjoy :-)

It was a stunning morning yesterday in Hamilton with the dawn fog really adding to the scene. It was well worth the 4.30am start to drive down to Hamilton and photograph the spectacle.

"Pining for Alaska"

I can't wait to return!

The amazing scenery off the Dalton Highway as we approach the Arctic Circle. These trees are coated with layers of frost - not snow really are stunning!

Wai-O-Tapu, Rotorua, New Zealand.

Looking directly down on a submerged geyser in the "Artist's Palette" - which overflows from "Champagne Pool". Some of the visible stones are exposed but the geyser itself and the golds and blues are under clear hot water.

Taken from my drone :-)

A lone caribou on the ridge line high in the Brooks Range, Arctic Alaska.

I love the contrast between the sunny ridge and the shaded mountainside behind and the way it highlights the fog from it's breath.

The stunning Purakaunui Falls, Catlins, South Island, New Zealand.

I have fond memories of family time here when I was a child, with many an hour spent catching fresh water lobsters. I returned a few weeks back to find it was even more beautiful than I remembered and fantastic to see it still so pristine smile emoticon

"It's the small things..."

Feel free to share :-)

I created this image of a small section of stream on an early morning hike up to Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado early this year.

I love the mix of detail in the ice with the softness of moving water that this image brings. This little section of stream was only about 30-40 cm's high and everyone walked right by...

There is no such thing as a "bad" day in Milford Sound. 

When we arrived last week it was very windy with pouring rain - perfect photography weather ;-) 

There was a lot of large scale drama with the mountainsides becoming a huge mass of waterfalls, many which were dispersed by the wind long before they reached Milford Sound below.

A young boy in the very remote Kundiman village, Karawari River, Papua New Guinea, taken on my recent PNG Photo Tour.
For this image I used the new super compact Nikkor 300mm f4 lens. The longer focal length allowed me to achieve a shallow depth of field simplifying my background.

"Erotica" - no really... that is her name!

Black Water Lakes, Papua New Guinea.

Erotica seen here smoking tobacco in her pipe - they have been known to smoke other things too...

A bit off the subject but interesting - it is also a very common practice in PNG to feed marijuana to the pigs - it gives them the munchies, they eat more and grow big faster. Makes good sense given that pigs are the prime form of currency in most remote areas :-)

Meet Timi... Papua New Guinea.

I had previously shot with Timi back in 2010 and he kindly came in to spend some time with our photo tour group, both in this "lit" situation as well as out on the river. 

Although he lives in the Karawari region now Timi proudly displays his scarification which is traditional to the Kabriman tribe of the Black Water Lakes region. 

The "slicing" process was originally done with bamboo knives but they now use a razor blade. The work symbolises crocodile skin and is performed as the boys reach manhood. Timis' chest, shoulders, arms, back and legs are all sculpted. All of the work is completed in around 30 minutes, the wounds are then packed with a mix of oil, mud and ash to encourage the raised scarring.

For this shoot I used a single speedlite from the side to best display the stunning body art. The cameraw... more »

For this shoot I used a single speedlite from the side to best display the stunning body art. The camera was set manually to underexpose giving a black background. The speedlite was fired using Nikon's CLS system in TTL mode making for a very simple but effective lighting setup. I used a small flag attached to the speedlite to prevent light from spilling on to the background. 

We used similar setups for all of the group members with different camera brands. The girls in the group did confess to being a little flustered and distracted however :-) - but everyone created their own great images!

The last few days were spent photographing the Huli Wigman tribes in the Tari highlands of Papua New Guinea. 

Whilst tribal wars between the various clans are still very real part of daily life in this area they were very friendly and welcoming to us as outside visitors. We had a lot of fun here photographing the very colorful characters!

Just checking my gear for the next exciting photo tour.

Off to Papua New Guinea tomorrow to lead a group of photographers through the very remote tribal lands exploring some of the worlds most amazing and intact cultural wonders.

"Balloons over Waikato"  New Zealand

Please share if you enjoy :-)

It was a stunning morning yesterday in Hamilton with the dawn fog really adding to the scene. It was well worth the 4.30am start to drive down to Hamilton and photograph the spectacle.

ISO 200. f5.6 for 1/1250 second.

Delicate Arch sunstar, Arches National Park, Utah.
Another lens change, move positions and yet another very different look to the same location (see the previous two angles on earlier posts). Such an amazing place!

It's always interesting to see what can be achieved by moving around, changing lenses and rethinking your image choices.
  
This is the same location as the previous image. I moved down a steep bank, used a wider lens and included Catherine in the image for a sense of scale. For her to be in the light she is standing very close to the edge of a rather large cliff :-) 
Delicate Arch, Moab Utah.

Utah rocks! "window to the world..."

Please share if you enjoy :-)

I shot this image on our recent road trip through Utah, the use of a longer lens gave a different look to Delicate Arch near Moab and I used it to frame up the background mountains.
