Stretching to get the best food

There is nothing better than being on foot in the Southern African bush. We were guided across a floodplain to where this fella and a few other ele's were eating. He would pull down the branches, eat, and then move away. The others would then finish off what he left.

Climate Change - the reason I wrote the Kyle Gibbs series

This photo was taken in Svalbard in summer before we sailed up into the arctic ice to photograph polar bears and whale. The icy landscapes are like nothing I've every experienced and were a joy to photograph.

Anatomy of a Cheetah Hunt

It was a poster on my wall as a child that fuelled my love and obsession for this spotted cat. The photographer had captured an image of a cheetah hunt, the animal frozen in time, the background scenery blurred as the creature focused on its fleeing prey.

I wanted to witness this spectacle in the real world but not out of a macabre lust for blood, it was for the supreme poetry of the evolution of the predator vs. prey battle. There was a brief glimpse of a Cheetah setting off on the run many years before in the Kruger National Park, but the trees and dense bush obscured all the action. I had to wait for 25 years.

A Hudson Drake action thriller

Should he heed the stranger’s warning, and stay away from the exotic beauty he had just shared a drink with?

Hudson Drake peeled the label from his beer bottle as he sat in the small bar in the town of Taiji. An image of her perfect smile flooded his thoughts. His track record with women wasn’t great but he found her desire to put a stop to the killing of dolphins, captivating.

In this eco-thriller, Hudson and his friends travel to Japan to peacefully protest against the annual dolphin slaughter in the infamous killing cove. A barbaric fishing practice that has been going on right under the noses of the world’s media, and together, they mean to expose it. There, he meets the mysterious, beautiful Eleena. His world is turned upside down as she tries to lure him down a path from which there would be no return.

EXPOSED: Secret network of wildlife traffickers selling BABY chimpanzees

A SECRET network of wildlife traffickers selling baby chimpanzees has been exposed by a year-long BBC investigation, spanning half a dozen countries.

The BBC team, led by its science editor David Shukman, uncovered a West African hub for wildlife trafficking, known as the “blue room”, which led to the rescue of a baby chimp.

The animals are seized from the wild and sold as pets or as performers in commercial zoos. Baby chimpanzees can command a price tag of $12,500, a little under £10,000, but sometimes more.

Up to ten adults are typically slaughtered to obtain one infant alive. Poachers often shoot as many of the adults in a family as possible, preventing them from resisting the capture of the baby.

Up to ten adults are typically slaughtered to obtain one infant alive. Poachers often shoot as many of the adults in a family as possible, preventing them from resisting the capture of the baby.

Once captured, the baby chimps then enter a sophisticated chain that stretches from the poachers in the jungles to the middlemen, who arrange false export permits and transport, and ultimately to the buyers.

After months of work the BBC team tracked down the smuggling ringleaders to a house in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.... http://www.express.co.uk/news/nature/760875/Exposed-secret-network-wildlife-traffickers-selling-baby-chimpanzees___

Blackfish

My review of this must-see documentary. Blackfish deals with the topic of captive orcas in a way that both respects the lives of the trainers who have died or been injured in the industry, as well as putting forward irrefutable arguments as to why these creatures should not be kept in captivity, never mind be forced to do tricks for our entertainment

Climate Change - the reason I wrote the Kyle Gibbs series

This photo was taken in Svalbard in summer before we sailed up into the arctic ice to photograph polar bears and whale. The icy landscapes are like nothing I've every experienced and were a joy to photograph.

Great Cities of the World – Barcelona

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” – St Augustine

Travelling around the world for work and photography, you get to visit amazing places with welcoming people from diverse cultures, and with thousands of photographs in the bag, I thought I’d share some of my favourite cities with you. Cities that have opened my eyes to what great creatures we are when we put our minds to it. The first in the series is one of my all-time favourite cities – Barcelona,

Barcelona is the capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia in Spain as well as the second most populated community in the country. It’s a tourist’s paradise with incredible architecture, vibrant streets and inhabitants, tasty Mediterranean cuisine and years of history for you to absorb as you wander around...Click to see allthe photos<... more »

Best documentary of the decade

My movie review of the epic Racing Extinction which is available on Amazon and other online stores. It's a movie which highlights the fact that we can no longer sit back and think that others are taking care of the planet. We have to get up off our latte-swilling fat arses and do something about it. Many of our large mammals will be lost from the wild in less than 20 years.

The reasons I chose to self-publish

The first things I realised as I read articles and books about producing a novel were that writing was a creative art form and publishing was a tough business. Two vastly different concepts.


Traditional Publishing vs Self-publishing is a tough choice to make but one that you need to get a grasp on as early on in your writing process as possible.

10 things you can do to stop the declining numbers of wildlife on the planet

So many people ask me what they can do to help stop the decline in wildlife of the planet. It is sad to see such lack of hope out there, but if you want something to change, you have to get involved and be part of that change.
The opposite if hope is apathy. Be hopeful not apathetic

Here are 10 things you can do that will make a major difference.

Great movie showing how Climate Change is affecting the rest of the world. Produced by Fisher Stevens with Leonardo DiCpario.

Before the Flood is now being streamed on the National Geographic website. It is free to watch, which in an age of rampant consumerism, is a rare thing indeed.

Tackling Multiple Writing Projects.

By the nature of the writing workflow which authors have to go through, it became obvious to me early on in my journey that there would be times where I would not be writing. Having spoken to other authors, it seems to be an overall consensus that you need time away between drafts of your work. A little time to refresh the mind like a spoon of sorbet cleanses the palate between courses of your meal...

The annual dolphin hunt is underway in Taiji, Japan. In the link below are some ideas to what you can do to help stop this needless slaughter.

This is no longer relevant to tradition as the meat is to high in mercury to eat. It's about greed as they kill pods to capture one or two animals for captivity and entertainment. $$$

600 Jackals massacred in the name of science.

Imagine if 600 elephants or lion had been culled at the insistence of bad conservation science, or for a cover up. Mainstream media would be scrambling to report it. Sadly, this is not the case when it involves a small predator and one that is not deemed to be attractive to the marketing campaigns of the larger wildlife conservation groups

My latest blog shows the horrendous sequence of events that led to the fraudulent cull of Black-backed Jackal in South Africa, and the culpability of SANPARKS, and NMMU (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth) and the Journal of Applied Ecology London.

Taiji Hunt season is just about to start and there are many things that you can do to help stop this. This season's quota (1 Sept 2016 - 1 April 2017) is 1820 cetaceans which is simply horrendous.

All the details can be found in the article. Below are the topics you can read about in the link.


1. Don’t support SeaWorld, Marine Shows, dolphinariums or oceanariums
2. Follow the people who are actually on the ground in Taiji
3. Share the event on all your streams
4. Sign any petitions that you can find
5. Donate to the Ric oBarry dolphin Projects
6. Buy a copy of the "The Cove."
7. Protest at your local embassy
8. Buy a copy of IGAZI (proceeds go to a dolphin cause)

Black-winged Stilt

Standing on a bridge over the vast Olifants River in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, I was able to capture this little wader as it went about feeding in the sun-drenched river below me.

Because of the height, I was shooting down from, I could get the whole river in an orange background.

The Cove - Movie Review

On the first of September, the cruel dolphin hunting starts again in Taiji, Japan. The 2016/2017 quota for this despicable slaughter is 1820 animals.

Here are my musings and thoughts on this groundbreaking documentary which helped raise awareness to the Killing Cove. If you have't seen it yet, I urge you to see it and spread the word. It is through education that we can stop the slaughter and capture of cetaceans.

Love Birds of Prey?

Here are some of the wonderful species of BOP that you can photograph in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, and in the wider Kalahari.

Although the Kalahari is a semi-arid sandy savannah, there are is a large presence of predators which are easily visible.

Dangerous waters

One of the true evolutionary successes of the planet. Like sharks, they are the ultimate predators in their environments and have survived for millions of years unchanged...until man came along of course.

Overpopulation - a planetary disease
Humans have become a planetary disease. Overpopulation is the problem. These are sentiments you may not utter in public without scorn or the shake of a head. As an organism, we have become like cancer on this earth, and while we have our natural place in it, our ego stops us seeing that we are not vital to the planet’s future ...

Solitude

During all the travels we do, it is great to be able to take time off and just relax. No place is more conducive to that than my local patch.

Early morning mist and the golden rays of the sun bring about new chances for the day.

Overpopulation - The planetary disease we dare not speak of.

This is by far the biggest threat facing the planet, and the one that we are doing the least to solve.

Forget about poverty, climate change, habitat loss, pollution and all other campaigns that you are actively getting involved in. Unless we slow rapidly increasing population numbers, they are all pointless.

My thoughts and solutions on the blog. What would suggest we do?
