Imagine my surprise and pleasure when I opened an email from National Geographic recently, and saw the banner below? An advertisement for the re-opening of their museum with an exhibit of “The Greatest Wildlife Photographs”, and my image “Birds-of-Paradise Sunrise” was the featured image! This image is one of my all time favorites from my long efforts pursuing the ultimate bird-of-paradise images, so it’s very satisfying to see it get some special recognition like this.
BIRD PLANET Update
I’m excited to report that my new book BIRD PLANET is now off to the printers (it will be in stores October 4). I’m really happy with the way it has come together. It has been great to have a chance to review my entire archive to choose the most inspirational images from all over the world.
If you didn’t catch it already, I want to remind you that I am offering a signed copy of BIRD PLANET (personalized if you like) bundled with a 12-inch print for $100. I’ll only have 100 copies to sell in this way, and more than have are already sold, so you are welcome to per-order now if you would like to lock that in. Books will ship in October. Follow this link to see the offer for the Signed Edition of BIRD PLANET.
As a little sneak preview, here are a few shots from the book. In selecting the images, my aim was to capture the diversity and beauty of birds, and inspire people to care for their habitats, and thus habitat for all wildlife and a healthier planet for all of us.
These and other images from the book are also available now in my special BIRD PLANET COLLECTION gallery.
Thanks for tuning in as always!
Stay safe everyone, and be sure to get your dose of nature therapy. It’s a beautiful time of year!
PS. For all you ORANGUTAN fans, I think you will enjoy a segment I shot of the early life of a baby orangutan for the new Netflix series “Wild Babies”, which is now streaming. And to learn more about orangutans and the conservation work I’m involved with, please visit www.SaveWildOrangutans.org.
