I was interviewed earlier this week, alongside graphic novelist Simon Lamouret, and fellow photographer Magali Couffon, for the Deccan Chronicle.

I think this title deserves Pro-tips rather than quick tips, but anyway. National Geographic Explorer Prasenjeet Yadav shares his experiences and thoughts about being a storyteller. He once told me, “an image has a shelf-life, a story will last forever”. I cannot agree more! :) So please, take the time to read his views, take notes, get out and start your own stories! You can check out a sample of his work at the bottom of the piece.
Taking pictures is only the beginning of your images story... the rest depends on you, and who sees it. I spent a long time looking for the best place to display my images, somewhere that is well organised and makes my images look good (unlike Facebook). This is where JungleDragon came in, and I must say, it is my go-to place for sharing all my wildlife images. You should all check it out! :)
This is an interview with Ferdy, the brains behind JungleDragon, and a great photographer in his own right. I hope you find it interesting.
I came across Andries on JungleDragon (a wildlife community website). Not only does he have some fantastic images, but some jaw-dropping wildlife stories from his time working in the wilds of Namibia!
A key component of wildlife photography is to know you subject. Knowing more about your subject will allow you to preempt situations and shots rather than reactively taking them.

A while ago, I posted an article about the fact we are living in a potential "Digital Dark Age". Now, this got me thinking about our responsibility to ensure our images are 'future proofed'. So I decided to reach out to UWA Historian Dr Andrew Broertjes to ask him about what he thinks about the potential loss of digital information and the impact it might have for the future! Many thanks Andrew!
