Silt and sand eroded from the slopes of the Southern Alps in New Zealand, flowing into a turquoise lake. The pristine wilderness is a credit to New Zealand’s active desire to preserve wild places. Time and again this tiny nation sets the standard for sustainable living and future planning. .

I cherish every opportunity to spend time with Mountain Gorillas, and have watched with great joy their numbers increase over the decades I’ve been coming to this region. . Recently they were re-classified as Endangered having previously been Critically Endangered. They are still at enormous risk, but their numbers are heading in the right direction after many years of hard work by local communities and global conservation bodies. .

It’s not always about having the best light shining directly on your subject, that super-saturated hue of the golden hour. It’s a myth that you’re always in the right place at the right time, that you planned and researched exactly when and where you should be. In reality that is just social media hype. . We all do our best of course, but sometimes you happen across a scene and in those few seconds have to make a decision. Do I want a blown-out foreground or an accurate background? As is often the case, less is more. . When this Leopard descended the tree it was all over in a blink. I consciously stopped my exposure down and metered off the background. The elegant lines of the beautiful cat were enough to tell the story of my brief encounter, and I was happy! Make every moment count but don’t miss the moment yourself, it’s just a photo after all.

No don’t get up, really don’t! Weddell Seals can move exceptionally fast when the need takes them. However, the rest of the time they’d rather just roll over and look at you instead of spending the energy to spin around. And then you see the enormous eyes and long, delicate whiskers backlit against the sea ice, and you think great do that again! .

It’s Word Oceans Day again where did the year go?! I say that partly in jest, and also in reflecting on the opportunities I’ve had to spend time in different seas around our wonderful planet. . I always cherish any time in the salty brine whether it’s surfing, diving or swimming. For me it’s good for my soul and a genuine poultice for the stresses of everyday life. Even walking in the shallows makes one feel rejuvenated, if you haven’t tried that in a while I strongly urge you to do so. . I’d also encourage you to pick up a few pieces of rubbish from the beach even if it’s not yours. It won’t hurt you, and even grabbing one plastic bag might save a Sea Turtle from mistaking it for a jellyfish. .

The proud contours of the face of a King. It is nigh impossible not to feel humbled by a large male lion; the sheer size of a predator that can weigh in excess of 250kg and thunder across the savannah at tens of kilometres an hour is a marvel of evolution. The sheer impact of that mass at velocity, is enough to break bones. . It’s always important to remember that the vast majority of male lions are not imbedded in a pride structure. They hunt alone or in pairs if they are brothers, but generally they have to bring down their own prey without a sisterhood of lioness. .

The bond between humans and horses runs like a river through the evolution of our civilisation. What we’ve achieved would not have been possible without the domestication of this species. . From an emotional perspective, humans are inherently drawn to the intelligence and friendship that horses offer. In Australia indigenous communities form close relationships with horses that are utilised for mustering on outback cattle stations. Their horsemanship is a thing of pride and a skill they develop from childhood. .

Polar Bear have become the poster child for the global warming movement. With their habitat literally melting out from underneath them this makes sense. . When a single species is used to promote an environmental campaign it’s known as a keystone or keynote species, and it is utilised to create a connection between the wider community and that ecosystem. Other examples are Giant Panda, Mountain Gorilla, Elephant and so forth. This is a well-utilised technique to assist people in valuing the natural world. After all, it’s easier to get people onboard for something furry rather than a big hairy spider! . However, there are photographers and videographers who will bastardise their imagery and the message for financial gain. The message they share is often confused and inaccurate, and this spreads misinformation and often damages a cause and hampers good science. . A perfect example is claiming every Polar Bear on land is a victim of global warming, this is not accurate. Nor is every bear on an iceberg surrounded by ocean suffering. Again, yes the polar regions are being devastated global warming but we as image makers need to be careful about the message we distribute. .

Look at the world differently; cast your gaze up and down, left and right, give yourself some height and then get down low. Change your perspective, imagine life in another’s path whether that’s culturally, socioeconomically or physically. Wipe away the plethora of burdens we face as humans trying to survive an unstoppable onslaught of stimuli. . Imagine what really matters to other species and how they experience their world, see it from their perspective. The challenge of survival and the simplicity of necessity. For me those moments of clarity are what give me a moment of pause, and I take a breath. .

A Patagonian Fox resting on the altiplano of the Andes Mountain range in Chile. An opportunistic predator and also a scavenger, the fox survives the frigid winters with an incredibly dense coat of hair. Unlike the Arctic Fox the fur does not turn white when snow covers the land. The vignetting in this image was created by the lens-camera combination, atmospheric conditions, and the scanning of the #kodachrome transparency. .

Practice makes perfect, especially when the future of your genetic lineage is at stake. Male African Elephant begin to learn the art of combat from a very young age. As calf’s they push and chase each other around, testing there strength and developing their muscles. . As they grow through adolescence the mock battles become more serious, until at maturity they take on a more crucial role in the hierarchy of the herd. The males bugling roars can be as impressive as watching them wield tonnes of flesh and ivory! .

A shoal of diminutive Glass Fish dance in the shallows above the colorful corals. Oblivious to the machinations of geopolitics, economic hardship, manufactured territories, or scientific predictions of catastrophic biodiversity losses. . They’re not immune to any of these influences, quite the opposite really. But they are Glass Fish and will only ever be Glass Fish, free from the shackles we impose on ourselves and the unattainable expectations we shoulder. There is a beauty in that existence that far surpasses the vision of a sunlit aquatic ballet. .
