I am delighted to have just received my limited edition copy of the Remembering Rhinos book. It will be launched at the Royal Geographical Society on 1st November. There will be an exhibition of the photographs from the book at La Galleria, 5b Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 4UY from 30th October until 11th November. Images for the book and the exhibition have been donated by 65 of the leading wildlife photographers from around the world.
Below is a short video of me opening my limited edition book, showing just how beautifully it has been produced. Standard editions of the book, which are equally beautifully produced, will be available for £45. A few of the 50 limited edition books are still available, for details of how to purchase and for information about the exhibition, click on the link below. The 50 limited edition books are each signed by Virginia McKenna OBE, co-founder of the Born Free Foundation and come with a signed photograph of my image “Africa’s Heart”.
My 10th Anniversary exhibition at gallery@oxo, closed on Sunday August 20th, we had a staggering number of visitors through the door, more than 19,000 people over the duration of the exhibition. Thanks to all who visited and to those who helped make it such a great success.
My exhibition at gallery@oxo, closed on Sunday August 21st, we had our highest visitor level to date with just over 18,600 visitors over the duration of the exhibition. Thanks to all who visited and to those who helped make it such a great success.
I am pleased to announce that I am returning to the gallery@oxo for my 10th show in 9 years.
In this 2016 instalment, you can see a selection of wildlife photographs from around the world, through which I aim to show the frailty of the world around us. This is especially poignant for me after visiting the last three Northern White Rhino on the planet in March of this year, and how awful it would be for us to lose any of our many endangered species.
If you are not currently on my mailing list or have not yet received an invitation and would like to attend the private viewing, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for an invite.
All profits from sales at this exhibition will be shared between WWF and Hoopers Africa Trust, a charity providing education to disadvantaged girls in Kenya.

Thank you to all who attended my exhibition at D-Contmeporary, mine was only the second show that they have hosted, I have to say that the gallery and staff are fantastic and it was an absolute pleasure to have been there. Below are a few pictures of the installation prior to opening. Now the exhibition has finished, it is time to focus on my next show to be announced shortly.
I have just taken delivery of my largest commissioned print which is to be hung in an outside space. My lions in the ebony grove, which I photographed in Zambia, has been produced using a new weather resistant direct to media printing process by Genesis Imaging. The image is 3m wide x 1.5m high on brushed aluminium.
Direct to Media UV Printing is a large format, full colour ultra-fine inkjet printing process which allows artwork to be printed directly on to virtually any flat surface up to up to 3m x 2m and up to 60mm in depth, and is suitable for both interior and exterior display.
The ultra-fine droplets of ink are deposited directly on to the printing media which is then almost instantly cured, or dried by UV (ultraviolet) light. The specially developed ink droplets are bonded to the surface of the chosen media – giving a smooth, stable, abrasion resistant and long-lasting image.
I have often been asked by clients for images suitable to be hung outside, I am pleased that this process means that I can now offer this service.
There is link to Genesis Imaging on the right hand column under useful links.
