Never Cry Wolf Photography Book Now Available for Pre-Order

Today I am very excited to announce that my new fine art photography book ‘Never Cry Wolf‘ is now available for Pre-order through my online store HERE with delivery scheduled for early next year. The book includes a selection of photographs of wild wolves photographed during the last weeks of Autumn, on the cusp of the seasonal transition to Winter. The collection includes more than forty photographs of a young wolf pack coming of age as it learns to survive in the dynamic and rapidly changing Arctic wilderness on the border between Finland and Russia. A video preview of the book can be watched below.

Designed and printed in Australia on the finest archival art matt paper the first 100 pre-order copies only include a limited edition A4 fine art print of one of the Wolf photographs. Printed on Moab Somerset Museum Rag 300gsm, the fine art pigment on paper print is the perfect accompaniment to the book. Never Cry Wolf is available for Pre-Order now for $90 AUD inc. GST (approx. $65 USD) plus postage. I hope that you enjoy the photographs and quotes from this project Never Cry Wolf.

AIPP Silver Lining Awards 2020 2nd & 3rd Place Wild Category

Last night saw the running of the awards presentation for the inaugural 2020 AIPP Australian Institute of Professional Photography Silver Lining Awards. Held via Zoom due to the ongoing COVID crisis the awards were a wonderful showcase of fantastic photography across the different categories. With four photographs in the finals of the Wild category I was hopeful that one of my photographs might get up for an award and was thrilled to receive both 2nd and 3rd place in the category. Congratulations to all the participants for a truly wonderful event.
