Black Rhino at Night

At Okaukuejo waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia, something special happens when the sun sets. Black Rhino gather around to socialise, drink and bathe.

Improbable Books

My Uncle has just published his final book of his new "Improbable" Trilogy. The books are a humours take on fantasy books. Its a bit like Monty Python, Fifth Element and Lord of the Rings.Take a look below. They are available in paperback or on ebook. When my uncle published he told me of the process and very soon my book will also be available to buy. Im just doing some final formatting before it will go live. Let me know what you think  of my uncles books. Click on the image to take you to the amazon page (they are available in all amazon stores not just the UK one).

If you like the look of them check out his blog (Click here for Padsbooks)

Namibia HDR

I have recently been to Namibia, which is a stunning country. I visited Etosha in the north, Fish river in the South, the Namib in the centre and other places along the way. Below are a few HDR images of my trip. Soon I will have a special Black Rhino video coming up unlike anything I filmed before but its taking a while to process.

A Day in the Life of a Gorilla Habituator

During my time in Gabon I put together a video showing what it is like to habituate gorilla. It starts when I wake and ends when the stars come out with all the walking, data collection and data entry in between.
