Finally, in sixth place of my “best wildlife” TripAdvisor series, is this image of reindeer inFinnish Lapland. We had visited a traditional reindeer farm to learn about the traditional practice of reindeer herding from a Sami man and it was chaos. The reindeer had followed the
snowmobile and were circling around looking for food. I was finding it very difficult to compose a shot when all of a sudden there was a break in the madness.

In fifth place of my “best wildlife” TripAdvisor series is the newest addition to my favourite images of all time file, a shot of a baby humpback whale in Tonga. Shooting underwater ordinarily presents its own set of challenges, but not for me as I shoot with Olympus who make native underwater camera housings. I had full control down there, and more energy to concentrate on the experience of coming face to face with a twirling, rollicking, joyous baby humpback whale.

Kaikoura Albatross Encounter Tour from ChristchurchDec 2018
When I took this photo in Kaikoura in 2017 I thought it was my favourite wildlife photo EVER, but for my TripAdvisor “best wildlife” series it’s only made fourth place. This is my angry bird, titled for his stern little face. I vividly remember the experience of taking this photo as I was so seasick at the time and it was particularly rocky on the water. In saying that, the rise of the swollen seas presented an incredible photo opportunity and I took advantage of it.

This is image number three in my TripAdvisor “best wildlife photography” series that I am running, although this is another shot that I love with all my heart. This year I had the absolute honour to work with the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation and I was exposed to so
much of the program that many don’t see. I’m proud to say that my work spread awareness of the plight of the Orangutans into new circles and this is work that I know will be ongoing.

My second favourite wildlife photo that I’ve ever taken was this happy little Arctic Fox.Although it looks like he’s posing nicely for my camera I can attest to the fact that he literallystood still for a split second and it was purely my patience and position that actually yielded me a shot. I’d love to see an Arctic Fox in the wild but for this image I was actually at a genuine Wildlife Preserve in the Yukon Canada.

My favourite wildlife photo of all time won’t be a big surprise to many. I took it four years ago and it’s been a favourite ever since. This image of wild horses was photographed out of a helicopter in the Kimberley and it was only the intuitiveness of our pilot, the excellent timing of the horses and my intrinsic knowledge of my cameras settings that yielded this shot.
