Reviews

"Production quality is first rate, with very accurate colour replication. Many pages contain just one photo which gives the reader the opportunity to appreciate the superb detail. The exquisite photography will not only motivate any aspiring nature photographer but will also be appreciated for the aesthetic value of the imagery."
Paul Mansell, Wildlife Australia Magazine, Autumn 2012, pp. 43

"Without exception, the photos are stunning and capture rare and/or spectacular moments. Each photo is accompanied by an anecdote about how it was captured, adding charm and interest to this beautiful book."
Rhianna King, Landscope, Autumn 2012
