About The Book

Every book sale for the month of January will be donated IN FULL to assist wildlife and habitat recovery.


Koalas & Cockatoos

Over a billion animals and 10 million hectares of wilderness have been lost in the bushfires. I'm donating copies of my new photography book to raise funds for our wildlife and their habitats. When you buy a book the entire purchase price of $100 goes to the appeals listed below. No caps or limits, and I cover the bank fees too.

My goal is $10,000, or 100 books, but if I can go better than 100 then fabulous - I'll donate every book I have in stock. Please help me to raise money, and get yourself a great photography book in the process.

Make A Difference



In 1983 my grandmother lost her home in the Ash Wednesday fires. The house was made of of stone and brick, but little more than dust remained after the fire passed through. My memories of the fires, the smoke and the sound of helicopters is something I will never forget.

As dreadful as Ash Wednesday was, this years bushfires are far more terrifying. The scale and force of the devastation is unlike anything we've seen in Australia before. The impact on lives and communities in every state has been devastating. For our wildlife, the impacts may be even worse. Habitat destruction is the biggest factor in species extinction today, and we have just lost millions of hectares of native bush.

I know $10,000 won't bring back the animals that perished in the fires, but I have to do something. The only response I can offer to such disaster is to try and support those who are protecting our wildlife and habitats. I have selected a few organisations to support, each of which are doing something special and each of which can use the money wisely. So please help me to help our wildlife.

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
