Wild Philippines!

I’m finally¬† just about to head off to the Philippines to start the Wild Philippines project! This has been in planning for quite some time, and has already become something of a saga, but at long last from tomorrow (ie 6th Feb) it’ll become practical action.

Wild Philippines will eventually turn into a new book of that name, a major publication about the natural habitats and the amazingly unique wildlife the Philippine islands, both on land and under the water. Publication will be by Oxford-based John Beaufoy Publishing and is scheduled for sometime in 2019.

There’ll be two trips for this project, this first one running until early March, with the second trip a little later in the spring or early summer.

I’m hoping to run a bit of a video diary and blog as the trip progresses, so stay tuned to this page to see more! Meanwhile, here are a few sample images from previous Philippines trips, plus a little video clip – actually shot in the Maldives, not the Philippines – as a bit of a taster for what’s to come with the underwater photography. Just note that there is no sound with this little clip. I hope you like it!
