WildArt, my first photographic ebook is now available for the Apple iPad. It can be viewed and purchased from my website or from Blurb. Click to buy it HERE.
Subtitled, A Lower Perspective it’s a simple tribute to the wonderful wildlife I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph since making the shift from film to digital photography.
There was no eureka moment, no single wildlife sighting or published photograph that inspired me to shoot the collection of photos for this book. Maybe it was the composition principle around the rule of thirds and a subconscious love of fractions that inspired me, or simply that I love being at eye level with my subjects.
As I traversed this wonderful planet of ours and photographed the various animals, birds and reptiles, I encountered. I soon realised that I preferred a slightly more abstract version to the standard wildlife portrait. Deep down, I must be a bit of a minimalist because I do love making the animal or bird the focus of attention. Slightly minimalist imagery with as clean a background as possible are scenes that I look for.
Once the theme started to evolve, I pursued a wider range of species in the hope of showing off the incredible diversity of critters we share the planet with. I especially wanted to showcase some of the smaller species that sometimes get taken for granted.
“Wayne has been on a very personal journey, one of equal extremes. Spending time with wild animals does something inexplicable to the soul, and in producing the images for this book Wayne has enriched his. What’s more, it shows in every image.”
