Follow the link here to join Denis on a journey to the Okavango Delta in Botswana
Botswana’s Okavango Delta is remarkable because it is a wetland paradise in the middle of the arid Kalahari Desert. Each year floodwater flows into the Okavango from over 1000km away, creating a unique wetland that sustains a mesmerizing variety of wildlife. Without this water, the area would be as featureless as that of the surrounding Kalahari Desert.
Instead, it is one of the most sought after places in the world for wildlife and nature photographers. It is a shimmering, matchless watery jewel in the midst of inhospitable surroundings. It’s flat, wildlife-packed expanses are awash with African colours and vistas. For most photographers wishing to experience one of nature’s “untouched” jewels, this part of Africa is unsurpassed.

Hi all. Peter Eastway kindly offered everyone who attended our Workshop in Karijini a free subscription to Better Photography Magazine plus some images in the next edition due out in September. The three of us were blown away by the photos everyone got and we just put that down to our good teaching techniques. This is a grab of what will be going in the magazine early September. If you were on the workshop just check everything is right, spelling of your names etc and that your happy to go with it. Any complaints can be made to Peter Eastway between midnight and 5am!!
Now due to the success of the Karijini workshop Peter, Tony and myself are going to do it again late March 2011. I am taking names of those who will be interested in coming. Get in quick the last one was full in 3days.

I’m on fire, I might have even posted more than Markie in the past two days. Now your asking why is it so? I’ll tell ya!
24 reasons actually, 24 lovely GB of RAM. I got the 8 core back from Team Digital on Monday and now this thing screams. I feel like I’m back processing 5D files again it is that quick. The best money I ever spent. Now I have a usable machine to push pixels around. And do you know what? Content Aware fill actually works now!!
Now to the image. Shot on a mine site in the Pilbara and stylised for the hell of it. Having fun is what it is all about, I guess I should go and do some work that might actually make me some money. This image was inspired by my mate and Grand Master photographer Tony Hewitt.

Now at first glance you see a couple of fellas taking a nice photo up at Mount Buffalo. Now look closer, no not at my grey hair, who the hell is on the wrong side of the safety fence??? None other than resident adventure man Markie Mark Stothard. Now as a veteran of over 3000 parachute jumps this was no big deal………… to him. I had gravy stains in my jocks and after several attempts to encourage him back off the edge of the slippery rocks I relented. Then my competitive streak kicked in, maybe he will drop his camera off the side and then I had a better chance of winning the Alpine Challenge. Unfortunately he didn’t and now the bastard has been voted with the top photo from the trip of the autumn tree in Mount Beauty.
Goes to show with a DSLR and balls of steel anything is possible. I was happy with my safe spot, ok I didn’t win any challenges but I still have the camera everyone wants. With a phase and marshmallow balls you can still achieve greatness.
On ya Markie youdahellman!!
Oh I must thank Tom Tommy Putt for the photo, he was kind enough to shoot a few pics of us for our adoring fans! And secretly for himself. yikes, don’t even want to go there!! Love ya Tommy!

On the first night of our trip into the heart of the Pilbara we jagged a pretty stunning sunset. The best thing about this shot is someone had a cold beer ready for me as soon as it was all over. That was my last drink until getting back from the desert 5 days later. It is tough being a landscape photographer. Hope you like it.
