ABOUT TIGERS & ME
I've worked as a professional freelance photographer for the last 16 years, and have covered numerous editorial and advertising commissions during my career. My passion for tigers began when I saw a white Siberian tiger about 10 years ago during a visit to Taronga Zoo in my hometown, Sydney, Australia. For me anyway, it was love at first sight! This inspired my fascination with tigers and drives me to take action about their plight.
Since then, I've has become involved in wild tiger conservation to focus attention on this critically endangered species. More recently, I've began work on developing tiger imagery products to highlight the importance of wild tiger conservation and also leverage fund-raising activities, which is my small part in contributing to the continued survival of tigers in the wild. As an experienced photographer with a passion for tiger conservation, I'm ready, willing and able to contribute in the most meaningful ways possible.
Over the years, I've been lucky to gain considerable experience photographing tigers. During a photoshoot at Symbio Wildlife Park, the owner allowed me behind the tiger enclosures and was able to get so close to one of these glorious big cats that I felt the tiger's breath on my face.
A life changing moment for me, and perfectly summed up
by these words from the I Ching :
"Without the breath of the tiger there will be no wind, only clouds, and certainly no rain".
50% of all sales are donated to 21st Century Tiger -
a vital conservation organisation dedicated to preserving the lives and habitats of these beautiful big cats.
Without the breath of the tiger there will be no wind, only clouds, and certainly no rain.

Tigers in the wild are on the brink of extinction due to poaching, habitat destruction and human encroachment, especially through the unsustainable and unethical production of palm oil.
One hundred years ago there were 100,000 wild tigers, now there are less than 3,200.
But there is one simple thing we can all do to stop our beautiful tigers, and many other animals, from becoming extinct. Simply look at your shopping, and don't buy products which contain unsustainably produced palm oil.
We CAN all do something.
Please help them.
