Wildlife and nature photographs have become ubiquitous as the world embraces the digital revolution. There are so many beautiful images visible today that it is challenging, if not impossible, to produce any one picture that is truly unique or displays a level of excellence that separates itself from the work of others.
Rather than showcasing a series of bests that competes with the bests found throughout the web, this book seeks to tell a story with its words and images.
Our story is a story about place, conservation and process. "The Last Stand" is a compilation of blog posts I authored following our second trip to Africa. This book is a photo blog from a Kenyan Safari written from the perspective of an evolutionary biologist, teacher, conservationist and photographer.
We hope that our images and words inspire the adventurer in us all and the desire to protect our fragile natural resources.
