    Hi Everyone,

    I'm new to the forums and I've skimmed through the guidelines and didn't see anything about posting bodies of work rather than single images so here goes :)

    The photos are not your standard "chocolate box" photography, so please don't expect 'record' shots. I've tryed to do something a bit different with wildlife photography, an area of photography that i think is way behind the rest, dare i say!

    anyway, hope you like. but i guess i would hope more that the traditionalists won't like them, becasue then i'm heading in the right direction :)

    Enjoy!

    thanks for your time,

    Michael.

    this following is from the guidelines:

    "1. Only post images that you feel you need help with, and only post one at a time - unless you need to post several for comparative purposes (for example: colour, sepia and b&w)."

    i would suggest reading the guidelines thoroughly instead of skimming over them...you can miss some valuable info. be that as it may, your post has been moved to the photo gallery where others can view and comment.

    welcome to TPF and hope to see more of your work soon as your portfolio is rather impressive.

    Jon

    Yes indeed. Some wonderful shots in there. I really like the approach you've taken. The lion is particularly stunning.

    thanks for the comments guys :)

    I made the site with Macromedia Flash. The site also has an admin so that i can update it wherever and whenever i want.

    I'm a web developer and have built a specialised photographers system :)

    cheers,

    Michael.

    I'm impressed. The raw colors really serve to bring out inner vitality & dynamics of the wildlife. I can't help but wondering about the safari story behind this presentation. How long it took you to get these photos done, could I take the liberty to ask?

    Bravo! :)

    Hi tsienni,

    glad you like :)

    the project was shot over 24 days on 2 seperate trips. My father is a wildlife photographer ( http://www.mikehillimages.com ) and I have grown up with wildlife photography, but i just wanted to do something different this time. All the shots are meant to depict the africa that i remember as a child. An Africa where the animals are ever so slightly hidden but always touched by an intense light that i have found nowhere else. An africa that might still be there had it not been tainted by tourists (myself included). They might be what a slightly drug induced hunter would have seen century ago. Thats the idea anyway! :)

    Again, thanks for the comments :)

    Michael.

    Wonderful and downright great set of pictures. Welcome to the forum, hope you stick around and post more pictures. Direct links tend to get more views. One thing about this board is that it is made of many people with differents tastes which makes it interesting, some are traditionalists others are not and everything inbetween.
