When someone views one of my wildlife portraits and connects with their eyes, I invite the viewer to become more curious and take a closer look; to learn more about them to save them. Every species has a role to play in keeping our ecosystems thriving and functioning.

You only need to stop for a moment and look into their eyes to see how aware they are. Could their awareness inspire greater awareness in us to dissolve the unconscious and destructive behaviours that are destroying our natural world? Our modern, convenient way of living is destroying rainforest habitats, all for making ready-made snacks from palm oil. Those products come at a significant cost: the loss of the forest homes and lives of one of the most beautiful creatures in the world. Could we re-think the instant gratification mentality and glutinous consumption habits modern society is so driven by?
