New Photos from Katavi National Park, Tanzania

After witnessing the amazing percolating crater of Nyirangongo Volcano and Virunga’s mountain gorillas, we flew to one of Tanzania’s most remote and rarely visited parks, Katavi National Park. Here in the dry season the Katuma River slows to a trickle and becomes the only source of drinking water for miles around. Wildlife in unbelievable densities is forced to converge on the riverine pools. Already the most dangerous animals in East Africa, hippos erupt in territorial disputes and crocodiles lurk nearby in an uneasy truce. This is one of the few places I have been where so many huge, dangerous animals have been so concentrated. In the midst of it all, an annular eclipse occurred, which seemed a sideline to this gritty wildlife spectacle. To answer your question: the crocodile did manage to wriggle away to safety.

Southern California Events Next Week!


Next week I’ll be heading to southern California for a couple of events in the L.A. area. Hopefully some of you plan to attend!

On Friday the 16th I will be joining Andrei Duman at his gallery in Woodland Hills at 7 PM for the opening of our exhibition, “Photography as Art: Capturing an Extraordinary World.” On top of showing some new work, I will be signing my latest and 100th published book, “Photographs From the Edge”. A portion of proceeds collected at this event will benefit, providing clean water to third world countries. RSVP to attend this event by contacting the Andrei Duman Gallery, and be sure to check it out on our events page!

The following Sunday, it will be my pleasure to present my ongoing Photography As Art seminar in Long Beach. This day-long course is designed to change the way you see – everything! We will talk about design principles and ways to capture visually interesting, imaginative, and creative images wherever you happen to be – even in your own back yard. There are still spaces available to sign up for this event, but it will fill up quickly as the date approaches. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in a presentation that I am very passionate about, and can’t wait to share with you!
