New Special Edition Large Acrylic Prints Now Available Of 2 Of My Favourites!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Occasionally, I will produce Single, Limited & Special Edition Prints to compliment all the prints available in the Web Shop.

I have produced 2 new Special Edition Prints (just 1 of each are available) that are now available to purchase. Both prints are printed on acrylic in a large 60x40cm dimension.

Acrylic is an expensive printing process which is printed directly onto 3mm thick acrylic and then sealed with a white background giving a stunning polished frameless look with real depth. It creates a view as if the image is back-lit which really makes the colours stand out to the viewer. I am able to offer local pickup here in São Marcos da Serra or I will personally deliver within a small radius of the central Algarve region, I can also deliver to the town of Ourique in the Alentejo.

No matter how hard I try, the beauty of these acrylic prints cannot be appreciated by a photograph and viewing is also available, please Contact Me to discuss this, the Coffee is on me!

Please note, there is only 1 print available of each image so be quick!

The first image I chose to produce was Waves At Dusk. This image was taken on Praia de São Rafael just after sunset and captures the waves washing back out to sea.

How I Use The Merlin Bird ID App In The Field (Video)

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I have been wanting to create this video for a while. I get often get asked to recommend an ID book for bird life of Portugal and I always ask, “Do you have a smartphone?”. Of course, often the answer is yes and my reply is to download the amazing Merlin Bird ID app by The Cornell Lab.

This app is totally free and very powerful, its Photo ID feature really sets it apart from other Bird ID apps. There are other apps I use, particularly the locally developed FollowBirds App which I will hopefully be reviewing soon.

This video is a bit long but worth the watch if you are interested in identifying bird species using its fantastic Photo ID Feature.

The app is available for both Android and IOS and can be downloaded from the links below;

Android

Apple

In case you are wondering, no, I am not being paid by The Cornell Lab or anyone else for this video, I just wanted to share how great it is.

This Week’s Featured Print : Sunset Riders

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

This week’s featured print is only a few weeks old and I keep seeing it and keep admiring it. It came as complete luck, twice!

It is a small group of horse riders on top of the sand dunes at Salgados silhouetted by the orange glow of the sunset, the fact that a pair of Glossy Ibis flew into the frame was amazing.

Read the Sunset Riders – A Double Lucky Shot blog post for full details.

Of course, as usual for featured prints, there is a small discount applied for both framed and unframed prints. The contrast between black and orange looks amazing in print!

Recent Dogs-In-Nature Photoshoot Of A Pair Of Rhodesian Ridgebacks

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a pair of Rhodesian Ridgebacks in their own garden. It was a tricky shoot due to the amount of trees and bushes, but came away with photos that the owner loves. A Dogs-In-Nature shoot allows the dog(s) to behave normally and allows me to capture the natural behaviour that you will always remember.

For more information on these unique shoots, please see the Dogs-In-Nature Photo Shoot page. If you are thinking of something very different for a Christmas present, then why not give a Dogs-In-Nature Gift Voucher?

Here are just a couple of examples from the shoot.

Where’s Wally And Who Is The Lookalike?

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I was asked by 2 followers recently why there hasn’t been any Dog Walk photos recently. For those that don’t know me personally won’t know that Lupi, our 2nd rescue dog was tragically killed a short while ago. As you can imagine, we were devastated and we continue to grieve. However, time moves on and because we originally took Lupi as a companion for Wally we decided to rescue another dog.

Therefore, we now have Millie, as you can see, shes almost a Mini-Wally. She is 5 months old and is another rescued dog. This morning I took a few snaps of her running about.
