September 2010: When Morten Strange asked me to contribute photos for the upcoming new edition of “A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Indonesia” I was more than happy to select some of my pictures. I ended up sending in 45 bird photos, mostly from Sulawesi and Halmahera, as these were high on the want list for the new publication. Most of my shots were taken on our 2010 tour of Sulawesi & Halmahera. A look at our tour report page may give you a better idea of the selection of photographs taken on that tour.
November 2012 :
It took two years, but my Periplus (which is now Tuttle ... ) book on Birds of Indonesia is now out.
There are 988 photographs in the Second Edition, and I provided only 578 of those myself, the rest are from some 40 outside contributors. Out of the 988, 324 images are new, compared to the 2001 edition.
You helped out with 14 images, they all came out great ... in fact, one we re-used for the cover as well! I hope you like it.
I didn't actually design the cover, I gave the publisher a choice of 6-7 suitable photos and they ended up picking yours ....but it came out well.
Thank you for your help and support,
