Getty Images

Hi guys,

Many many months ago i was signed up by Oxford Scientific, the then number 1 nature based image library.  Just as my images were put online on their database they were bought out by Getty Images, probably the largest and most famous online image library in the world.

I was sad to see Oxford Scientific go but excited about joining Getty. Unfortunately, in the hand over my images were lost and i have spent the best part of a year waiting for Getty to find them again in their database.

And finally the waiting is over.

My images are now online.  Click on the image above to see my portfolio.

Stay well,

Chris

Safari November 2011: Lake Mburo National Park

Hi guys,

The final leg of November safari took us to Lake Mburo National Park which i had only just found out would be my future home.  The park is mainly noted for two reasons; zebra and impala.  With Impala only found in Lake Mburo and Zebra sadly dying out in Kidepo, the strong populations in Lake Mburo are nationally important.

I also managed to get some nice little Francolin shots which are actually harder to get than you would think.  9 times out of 10 you actually see Red-necked Spurfowl and not Francolins but in this case i got lucky.

We also had a lovely moment with the normally shy and reclusive Bushbuck.

And finally the one other thing that Lake Mburo has that other areas of Uganda does not.  Some of the finest and best looking Ankole cattle in the world.  They do however get in the road!

Our safari in November was as breathtaking and surprising as i had expected.  Lots of great new images and some incredible moments with my client Rick.

Here is to many more.

Stay well,

Chris
