The book has something for everyone:
For the Tiger Lover - we cover all aspects of Noor's life via a collection of stories about our most wonderful encounters with her. We've included other wildlife too, leopards, birds, deer all feature. The writing puts you right there with us at the decisive moments, it will captivate you and really bring the pictures to life.
For the Photographer - the images will inspire you with a mixture of styles rarely seen in any wildlife book encompassing colour, monochrome and Infra-Red. With the latter we have a lovely Infra-Red portfolio showing Noor's territory in the harsh light of Summer. Plus you will get commentary throughout on what it's like being a Noor photographer AND two spreads of Photo Hints & Tips that you can use for your own photography.
Here's a few pages from the book...
So as photographers where do we fit in conservation? Well we have both raised funds for conservation projects in Ranthambhore, the last one was to dig a well on the outskirts of Ranthambhore to stop tigers going into villages to get water in the dry season. You didn't see it on social? No because we took some of the profits from Andy's first tiger book and used them without any fanfare. Also from that book donations were made to several other NGO's as well.
We don't make any claims about our conservation credentials, as we are just two tiger loving photographers. But what we do is to give wild tigers great PR throughout the world with our work, and allow others much more talented than we are to deliver their conservation messages more effectively by using our powerful imagery. We are PR agents for Noor and her fellow tigers. And that is the focus behind this book, we want you to love tigers like we do, and perhaps afterwards get involved by supporting one of the organisations that we highlight. Only by supporting these great organisations and the valuable work that they do, and getting greater public awareness, will the tiger survive. We have all got to learn to live together in this expanding world, and that desire must come from within.
