Entering the world of book publishing was a natural progression for me as it allows me to share my love of nature and wildlife with a wider audience. Both books have beautiful images and descriptive text, as well as insights into my thoughts behind the shot and my field-craft techniques. They’re printed on sustainably sourced, high quality paper stock (by Forest Stewardship Council accredited printers) which really showcases each image, producing a top quality book that’s a pleasure to hold and browse through.

Movement, colour and pattern interact – a beautiful book

He has captured stunning images of many of New Zealand’s native and endemic species. The photos are artistically realised, some with almost abstract motifs, where movement and colour and pattern interact… a beautiful book that also fulfils the author’s aim of raising awareness of the importance of using the environment in a sustainable way.

Shows the quirky, humorous and appealing aspects of wildlife behaviour

Marine mammals, penguins, sea birds are expertly frozen by his patient and calculating photography. Penfold masterfully uses a neutral background to emphasise his subject – which holds fascination for both the student and the expert photographer. His studies are not the formal portraits but instead show the quirky, humorous and consistently appealing aspects of wildlife behaviour

Stephen Jaquiery
Otago Daily Times, N.Z.

Trevor’s great love of wildlife shines through

Trevor Penfold’s great love of wildlife shines through in his collection of photographs. It takes long and studied observation of animals to capture their behaviour so strikingly. The shots are carefully composed, and he shares the technical details of all photos at the end of the book, giving others the opportunity to replicate his work – no easy task.
