Celebrated nature photographer Trevor Penfold returns with another stunning collection of wildlife photography… A handsome landscape-format volume with top-notch, eco-friendly production values, Wild Behaviour is a must for local nature shooters and an ideal gift for anyone with a passion for animals and the wild.
NZ D-Photo – by Adrian Hatwell: June – July 2013
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.
Otago Daily Times – by Stephen Jaquiery: May 2013
..(this) large-format book is ideally suited to display Penfold’s wonderful photographs at their best on high-quality stock and printed by one of the best printing companies. No expense has been spared, making it a pleasure to hold, read and admire… This is a book for all wildlife enthusiasts.
Dominion Post – Your Weekend magazine – by David Hallett: April 2013
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.
Forest & Bird magazine – by Marina Skinner: Nov 2013
It’s difficult to imagine the degree of patience required to capture the behaviour and intimate detail revealed in some of these incredible photographs of New Zealand wildlife… It’s all gripping stuff.
Air New Zealand – Kia Ora magazine – by Shelley Howells: May 2013
He has captured stunning images of many of New Zealand’s native and endemic species …(and) the photos are artistically realised, some with almost abstract motifs, where movement and colour and pattern interact… a beautiful book that also fulfills the author’s aim of raising awareness of the importance of using the environment in a sustainable way.
Waikato Times – Arts Diary – by Lynne Robinson: April 2013
There is no doubt the award-winning wildlife and nature photographer has captured the heart of some of New Zealand’s most unique animal life in this spectacular coffee table book, Wild Behaviour.
NZ Lifestyle Farmer – by Lisa Potter: April 3013
Stunning images of New Zealand wildlife, from perky little robins… (and) portly sea lions defending their harems… to yellow-eyed penguins… (and) of the way they behave.
NZ Herald – Canvas magazine – by Jim Eagles: June 2013
