Steven Stockhall writes our fortnightly blog on Wildlife Photography and conservation issues. It therefore makes perfect sense for us to allow you to gain full insight into Steve's widlife and photography knowledge by stocking the book he co-authored with James Gifford. While we have not met James, we have met Steve and know that he is not only one of Botswana's leading professional guides, but he is a wizard with camera in hand. The book also contains some great quotes too. Our favourite is by Peter Adams: "A camera didn't make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel."
