Wild Philippines in Geographical mag

I’m really pleased to be able to say that the July issue of Geographical magazine (the monthly publication of the Royal Geographical Society) contains a prominent feature on my book Wild Philippines.

Consisting largely of extracts from the book’s first two chapters, it also features some of the photography, focussing largely on the Philippines’ unique, or endemic, animal species.

Moving forward with Wild Philippines

This is a fantastic new development, as I have to say in all honesty that we’ve been having all kinds of trouble managing to promote Wild Philippines. Not surprisingly, much of that is down to the Covid-19 pandemic, which completely wiped out plans to promote the book in the Philippines itself. So the Geographical article is a major boost and step forward in getting news about the book out there, at least within the UK.

A moody nature video

A little while ago I started to increase the amount of video work I’ve been doing, and as a part of that I recently signed up with American agency Pond5, an organisation renowned for supplying video to the broadcasting world. My small part in all that is to supply short clips, which for me means concentrating on material that is my first love: nature and landscapes.

Creating an illustrative video

To start telling the world about this new side to my work, I’ve put together a short video that is an medlee of moody nature and landscape clips, shot mostly in southwest England, though with a few from the Philippines.

This short video, just 2 mins 37 secs long, illustrates the kind of video work I will be doing into the future. It has been published on my Youtube channel (Nigel Hicks Photography), and you can view it below.

I hope you enjoy it! If you do then of course feel free to subscribe to my channel. Hopefully, there will be many more videos to come.
