Information about the photographs
All photographs on this website were taken by Peter Hammond, except for a few, as indicated, that were taken by Nirbeeja Sarawati, and a few photos featuring us togther taken by friends or obliging strangers.
The photographs are displayed in low resolution format, for illustrative purposes only and in order to speed up downloading time. They are not meant for reproduction. Please contact us for information about obtaining higher resolution images and pricing. All photos are for sale except those relating to the Alice Springs Desert Park (for copyright reasons), and those of Aboriginal Rock Art, because I do not believe they are ‘mine’ to sell.

Prior to March 2010, we used a Canon S1-Is 3.1 Megapixel, digital camera with its standard lens. This was a great little camera but had its limitations. It put in sterling service, including several unintended swims, most notably in Tunnel Creek in WA’s Kimberley.
We have now moved to the Canon EOS-7d, 18.1 Megapixel Digital SLR. This has opened up a whole new world! We have the 15-85mm broad purpose lens, a 100mm Macro lens for close-up work and a 100-400mm zoom/telephoto lens, mainly for our wildlife shots. This camera and lenses are a brilliant combination and will more than test the capabilities of this photographer.
We have a disclaimer to make about the naming of photographs on our website. Neither of us are scientifically trained, so all flora and fauna are identified by their common name and, where possible, by their Aboriginal name. It is quite likely that we have incorrectly named a number of species. We apologise to any visitors who notice these errors and request that you contact us with any corrections. We are enthusiastic amateurs who simply want to share with you what we have encountered on our adventures.
