Hot off the camera and hot here today, and we’re all feeling it this afternoon. Sitting and watching cheetah is never a hardship it just takes a little patience. Shooting like I’m on film, not looking at the days captures aside from seeing there are thumbnails in the folders. Enjoying Africa has to be more that just pushing the button at everything I see. @natgeoimagecollection @ilcp_photographers #cheetah #instacat #catlover #catsrule #sleeptime #wildlifephotography #nikon800mm #nocrop @nikonaustralia @natgeofineart #takeabreak #bigcat #needaholiday #onassignment @jasonedwardsng

It’s funny what you find on your phone when traveling. A flashback to a past a Geographic assignment, and a journey down a remote and definitely unpredictable track in Outback Queensland. The Ute has been synonymous with rural Australia for decades, and finding one in the middle of nowhere is s gift! @australia #australiagram @natgeoimagecollection @natgeofineart #ute #outback #travelphotography #agriculture #farminglife @holdenaustralia #travelaustralia #queensland

Photography is as much about looking as it is about knowing what to do when you see something. Always scan forward, behind, left-right, up and down because you never know what will pass you by. If you come across a mermaid watching you from the depths, grab the shot then chase her down for a model release! @natgeoimagecollection #mermaid #freedive @ilcp_photographers @scubadivingmag #frenchpolynesia #oceanlove #snorkeling @instagram #instamodel @seacam_official @nikonaustralia #reeflife #peace #serenity

A 17-second laptop balance on this frame before it goes into edit consideration. No filter stacking, no HDR, no layers just a single frame of Autumn colours over the tundra. Nature does it best. There is no need to mess with what She creates, just enjoy the spectacle and forget about competing with the postproduction junkies. In no time those treatments will be dated and you will forget what the wonder really looked like. #lessismore #lovenature @natgeoimagecollection @ilcp_photographers #landscapephotography @instagram #greenland #arctic #jasonedwardsng #keepitreal @visionarywild @wildernesssociety @elplanetaphoto #conservationphotography #instalandscape

My home for the past couple of weeks. To have a stable base to work from, with a great team and excellent naturalists makes being in the field and away from home so much easier. Obviously a spectacular landscape, excellent hiking, good food and too much wine help a little too! @natgeocreative @natgeotravel @ilcp_photographers #arctic #greenland #sailing @visionarywild #sailingship @natgeofineart #homeiswheretheheartis @lumas_gallery @lumas_australia #instasailing #sailingboat

There are offices with a view, and then there are offices with a VIEW! I am eternally grateful for the variety of locations and subjects that I get to experience and capture. When things get a little tough I always remind myself there are places like this in the world where life is peaceful and grand. Huge thanks to @francesdraskau for the captured memory. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers #onassignment @pelicanlifeau #roomwithaview #teampelican #officeview @natgeotravel #pelicanproud #greenland #pelicanproducts #arctic #pelicanau @outdoorphotomag #hiking #hikingadventures

In remote communities throughout the Arctic dogs are still commonly used for transport and companionship. In some areas modern vehicles are increasing, and with that shift dog use is declining and a way of life is disappearing. In the absence of commercially produced products sled owners will obtain dog food from the local environment such as this Ringed Seal harvested in a nearby fjord. @natgeocreative @natgeo @ilcp_photographers #sleddog #instadog #arctic #greenland #doglover #husky #huskypuppies #dogphotography #workingdog #puppylove @natgeotravel @natgeomuseum @natgeochannel @natgeoadventure

There are a myriad forms water can take when frozen. Photographically I’ve always been aware of the inherent difficulty in translating a 3-dimensional reality into a 2-dimensional image. I’ve quickly started to peruse the work I’m currently creating in Eastern Greenland and there are definitely gaps in the coverage, as there should be. Some through a lack of time and others through a shortfall in vision or exhaustion, or all three. An edit post sleep will determine the outcome but for now here are two different forms of ice that made me smile internally. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeo #landscapephotography #nikon800mm @visionarywild @natgeotravel @natgeofineart #greenland #globalwarming @wilderness_culture @conservationorg @thewcs

It is rare that a sunrise happens to face the exact direction you need it to. After all, if the lioness had killed the warthog on the other side of the shrub this frame would not have been as successful. And yes the sunrise always comes up the same way but lions are well, lions, and they do whatever they please! Heading into the Greenland ice fields this morning so my apologies if I go quiet over the coming days. Go well and be safe. @natgeo @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative #instacat #lioncub @natgeofineart @natgeochannel #catsrule #instacats @cats_of_instagram #babyanimals #toocute #safari #africa #botswana

A storm roles in over the central Serengeti swallowing the sunset. The eternal battle between cloud and sky is something that has given me countless moments of joy, more often than not simple joy in the beholding rather than the recording. As I board a flight to the Arctic I’m reminded that the world is still full of wonder and wild places. Go well and loook up every now and then. @natgeo @ilcp_photographers #timelapse #africa #landscapephotography #wideangle @natgeofineart @natgeocreative #wildplaces #peaceandquiet #lookup

How does the song go, “Some days are diamonds, some days are...”. An all-night edit helped break a deadline before I fly north. When I finished a dawn conference call I saw this image and reminded myself all babies are cute, life just beats some of us into a different look. I keep telling myself sleep on the plane, sleep on the plane... @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative @natgeo #babyanimals #babyface #funnyanimals #toocute #instababy @thewcs @nikonaustralia #nikon800mm #handheld

I land, I edit, I fly. Predawn selects every morning since touching down a couple of days ago. A sea of sand has the same effect on me as being in the ocean, settles the creative storm. A reminder that within days my world will be one of ice and sea, as I head back to the Arctic. The Namib, the roots of my internternational career a million miles ago. @natgeo @ilcp_photographers #namibia #landscapephotography @landscapephotomag #desertlife #sandsculpture #peace #peaceful @natgeofineart #keepitsimple #lessismore
