Photo Databases : A number of my wildlife photos have now been included on the Swaziland National Trust's Wildlife Databases e.g. Go to Birds and search under Photographer: Philip Perry. I also have some photos ion the following Databases: The Internet Bird Collection ; African Bird Image Database ; Some of my bird photos are also included on the new Roberts VII Multimedia iPhone Edition as well as the MultiMedia DVD version of Roberts.

My photo of a group of Blesboks silhouetted against Malolotja's mountains was Highly Commended in the Burrard Lucas Wildlife Competition.

My photo of a Lappetfaced Vulture attacking a Golden Jackal has just been selected as an 'Honourable Mention' in the Handbook of the Birds of the World's inaugural World Bird Photo Contest. A top 13 finish out of a field of 10,754. Very pleasing. The lappetfaced vulture had been sitting on a gnu carcass, keeping dozens of other vultures at bay (Ruppell's & Whitebackeds). When along came a golden jackal. He tried to take possession of the food source. But was immediately attacked by the lappetfaced. The vulture used a foot to squash the jackals hindquarters right down to the ground and threaten it with its massive beak. Quickly the jackal realised its gross misjudgement and then ran off at great speed into the far distance of Tanzania's serengeti.

Added Value for Eco-Tourism : Wildlife Photography Hides/Blinds. I am convinced that many eco-tourist enterprises can add significantly to their income by building well positioned, well designed photographic hides/blinds. Wildlife photographers will be more than willing to pay for the use of hides that promise reliable, excellent views and photography opportunities of interesting species. To encourage this I have set up a section on this website (Hides and Blinds) giving more information on the subject. Long-term I hope to be able to create a database of hide designs and details of the locations of good photography hides.
