Kakapo- hope-for-a- future

27th July 2015
A while back I had contact through my website from an artist in Australia who wished to licence one of my pictures, a Mallard Drake, to bring it to life in another medium by painting it.

Other than being very flattered by this request, I was also really impressed that Janet Luxton, the artist, was also seeking permissions and wishing to buy a licence from the Getty library where my image was being shared. Having heard so many stories lately from fellow photographers who have had their worked copied and never even acknowledged, let alone benefited by any royalty payment, it was extremely cheering news!

Since then Janet has kindly sent me an image of her final production and my mallard drake looks rather fabulous at 130 x 170cm size on Belgian linen.

Janet has asked me to help promote a homeland cause close to her heart that I have provided a link to below and again on the link page on my website. If there is anything you can do to help prevent the loss of yet another endangered species I am sure Janet and her team of conservationists would be thrilled to hear from you.

I'd love to think that one day any one of us could see a Kakapo in the wild!
