About the Book
This book is a text and portfolio of India's wildlife, with a special emphasis upon the Bengal tiger. The images were made over a 7 week period by Joe and Mary Ann McDonald while leading a photo safari scouting trip to three of India's best national parks for tigers. In additional to tigers, the 79 images cover all of the major mammals and many of the birds found within these parks. The images are wonderful, as a preview of the book will show.
For over 25 years I have been photographing nature and wildlife professionally, full-time. At the same time, our business has expanded 25 years ago to include leading photo tours and safaris worldwide, and in teaching photography and photoshop at our studio in central Pennsylvania. My wife, Mary Ann, and I have won 1st, 2nds, and 3rds in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the year competition 14 times, more than any other husband/wife team. We have written over 36 books, including 7 how-to books on wildlife and nature photography. We are represented by multiple stock photo agencies worldwide, and our work has appeared in every major US nature publication.
