Want to know more about our expeditions, and how you can get involved? Go to "World Expeditions" for upcoming trip dates/locations. And read below.
In summary, we're building our Expeditions to capture the following:
If you head over to our "Wildlife Photography" page, you'll see images categorised into various portfolios that we've collected over the past +4 years. These are predominantly wildlife images, taken by Shane Ross (me) using an Olympus mirrorless camera. In total over 4 years I collected approximately 100,000 shortlisted images, of which I've shared many on my Facebook Page "Shane Ross Photography". I will only share select images on this website, but feel free to share/repost these (ensure you credit: Shane Ross Photography), or forward the link to your friends and/or family.
Due to the higher print quality and superior framing offered by the "Floating Frame Canvas" style (to your right), we've decided to only print in this format in future. We will, however, print on regular premium canvas (unframed) if specifically ordered.
We also offer specialised products including yearly calendars, jigsaw puzzles, mousepads, greeting cards, mugs and fleece blankets.
To order prints, simply open the tab to your desired category/categories from our Wildlife Photography drop-down menu (eg. Monochrome), scroll to the bottom of the page, find your desired image, choose applicable size and hit the "Add to Cart" button. If you wish to keep shopping return to your desired category. NB. Free shipping for all orders over $100 within Australia only. International shipping at additional rates OR we arrange your purchase of digital images (to print yourself).
Additionally, we also offer specialised training in photography, image processing, videography and film production - though anyone joining us on Expedition will receive as much training in that time as possible, as though they're on photographic safari.
* "What gear do you use?"
Main Camera: Currently I use an Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII and MkI Mirrorless Camera bodies PLUS Olympus Lenses: 300mm f4 IS Pro + 12-100mm f4 IS Pro + 8mm f1.8 Fisheye Pro + 60mm f2.8 Macro + 17mm f1.8 Wide + 75-300mm f4.8-6.7 MkII Zoom. I also use (occasionally) a Sirui Tripod when not hand-holding or resting my camera on a still object nearby. Use Godox flash systems. I hope to add the following to my kit: Olympus E-M1 MkX Body + 7-14mm f2.8 Pro Lens + Flash Systems.
Additional Cameras: GoPro Hero 4 Silver, iPhone 8, Moultrie Trail Camera.
We've been writing for years, though in order to share our amazing travel tales, promote our business, and reach a wider audience, we're looking for opportunities now! If you know of any magazines, online forums, newspapers, editorials, reviewer and/or publishers looking for material, please point them our way: email@example.com.
What kinds of magazines/forums we're looking for:
Another area we're truly passionate about is reaching audiences though public speaking. We've delivered to peer groups, universities, schools (various ages), specific forums and at other conferences and events.
Our interest is in inspirational and influential speaking addressing various topics, including:
If you would like us to present at an event (or know somebody who would be), please email us directly firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting time, in person or over video chat, and discuss the finer details of your project.
Currently, we've established Brand Ambassadorships with the following companies:
We'd love to support/brand-rep/collaborate with other companies, so if you know of anyone wanting product testing in some of the toughest environments in the world... please share! We'd love collaborations with:
