Some of George’s work was exhibited in Washington, Hong Kong,London and Japan. His photography has appeared in the pages of Nature’s Best, BBC Wildlifemagazine, BBC Focus, Nikon Pro, Outdoor Photography and many more. I try to capture the beauties of our fragile world and show everyone the real treasures of life. It may inspire people to live in harmony with nature.

I love SanDisk products for their reliability and ruggedness.

They have cards and hard drives which I can rely on in toughest conditions.
