Andy’s photographs have appeared in a multitude of publications – from nature and travel magazines and periodicals, newspapers and books to billboards, calendars and postcards. Apart from assembling a library of photos for stock and print, he hopes that his website will illustrate the importance and diversity of the wildlife, natural areas and indigenous residents that make the tropical rainforests of Malaysia and Borneo so unique.
Many voices speak, argue and even yell over environmental issues, wildlife conservation and native rights, but it is the silent imagery of a stunning landscape, the soulful stare of an Orang Asal child or the minute detail of Mother Nature that grabs the attention and supersedes the babble.
All the wildlife and indigenous people featured in these photographs were taken in their own environment or in the wild. There was no manipulation of the subjects, their behaviour or their surroundings. None of the photographs are of animals in captivity. Very minimal editing (cropping and adjustments for contrast and brightness only) has been used.
Variations in monitor calibration may result in a difference between actual photographs and how they appear on your screen. While the application of the relevant hardware and software to accurately calibrate your monitor is strongly recommended, the brightness and contrast of your screen can also be adjusted manually. Simply ensure that 15 distinct shades of grey can be seen in the pattern below.
This website is dedicated to every indigenous tribe that Andy Paul has ever had the privilege of meeting in his travels. It has also been created in honour of every individual who tirelessly does their part – no matter how big or small – in supporting the beautiful Orang Asal, protecting their lives, world and wildlife.
