Not all who wander are lost...
Thank you all so much for visiting, commenting and "favoriting" my images. The feedback has been incredible.
And my recently published book AFRICA has been doing so extremely well thanks to all of you. Its already in the third printing after 6 month and recently became a fantastic review in the New York Times Book review and was honored as one of the best Coffee table Books of the year 2006 by Good Morning America (ABC-TV)!
And in August 2007 my new book EYES OVER AFRICA came out and is getting great reviews...
Check out this video on ABC News NOW
and this one on YOUTUBE
All my photographs are real photographs. Yes they are shot digitally, which I have embraced over 7 years ago, but they have not been manipulated beyond the normal and politically correct small retouching, adjusting levels, contrast, color balance etc.
Certainly nothing has been added.
Please visit my website www.michaelpoliza.com where you can have a look inside the book.
My books and calendars can be purchased
from AMAZON around the world POLIZA on AMAZON
I will keep uploading images every once in awhile, as there are a few more waiting....

Olivier DELAERE says:
"Voici et de loin la collection la plus extraordinaire de photographies qu'il m'ait été donné de voir. Elle traduit la maîtrise technique irréprochable de son Auteur, sa connaissance des sujets qu'il immortalise et enfin et surtout ce que je ressens comme une passion profonde pour la vie sauvage de la planète en général et de l'Afrique en particulier. Le résultat en est au plan clinique une impression inoubliable de la rétine et une luxation permanente de la mâchoire."

"Micheal has to be one of my most favourite photographers on flickr. I may not know him on a personal level but I'm in love with his photography. It leaves you awestruck at his talent and ability to capture nature at its spectacular best. I love his photos of africa and all its wonderful animals. He inspires you to explore the world of photography and appreciate the best."

"Michael has the most amazing animal, landscape and nature images I have seen. He gets so close and the detail is astounding. I love looking through his stream and imagine that I'm there and seeing what he does. Thank you for posting here Michael."

"AMAZING photographer! Michael's photos from Africa are breathtaking. He makes me want to take an African Safari, but only until my photography skills are half what his are. His coffee table book is going on my Amazon wishlist. :)"

"WOW doesn’t start to describe Michael’s work. Every time I look at his photos I get more and more blown away. I must admit I am jealous as he is living my dream."
