Photos of Iguazu Falls – Brazil and Argentina

I have just returned from a wonderful photography trip to one of the seven natural wonders of the world – Iguazu Falls. The falls are shared by the Iguaçu National Park (Brazil) and Iguazú National Park (Argentina) , and have been designated the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The “Iguazu” name comes from Guarani or Tupi words, and means big water. Iguazu Falls resides where the Iguazu River falls over the edge of the Paraná Plateau, some 14miles upstream from the Iguazu’s confluence with the Paraná River. The waterfall system comprises of 275 falls along 1.67 miles of the Iguazu River. Iguazu falls boasts the greatest average annual flow of any waterfall in the world.

Sao Paulo Cityscapes

A few photos from my new home in Brazil – Sao Paulo. I am starting to enjoy living here as i discover new areas and things to do. My recent photo is from a park i visit each day in the heart of the city. But only a stones throw away are views like these over the city. Traffic is a major problem in Sao Paulo, with jams occuring all over the city at anytime. Recently the city has provided a bike hire scheme like London, and a bike lane day through the city on sundays.

    Hi Alex,
    I hope you are well.
    I’m doing some work with Will Taper at Willmotts a small property firm in Hammersmith.
    We will be printing some Christmas cards to send to clients, would you be interested in supplying a winter image?
    I saw a photo of yours, a robin in Richmond park with a snowy background, plus we could advertise your book on the back of the card?
    Let me know your thoughts.
    All the best,

    Dear Alex
    I really admire your photography. In particular I would love to paint/ be inspired towards painting something from your Richmond Park Deer photo.
    I’m a semi professional Artist, and the painting may get sold at our art society exhibition.

    Would you give me your permission to do this? I will of course attribute my inspiration to you.

    I’m not sure how these things work, but wanted to check with you.

    Very Kind Regards
    Hannah Bruce

      Hello Alex
      My name is Ann Hawkins. I am so happy to have found you. I wrote and illustrated an environmental children;s book. It took me 16 years to pain because I had to teach myself. I am getting ready to publish it on create space.

      One of my paintings is your swan photograph on the misty river with the oak trees on the bank. I have added many things to it such as extra swans, some deer and an large oak on the river bank as I was trying to add additional things for small children to point to, count etc. however the original swan and background are basically copied from your photo.

      I could send you a picture of that particular painting for you to look at. I am hoping to get your permission to include in my book. Worst case scenario I could replace that photo with my bat painting.
      There are 32 paintings total. Only one other painting of a bunny in a clearing closely resembled my finished painting. I found that photographer months back. National Geographic said they couldn’t help me research photographers. I tried everything I could think of to find you except the actual NG website.

      I am donating 10% of any profits I might make to water. org.

    Hello, I am doing a photographer study for my photography course and I was wondering if I could email you and ask you a few questions such as how did you get into photography ect…

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello Alex, My name is Ann Hawkins. I live in the United States. I need to ask your permission to use a variation of one of your photos. I written and environmental children’s book . I wrote the story 16 years ago and have taught myself how to paint mostly by using national geographic photos. One of my book illustrations uses your swan photo as a main theme.

    I was hoping to get your permission to keep my painting the way it is. I am self publishing my book so I you do not approve I will remove it from my book. I would be happy to send you a copy of the whole book or just the painting I am referring to.

    Sincerely, Ann Hawkins

    You published an article titled, “Friday the 13th Is Back. Here’s Why It Scares Us.” Friday the 13th has deeper roots than the one you mentioned. The angel of death came to Egypt on Friday the 13th of the month and killed the first born of all living creatures, including man, because they refused to obey the God of the Bible and “let my people go.” That is the origin of Friday the 13th! 🙂

    Bonjour Alex, j’adore votre travail, je suis peintre sur feuilles d’arbres et je voulais vous demander la permission de m’inspirer d’une de vos photos de cerf pour réaliser une miniature.
    Merci d’avance pour votre réponse en espérant que cela sera possible.
