Question (as posed by one of my clients): "When i put the card in the camera, it says "err sd" and if i use a card reader and the computer, it says corrupt disk cannot read, do you want to reformat. I know not to format. What do I do to recover my image?"  Thoughts anyone?

Those of you that know me, know me not to be much of a bird photographer. However, this bad boy was fun to watch and photograph in Kenya's Masai Mara in May 2014. Here, this Tawny Eagle just got a cobra and made a victory lap for us!

Story
Tagline
Specialize in fine art wildlife photography, indigenous portraiture and panoramic landscape photography from remote locations around the world. Check out my website at: www.southerncrossgalleries.com
Introduction
Dean Tatooles specializes in the field of nature and wildlife photography. Dean's innate talent for photography is evident in each of his striking images. Attributing his inspiration to photographers Peter Lik and Art Wolfe, Dean's passion and dedication to his craft are unsurpassed.

Dean's travels have taken him across all seven continents. At a young age, however, Dean became fascinated with the topography, culture and wildlife of certain locations in the Southern Hemisphere. In that spirit, Dean created Southern Cross Galleries after the constellation that bears its name and is only visible from below the Equator. Dean's hope is that his work touches that sense of adventure in everyone and that viewers of his photographs will be transported to another time and place, even if its for just a moment.

Dean works with Nikon digital SLR equipment to capture his spectacular wildlife images and indigenous portraits and a Linhof 617 S III Technorama medium format panoramic camera to produce his majestic landscapes. What you see in his final product is what Dean saw through his lens.

Dean's photographic prints are of the highest quality. It is important to remember that images viewed on the Internet pale in comparison to the actual print in person. Subtle details and nuances of color are impossible to convey in a low-resolution web image. The sight of the large, crisply printed image in person will simply take your breath away.

All of Dean's digital images are shot in RAW format at an extremely high resolution. Those images that are not shot in digital format are created using the highest quality negative or transparency film. After choosing only his best negatives or transparencies for printmaking, Dean has each one professionally drum-scanned by Danny Burk Photography, LLC to obtain the ultimate level of detail and sharpness. Through that process, each transparency is individually mounted using a special gel, and scanned at between 2000 dpi and 4000 dpi to extract the fullest detail, highlight, and shadow.

After carefully processing his digital images or scans, Dean personally creates each individual print in his own lab affording him complete creative control. All prints are of the finest archival materials and created on 100% cotton rag fine art paper suitable for any decor.

Dean's customers span five continents. Many have been kind enough to provide testimonials to his work. Please be sure to review the Testimonials Page on his website or feel free contact Dean directly with questions you may have.
