Nat Geo WILD – Photo Ark

Filed in Articles, In the Press on Oct.20, 2017

Recent evidence suggests that Planet Earth is at the beginning of its sixth mass extinction event, the most rapid loss of species since dinosaurs were wiped out 65 million years ago. The disappearance of thousands of plant and animal species, caused almost entirely by human activity, will have serious ecological, economic and social consequences, experts have warned.

Filed in Articles, Events on Aug.20, 2017

I have just returned from a couple of wonderful days at this years British Birdwatching Fair in Rutland. It was my first time there as an speaker after many years going as a visitor and an exhibitor back in 2010. I was invited there by the fair itself  to do my talk “Conservation with a Camera” The talk covered how I use my camera too help wildlife here in the UK and around the world.  My talk went down really well I thought with lots of interest and questions from the audience afterwards.

Hen Harrier Day 2017

Filed in Articles, Events on Aug.06, 2017

Harrier Day 2017 was celebrated all over the country with ten events over the weekend marking this special day. Since the first Hen Harrier day back in 2014 this event has gone from strength to strength as the public have become more aware of the cruelty on our moorlands. The destructive nature of driven grouse shooting on the lead up to, during and after is killing so much wildlife and leaving us with a controlled, managed landscape that only benefits the landowners.

Wildlife Photography – In the Field

Filed in Articles, Workshops on Jun.15, 2017

The beauty of photographing wildlife is that it is always changing and evolving, encountering the unexpected. In this environment the photographer must learn to work with these changing environmental conditions and behaviours, and the result cannot always be predicted. For me this only adds to the excitement of wildlife photography. Its been a really busy period for one to ones and workshops with clients over the last several weeks. Here are a few images from the field I took alongside them all, as well as a few from my own project.

Durrells Underhogs

Filed in Articles, In the Press on May.12, 2017

After a few days in a specially built holding area the door was pulled back and a family of captive born Pygmy Hogs took their first steps into the wild. They paused for a moment, then the adult male led them all out. This was the image that captured that moment I still remember fondly from last May in Assam, India. Critically endangered in the wild this breeding program is trying to ensure these wonderful and enduring Pygmy Hogs don’t go extinct.

Spring Has Sprung

Filed in Articles, Workshops on Mar.28, 2017

The onset of spring cannot be denied now, with the warming temperatures, lighter evenings and the morning dawns becoming earlier. Spring is upon us, though there maybe many false dawns before the days of frost and grey fog are behind us. Spring is one of the four seasons and my favourite. It’s the period between winter and summer, and for me the words Spring and Springtime bring thoughts of life, birth and regrowth to our countryside.
