Finland-A True Wilderness

Filed in Places Of Interest, Workshops on Jul.24, 2017

Finland is one of Europe’s last places of true wilderness, its also the most forested country in Europe with around 70% of the land being covered with trees. Most forests are coniferous and reach so far north that they lay on the same latitudes as Alaska or Central Siberia. Finland is also known as the “Land of a Thousand Lakes”. Most of these lakes are small and shallow but cover vast areas of this amazing country.

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.

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.

The Himalayan Grey Ghost

Filed in Articles, Workshops on Mar.22, 2017

I wanted to try and convey the beauty of the Indian Himalayas, which is home to the extremely rare Snow leopard with the following slideshow. To read my blog about the trip is one thing but I really wanted to take you there visually. I hope this presentation does that in someway while showing you this beautiful yet hostile place.

Tracking a Himalayan Legend

Filed in Articles, Workshops on Feb.23, 2017

This incredible expedition took us to one of the most wonderful and impressive places on Earth – “The roof of the world” as it’s known. It had been over fifteen months almost of planning to make sure everything that could be planned went well. Precarious climbs, steep falls, bone chilling cold and heartwarming sights, just some of the words that come to mind from this incredible trip to the Indian Himalayas searching for the elusive Snow Leopard. I was working with the best team on the ground there, providing me with years of experience and logistical support. Nothing was promised with such a rare big cat but I always believe in what you give to nature , nature will give back to you.

Red Squirrels- Just Adorable

Filed in Wildlife, Workshops on Jan.19, 2017

Red Squirrels are not that common in England due to predators, viruses and changes to the landscape that all pose threats to our native red squirrel. The introduction of the grey squirrel from America is the main reason behind the sharp decline, and one of the most devastating impacts of this is the squirrel pox virus. Grey Squirrels appear to have a natural immunity to this disease but they can be carriers, and if infected grey squirrels live alongside red squirrels they pass on this disease which can be devastating for the red squirrels.
