From the beginning as a wildlife photographer I’ve photographed the beauty of the natural world and also the not so beautiful things I see. Producing thought provoking images to try and bring an awareness to the public of what is happening to the natural world on our watch. It’s very important to me to show the full story not just the nice side.
Our seasons are changing now from summer into autumn, the nights are drawing in and the light and colours are stunning as the sun becomes lower in the sky. Its a great time to be out with your camera, providing you with some of the most beautiful and intense colours of the year.
There a few places in the UK where you can experience the sights and sounds of nature any better than the North Norfolk coast during the Spring tides that start in earnest from this month onward and for me herald the onset of Autumn and Winter.
Birdfair is an amazing celebration of nature and an action packed and fun event to attend. Tens of thousands of people visit the event each year. Now in its 31st year, this is the biggest event of its kind in the world.
I was invited onto the Kay Burley show as part of sky news recently. Talking about wildlife photography trips, tourism, ethics and the demand placed on wildlife by those that put money before ethics. Every single person that places their feet in another habitat no matter where it is around the world has a duty of care to that country, its people and more importantly the wildlife was my message.
This year’s Hen Harrier Day 2019 was organised by Wild Justice, with Severn Trent Water, at Carsington Water in Derbyshire. The event was set up in 2014 to celebrate this beautiful bird and highlight the ongoing illegal persecution that it faces on grouse moors throughout the UK.
