Conservation with a Camera

Filed in Events on Nov.30, 2018

I’ve just returned from Wex Photo Video​ London HQ, I’d been invited there to give my “Conservation with a Camera”talk. From the moment I first picked up a camera I’ve always wanted to show the beauty of nature and also the not so beautiful things we as humans do to nature and are responsible for. By using my own life experiences, skills and my background I show how my camera speaks for those that cannot speak for themselves.

Professional Imagemaker

Filed in Articles on Oct.02, 2018

In October’s issue of Professional Imagermaker I have an article published on light, more so side and back lighting within wildlife photography.

Instead I use my own flare and passion, then I ask the camera to “write” or capture what I see.  I work with very simple settings, and use them alongside my camera to express and communicate what I’m seeing and watching on the ground at that time.

Incoming

Filed in Places Of Interest, Workshops on Sep.01, 2018

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 the Autumn and Winter months.

Hen Harrier Day 2018

Filed in Events on Aug.12, 2018

Hen Harrier day 2018 was celebrated all over the country with many events staggered over two weekends 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.
