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.
I’m pleased to announce that I will be giving a talk at this years Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham on the Great Outdoors stage.Its a fantastic stage in which too talk from and inspire those there with how I try and use my heart and camera too help wildlife.
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.
WildPhotos 2009is a UK-based conservation charity working to promote conservation through wildlife imagery and media and yesterday I traveled to The Royal Geographical Society in London to spend the day listening to the many great wildlife photographers who give up their time for this great cause.They take you through their present work,share their knowledge and offer insights into ‘Life In The Field’
I was very impressed by all the work and met up with some photographers I’ve met over time.The day started at 9.30am and went until 6.00pm with lunch included, and it was brilliant and would recommend anyone who has a interest in the natural world to go next year. My two favorite shows where by‘Britta Jaschinski’ and ‘Vincent Munier’.
Britta photography’s wildlife in an unconventional way using black and white to convey their beauty.The images that made the most impact for me where the haunting images of animals in confined spaces resulting in here book called Zoo breathtaking images.Vincent Munier’spresentation was nothing short of breathtaking where he showed a series of some of his finest work with a beautiful soundtrack of operatic music.
I love his distinctive style of photography,so simple and breathtaking to view.He told me that he regards photography as a way of remaining close to nature and his images as having great power to move people,his approach,and manner is inspiring and for me he is the best wildlife photographer around. Click on his name and it will take you to his sight and just enjoy.
I had a brillant time and I wish everyone I met all the best and I hope thatWildPhotosgoes from strength to strength.
