BirdFair 2017


In just under 20 days (18th - 21st August) I will be attending the 2017 BirdFair, held at Rutland Waters. Here I will be representing the Wild Brown Bear Centre. Finland is undoubtedly one of the best wildlife locations on the planet, and so it really is a fantastic place to visit for wildlife photographers alike.

Myself along with good friends Lauri Luhtaniemi and Harry Read will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding Finnish wildlife/predator photography. We will also be giving away a free holiday to one lucky winner each day of the event, so it really is worth visiting.

Hope to see you there.



European Brown Bear - BBC Wildlife Online Gallery


Myself and good friend Harry Read are both really pleased to share with the BBC Wildlife Magazine (Online section) a gallery titled ‘A year in the life of European brown bears’ featuring images from our ongoing project in the remote Northern Boreal forests of Finland, where the country borders Russia.

Collectively we have spent around 2,000 hours in the field (the equivalent to 83 full 24hr-days), with the anticipation of our next bear sighting. It, therefore, goes without saying that at times this project has been very difficult and frustrating. From large males smashing my remote camera-trap, sweltering mid-summer heat, and below freezing temperatures during early spring. It has certainly been a challenge at times…

The article highlights a number of tips and techniques for photographing urban foxes, particularly throughout the hours of darkness - of I’ve been working extensively on recently (images to be released soon).
