Seal Of Approval - RSPCA
Recently I was offered an amazing opportunity to spend the day with the amazing and enormously dedicated team members of the RSPCA East Winch Centre, based in Norfolk, UK. The aim of the day was to document the crew releasing 7 Grey Seals back into the wild, which had originally been brought into the centre for various unfortunate reasons during the winter months, shortly after being born along the exposed and windswept east coast. I felt enormously privileged to witness the release of the Seals, and was further privileged enough to release one of the Seals myself, which was an amazing moment and one that I certainly won't be forgetting anytime soon!
This was my first ever attempt at wildlife photojournalism, an area of photography I’ve always said I would really like to venture further into, as I strongly feel photography can be an important media for expanding public awareness of wildlife stories that needs sharing. Having no background in this genre I found the whole process a great pleasure and learning curve.
It's really difficult to portray a story through a body of still images and so I was really working hard in ensuring my work portrays the day through my eyes as an observer/photographer. Anyway I’ve finally got round to uploading a gallery to the website, which features the images/story of the day, this can be viewed by clicking HERE...
A special thanks must be said to the amazing workers at the RSPCA East Winch Centre for making the day such an enjoyable and privileged experience!
