After spending a few weeks at the beginning of the year out in Kenya, my latest assignment was in search of Tigers in India.
Taken in April, this image is the culmination of one months work on location. I knew that taking an image of a Tiger that I would be happy with would be very difficult as the jungle is a very cluttered environment unlike the plains of East Africa. I was looking for an image that was all about the animal itself, engaging and powerful without distraction.
Finding a Tiger at times can be hard enough, especially one in the right place. Days of driving, waiting, listening without anything productive until we found this beautiful female in the perfect spot.
Although I could not make the award ceremony in Italy I was pleased to see my image titled ‘The Hunt’ was awarded in the Asferico 2018 International Photography Awards.
This sinister image was taken back in February 2017 whilst on location in Kenya.
Spring Workshop Review
After running a series of Beginners Workshops at the start of the year my attention then turned to my Spring Workshops which included both the Kingfisher Photography Workshop and the Bird Of Prey Workshop.
We were blessed with great light at times for our Bird Of Prey session, photographing a range of birds from Little Owl to Long Eared Owl. I will be running this day again in 2019 and the date will go on the website in the next few weeks. Please let me know if you would like me to email you the date in advance.
The Spring Kingfisher Workshops saw great activity coming back and forward in front of the hide. This female was feeding her young and so it is looking positive that the fledglings will emerge during the Summer workshops.
