Last week I returned from running two trips out to Skokholm Island. I am glad to say that it remains one of my favourite places in the world. Sharing the island a small group of photographers, over 6,000 puffins, 90,000 manx shearwaters and a host of other seabirds is a real privilege. This year the trips took place a little later and we were rewarded by views of baby puffins, pufflings (!), peeking out at the world for the first time from their burrows. The drama continued at fever pitch as adult puffins brought in sand eels for their growing young, whilst being attacked by gulls and even a peregrine! As soon as the 2016 dates are released I will let you know. If you are not already then sign up to my newsletter on the homepage of the website, that way you get first dibs on the limited places.

The first puffin photography trip in July is now fully booked so I have added another trip between the 10th and 13th July. This has very nearly filled up and I have just two places left so if you’re interested let me know. For more information visit the dedicated page for this trip.
Exciting news!! The Pembrokeshire Wildlife Trust has exclusively allowed me to once again lead a small group of photographers on a puffin trip in July 2015. The trip will take place between the 6th – 10th July 2015 on Skokholm island, off the coast of Wales. Skokholm is limited to just 16 people at a time and as a result it feels incredibly isolated and wild. With 4500 puffins, 2000 razorbills, 45,000 manx shearwater and a multitude of other sea birds the photographic opportunities are almost boundless, it’s really quite an experience and one you won’t forget. For the four day trip including accommodation the cost is a bargain at £295, places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. For lots more information visit the dedicated page for this trip.
The 2015 Kenya trip promises to be a real treat. We’ll be staying at the best lodges and you’ll be guided by the best photographers. We’ll spend 10 days at three of Kenya’s best wildlife sanctuaries capturing the most amazing wildlife experiences. The first two jeeps are now fully booked but there is still space on the final jeep so if you’re interested get in contact soon to avoid disappointment.
For more information please visit the Kenya wildlife photography trip page.
If you have any questions then let me know.
******UPDATE – THIS TRIP IS NOW FULLY BOOKED.******
For some time now people have asked me to set up a photography trip to Africa and I’m pleased to announce that I have organised the ultimate wildlife photography trip to Kenya in April 2015. We’ll be spending 10 days enjoying the most amazing wildlife whilst focusing on getting you the wildlife images that you really want. Every detail of the trip has been tailored to maximise your photographic opportunities: very small group sizes with just four people per landcruiser, photography workshops on a variety of subjects, the best locations selected for wildlife and dedicated photographic tour leaders and local guides throughout. We’ll be staying at the best lodges Kenya has to offer, just check out the independent trip advisor reviews and see what visitors have to say about them. This really will be the trip of a lifetime and I look forward to sharing the experience with the lucky few of you!
You can find out everything you will need to know on the Kenya wildlife photography trip page but as always, if you have any questions just drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve just added some 2014 kingfisher workshop dates and a macro workshop date. You can see more information about the kingfisher workshops here and the macro workshops here.
As many of you know, this year I’ve largely been focusing on photographing and writing a monthly article for Photography Monthly magazine about the wildlife around an oak tree in Norfolk. As the year draws to an end I’m looking to organise the next phase of this project which is carrying out the same concept but with a MASSIVE tree in the Amazon rainforest. Alongside two other photographers, Nicholas Foxton and Tom Ambrose, I will photograph and catalogue an array of species that inhabit and travel around a single tree in the Amazon rainforest. From the ground all the way up to the canopy, 200 feet or more above, we will photograph as many species as we can over two months. We believe photography is a perfect way to inspire people from all walks of life about the wildlife in this area and in turn to motivate them into taking action, whether that be by supporting charities such as the World Land Trust or taking more direct action.
We’re funding our trip in part by offering the TRIP OF A LIFETIME to a small group of photographers at the end of our project. We’re offering a unique opportunity to come and join the 3 of us in the rainforest for 10 days; learning, photographing and participating. You’ll be part of the team whilst out with us and will get to join in on everything and anything you want to, ranging from climbing the tree to photographing birds, frogs and monkeys. More details of the itinerary can be found below.
We have LOADS more information about the project here: http://www.onetreeinabillion.com/the-project/ and here: http://norfolk-wildlife-photography.co.uk/international-tours/amazon-wildlife-photography-tour/
We haven’t advertised the trip yet and we already have four members, if you’re interested in joining us or would like to talk over the trip then drop me an email at email@example.com or call me on 07917 023 490. I hope that a few of you will choose to join us, it will be a fantastic adventure!
I’m happy to announce that my diving kingfisher photography workshop is now ready.
This workshop offers you fantastic repeat opportunities to capture THE shot that everyone wants; a kingfisher diving to catch a fish. The area is carefully set up to provide you with the best opportunities to photograph this amazing behaviour.
The fledglings are currently around and the adults will hang around for another couple of months so get this workshop booked in before it gets too cold!
For more information please visit the diving kingfisher photography workshop page.
It’s fast approaching that time of year again when one of the great wild events of England unfolds; the red deer rut. There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush you get photographing two of these massive animals in action. I will be running a week of photography workshops in October, you can find out more information here or feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been testing out the much anticipated Canon 200-400mm. I’ve put it through it’s paces on my Skokholm puffin trip. I can’t reveal what the verdict is yet but you can read my full review in next months editions of Photography Monthly and Professional Photographer.
I will post my photographs from the Skokholm trip shortly.
