Last week I was in Arne, Dorset to photograph these amazing spiders. I always liked how they varied some much in size and colour. I photographed them using my field studio at the side of the pond where they can be found.
Earlier this year I entered the ‘Emerging Talent Award’ run by the Federation of European Photographers . The European award is for graduating students and young photographers and involves submitting a unified collection of fifteen images, which In my case were all natural history themed. (See selection below)
The results are now in and I’m delighted to say I have received a merit award for an outstanding submission. The award ceremony is to take place at Photokina 2014 in Cologne, Germany.
Congratulations to Anna Rasmussen as the Overall winner and also to the other students who received merit awards!
I have very recently arrived back from a two week trip to florida. My time was spent exploring the natural history of the south.
It truly is a remarkable place to visit if you get the chance. This is the first of several uploads to come, so watch this space!
