Georgia O’Keefe – Tate Modern

Georgia O’Keefe – Tate Modern

I had been eagerly anticipated Georgia O’Keefe exhibition and I was not disappointed. This was a vast collection of work spanned across the whole of the artist’s career.

Photographing Adders (Vipera berus)

Adders will only use their venom as a last means of defence

The adder is not an aggressive snake, but is the only venomous snake native to Britain.

Scorpion Flies, Dragonflies and Beetles

Small creatures

The colourful micro world that lives below and flies above us can be intriguing to photograph due to all of natures fine detail.

Photographing what is in your Garden

Common Toad

I recently photographed “toad of toad hall”! Well I like to think so because I grew up listening to voiceovers by Johnny Morris on Animal Magic, who added human characteristic to all animals and creatures he met.

Victoria Hillman Zoologist And Wildlife Photographer

Wildlife and Nature Photography

I caught up with Victoria Hillman a scientist by training with a BSc in zoology and a self-taught photographer. We discussed Victoria’s current project “Forgotten Little Creatures” and I ask how she approached wildlife photography.

Wildlife off the U.K coast

Puffins, Puffins and more Puffins… oh and a rabbit

The beautiful island of Skomer is set just off the Welsh coast. It is a scenic and tranquil Wildlife trust reserve, which is well worth visiting.

Miniature world

44ad Art space

44ad Art space in Bath will be holding their summer open show from 8th August – 23rd August 2014. I have had some of my work excepted for the exhibition which is entitled “Life in miniature”

Hover Fly

Macro test

The Hover fly is one of the more favourable inhabitants for any garden, as it preys upon pest insects. The Hover fly will perfectly suspend itself, silently looking where its next pollen search will be. It is this stationary position, which makes it a good subject to photograph.

Five-spot Burnet Moth

The midday sun glowed in the sky and the light breeze patted me on my back as I climbed Cley Hill. The botanically rich mound is a naturists delight full of wild flowers, which act as high-rise flats to the swarm of insects that inhabit the hilltop.
