Hello! Thank you for visiting the website, where I will be uploading my attempts at wildlife photography!
I have always had an interest in animals and nature so, after getting a camera for my 21st birthday, I decided to start trying out wildlife photography. The shots I take are very amateur, but hopefully you will enjoy them!
I started the blog shortly after graduating in June 2012. After the stress of exams, I realised I had a lot more free time and decided to spend it expanding my interests. So I spent time exploring the local countryside in Norfolk, before I moved to London to start my new job. This was a completely new environment for me and I learnt a lot about urban wildlife in my time there. Now I am back in Cambridge, where I went to university, and am seeing it as a resident rather than student!
The camera I use is a Sony DSC-HX20V, which was a present for my 21st birthday. It’s not as good as the cameras usually used by wildlife photographers, and I have sometimes found myself limited by the lens, but it is still a really good camera. It is lightweight and small, so I can carry it around easily and quickly set it up to take a photo when I see an opportunity. It is also quite quick for a digital camera, allowing me to take photos in an instant, without waiting for it to focus.
I try to go out every couple of weeks to take some photos. Cambridge is surrounded by fens, so I’m hoping for a lot of fen wildlife! I am also looking forward to a three week trip in July to see friends in Hong Kong, Malaysia and Brunei!
