British Wildlife Photography Awards 2010

British Wildlife Photography Awards

Earlier this week I received an email notifying me that I’ve been shortlisted in the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2010.

This “international photography competition, the BWPA was established to celebrate and recognise the talents of photographers of all nationalities practicing in the UK, while at the same time highlight the great wealth and diversity of British natural history.

At a time when we’re increasingly conscious of the importance of wildlife, habitat and conservation, the Awards encourage photographers, whether professional or enthusiast, to explore Britain’s natural and urban environments, and discover its bounty of wildlife, from birds to mammals, insects to marine life”.

Murmurations

Murmurations is a short film is inspired by my documentary photography project Starlings Above which won third place in the Fine Art – Natural History professional category of the Sony World Photography Awards 2009. This short film was captured using a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM in Blackpool between December 2009 to January 2010.

The music is entitled ‘On The Clock Face’ and is kindly used courtesy of Raikes Parade.
