ZSL Award

Afternoon all!

Well it has been quite a week for me on the competition front. Having already scooped a highly commended at this years BWPA awards I am pleased to announce I managed a win in this year’s ZSL (London Zoo) awards!

The good old fighting Eagles have done it again and bagged me the win in the ‘Perfect Moment’ category. Needless to say it is a great thrill to win and see my work large and on display for all to see at the zoo. If you are in the area before the year is out, please swing by and have a look. I received many nice comments from those at the events and loved the reaction of the kids there when they saw it! I do believe wildlife photography can have a huge impact on young people as it did me and love nothing more than hopefully playing a part in inspiring them. I hope at least a few of them will carry that wonder on as they grow older as I did!!

It was also great to see some fantastic young talent entering and doing well in the competition, a good outlook indeed for the genre.

There was however a group that didn’t seem to interested in all the goings on…
