Through Nature's Eyes
A myriad of inspiring content from superb photographers awaits this month to help you seize those photo opportunities during the last days of summer. For those hoping to shake up their technique and their kitbag, award-winning nature photographer Chris Schmid could help you see things differently. We turn to him for a thought provoking insight into drone photography, must-know portfolio tips and how to create those breathtaking environmental wildlife vistas.
Another pressing issue on many wildlife photographers’ lips is conservation. Do conservation and wildlife photography go hand in hand? Photographers in this issue will offer an answer.
Wildlife and conservation photographer Matt Stirn visits Sumatra to photograph the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan, while Jared Lloyd pens his latest journal from the hide documenting what must be one of the most photogenic birds – Screech Owls. Plus, we get to know the current Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year, Gordon Rae, who showcases his award-winning Osprey image and many more.
Besides all this, it’s our readers we’d like to thank for continually sending us so many fantastic photos month on month. We’ve packed as many as we can into this issue, but we’re always on the lookout for fresh talent so please keep them coming.
