To see us into the festive period we have some fantastic articles and reader features to grab your attention. I am also delighted to present something new - Magical Macro: where we exhibit your extreme close-up wildlife images. Submit your own entries here for a chance to win our 3-issue membership.
Our December issue also sees us highlighting International Cheetah Day (December 4th) in a bid to promote global awareness of our beloved wildlife around the world. Cheetahs, sadly, are not immune to the impacts of habitat loss and conflict with humans, making them Africa’s most endangered big cat.
This month we are pleased to present two articles; Brian P. Slade reveals his top tips for photographing the wildlife we can search out on our doorstep. We can also read professional wildlife photographer John Marriott’s account of photographing bears in the wild, where he tells us why there is still a need to safeguard their future in British Columbia. Look out for WPM’s book review of John Marriott’s latest book release Tall Tales, Long Lenses: My Adventures in Photography, in the January 2019 issue.
Lorna Dockerill interviews Brook Peterson; an inspiring underwater photographer and blog author who has a nudibranch species named after her.
Along with all of this, we showcase some of the winning wildlife images from the 9th British Wildlife Photography Awards (2018), of which the 2019 awards are now open for entry.
So, after all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness, what better time to settle down with a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie, and bury yourself in our riveting December issue.
While you take a break over the festive period, why not submit your entries to our Winter Visions reader competition, where you could win a VIP membership, priced at £48. We want to see your best seasonal wildlife images yet.
Until next month, all of us at WPM would like to wish you a warm and joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year with family and friends.
