The darling buds of May
As promised in our May issue, we have our Spring Visions photo challenge to fill your senses; with blue skies and fresh, bright colours. Wild Planet is pleased to share our favourite reader entries.
Diver and underwater photographer, Laura Storm, delivers an in-depth interview with Paul Colley, winner of the 2018 British Wildlife Photography Awards. Paul reveals his photographic approach, behind the picture insights and why it matters to go that extra mile for the animals we share our planet with. One of Paul’s images also graces our May issue cover: ‘Sinuous Silky’ - A Silky Shark making a close pass, Jardine de la Reina, Cuba.
Most of the earth’s wildlife is now facing environmental pressures. Wildlife photographer, Paul Hobson, questions whether our photography is actually doing any real good and goes on to explain how using photography as a tool, within conservation projects, can really make a difference.
We have all experienced those renowned wildlife hot-spots, full of tourists jostling for a chance to get the perfect shot. Wildlife photographer and tour guide, Mark Sisson, argues that, with a little homework and some good planning, they are still worth a visit.
Our May issue Wild Location takes us to Makalali Game Reserve, in South Africa, where Wild Planet reader, Stephen Smith, retells his experience on safari and the valuable lessons he learned in the process.
Wild Planet are very pleased to introduce the first winning entry from our new reader feature Where the Wild Things Live: a platform to showcase your images depicting wildlife within their environment.
