I have been overwhelmed by the response to our latest photo challenge: Wildlife Silhouettes. Take a look at the often-beguiling images from just some of our talented readers and followers.
With the book launch for Remembering Lions this month, Wild Planet catches up with professional wildlife photographer, Federico Veronesi, whose remarkable lion portrait gives dramatic impact to both the book cover and our October issue. Read our interview to find out about his involvement in the ‘Remembering’ series, his views on conservation and the approach behind his incredible images.
Anyone who has watched or read the epic true story of ‘Gorillas in the Midst’ will know just how vulnerable mountain gorillas are. Read on to discover how you can achieve a truly extraordinary encounter with these great apes, as photographer, Kathleen Ricker, explains what to expect when taking on such an adventure.
Also this month, we share part two of Understanding Video, by wildlife photographer and tour guide, Mark Sisson, who looks into the main considerations when shooting video, adding another useful bow to your wildlife photography skill-set.
Wild Planet is very pleased to share the winning entries from the British Wildlife Photography Awards 10. To mark its tenth anniversary and help raise awareness about the British coast, BWPA have expanded the Coast and Marine category to include British and Irish Coastlines within four separate categories; Wales, Scotland, England, and Northern Ireland & the Coast of Ireland.
Next month we would like to see your autumnal wildlife images in our seasonal feature - Autumn Visions, which you can enter here. Don’t forget, you can also enter any of your latest wildlife images into our regular reader features, which you can find on our submissions page.
