About this title


Mapping the locations and describing the natural history of some of the best wildlife habitats of the British Isles, this book also provides tips on field-craft and special photographic techniques. An introduction to the best photographic equipment, clothing, and other kit for wildlife photography, is followed by practical skills for exploring the countryside safely, and a chapter on showing and selling nature photographs. The second part of the book looks at typical habitats, showing their distribution, explaining the wildlife to be found in each, listing details of some of the best sites, and describing which techniques are likely to be most successful in different circumstances. There is an emphasis throughout on enjoying and photographing wildlife without harming it or destroying the environment. The author is a wildlife journalist and photographer whose work has been published in over 50 countries, and he is actively involved in various organizations concerned with bird and wildlife conservation.

From Library Journal:

This large-format book offers useful advice on making a variety of nature photographs. Beginning with the basics, including cameras, lenses, light meters, tripods, and other accessories, as well as film, it then offers a valuable section on outfitting oneself for photographing in the field and on exhibiting and publishing photographs. The book's strength, however, is its approach to photographing by locale: separate chapters are devoted to woodlands, grasslands, wetlands, seacoasts, and mountains. Nicely illustrated with 175 color and black-and-white photographs, the book will have wide appeal, primarily among amateur photographers. Some readers may be a little put off by the emphasis on photographing in the British Isles, but there is good advice from an experienced photographer who clearly respects the natural landscape. For libraries with popular photography collections.?Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.
