I thought it would be interesting to share with my readers where my journey started and provide a glimpse of my photographic practice prior to starting the course. Perhaps the best way of doing this would be to show my portfolio that I submitted as part of my application for the MA Photography.

“In 2011 I visited Kenya and Rwanda and then travelled on to South Africa to work as a volunteer photographing wildlife to support a project helping children to understand more about the wildlife on their doorstep. On my return I submitted a successful panel of fifteen images for an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) (Professional & Applied).

Following two trips to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica I worked on the portfolio below with the intention of showcasing the character and diversity of the wildlife and the scale and nature of the landscape in these extreme environments. I intend to donate these images to the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge for charitable purposes.”

Magellanic Penguins, Gypsy Cove, Falkland Islands

Black Browed Albatross Colony, West Point, Falkland Islands

Magellanic Penguins, Saunders Island, Falkland Islands

King Penguins at Right Whale Bay, South Georgia

King Penguin Colony at Rosita Harbour, South Georgia

Adelie Penguin, Shingle Cove, South Orkney Islands

Elephant Seal Pups, Shingle Cove, South Orkney Islands

Gentoo Penguin, Pleneau Bay, Antarctica

Porpoising Gentoo, Cuverville Island, Antarctic Peninsula

Chinstrap Penguins, Half Moon Island, South Shetlands, Antarctica

Orne Point, Antarctica

Comparing these wildlife images with my current work I think you will see a major change both in the subject, approach and production of my work.  A couple below to remind you:

The Little House in the Cuillin

Reed Beds at Cille Chroisd

Clouds over the Cuillin

I do miss the thrill of taking wildlife . . .
