I am delighted to announce two of my images have been awarded Highly Commendeds in the prestigious British Wildlife Photography Awards this year.
The above image, entitled ‘Rest in Peace’ of a Roe deer in a hard winter’s frost and awarded a Highly Commended in the Urban category, is from a project I have been quietly working away on in a churchyard close to home pretty much exclusively over the last year. The rest of the images from the project will be showcased exclusively in the UK’s leading photography magazine at the end of this year. It has been a magical experience and I can’t wait for everyone to see what I’ve been up to.
The second image, ‘Fields of Gold’ of an adult female Roe deer standing in barley and awarded a Highly Commended in the Habitat category comes from my continuing long term project documenting the lives of this most beautiful and beguiling of our species of native deer. You can see more images from the project in my previous blog ‘Days of Summer’. This image featured amongst the winners in The Sunday Times Magazine.
Congratulations to all of the other successful entrants this year and I look forward to seeing a few old friends at this year’s awards ceremony at the Mall galleries on 16th September 2015.
‘The British Wildlife Photography Awards Collection 6′ from AA Publishing showcasing images from this year’s competition is out now.
