Hello and welcome to our British Wildlife Photography Website - we hope you enjoy your visit .........
The latest updates by Zenfolio allowing images to be displayed larger on the website is simply fantastic - shots are larger and the impact is greater with more detail on view! Thanks goes again to 'Zenny'!!
Our Blog 'Going Places' is up and running and Ian is in charge of it though I butt in and hi-jack it occasionally!!! One of the benefits is being able to display photos at a larger size as well as chat and tell stories about happenings when out with the camera! Click on Blog at the top of this page and 'read all about it!'
You can click on any of the images and go straight in or to see the various categories click on the FOX IN BRITISH WILDLIFE (ALL PHOTOGRAPHS) and this brings up all the various galleries. Don't forget to press F11 for optimum screen viewing, plus the slideshow option within the galleries is now full screen and shows fantastic detail! The images on this site are devoted to British Wildlife and landscapes feature too as Pauline has an eye for a view! A silly section seems to be taking on a life of its own in the People Pix gallery.........
Pauline started photography in earnest 44 years ago......... Ian came a little later to this passion - 23 years back. Wildlife photography has steadily taken over our lives and our pockets........ Pauline went digital in 1999 with a Fuji Finepix. In 2004 we made the switch from Pentax K1000's and slide film to Canon digital SLR's and what had been an ongoing interest ballooned into an obsession! Since then its been pretty predictable: the shower leaks - new shower or new lens - enter the 400 prime ......... the cladding on the house still needs replacing - cladding or lens? - enter the 500!! Pauline retired suddenly from work at the beginning of April 09 to take on full-time care of her mother - not retirement at all then .... 'watching her decline into senile dementia has convinced me I may not live compus mentis into old age - so I have decided to blow my savings!' Enter the 600 prime for him and an upgrade to 40D for me! The cladding still needs replacing ........ its all about priorities .... (the shower has finally been replaced and the hole in the kitchen ceiling filled - with a new ceiling!! Its not been painted yet - well there's no rush is there?!) Eventually a 7D apeice have been added to the stable. In Jan '12 Pauline bit the bullit and bought a 1Dmk4 ... its been fun getting used to it! The latest lens to be added to the stable is a 400 f5.6 as Pauline admits to not being able to carry the 500 very far since turning 60 ... Further additions are the 1Dx and a 7Dmk2 ... the idea now is to share these cameras between us both dependant on what job are doing ... its no longer a case of this is my camera and that is yours - we mix and match horses for courses!
Pauline say's..... 'The website is 9 years old now and over nine thousand images, with viewing figures keeping pace. We need to get out more with the camera and that might happen now. Ian was made redundant (Sept 2012) so we are looking forward to no more interference from that thing called 'work'! We're hoping for a few good photography years together - we might even take up fishing again!
The New Links are now accessed from the top menu bar of the home page! Once again broken links have been removed - if you think you have disappeared off our list please email your link. Expect a few changes over the coming months as some 'tinkering' with the site seems attractive ... and the newly unemployed Ian is going to fill his time writing our 'Going Places' blog!
We say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who takes the time to browse and leave comments - its good to know you are OUT THERE!
If you would like to purchase a print, enquire about editorial use or just more information about any of our images please email using send message link on this page .... thanks! Plus we love to hear from you too if you wish to leave us comments on selected pics or in any of the guest books then please do ........
Thanks Anne - so glad the show went down well - perhaps see all of you with another show next year or drop across you out birding somewhere! Kind Regards, Pauline
Hi Pauline, We really enjoyed your talk at Blackburn Bird Club the other night; your photographs were absolutely stunning. Now I have found your web site and I have bookmarked it - so therapeutic looking at all the beautiful images you have captured! Hope you will return with another talk soon, Anne Wilkinson. PS. Thanks for emailing that phone number.
Hi Ian just looking at your fantastic Snipe pics
Hi Pauline! Believe me! I have never seen something like this before. I can imagine the kind of effort you have been taking to take these photos. It has come off really well. Do keep up the good work! http://www.aplusjanitorial.com
