Hello and welcome to our British Wildlife Photography Website - we hope you enjoy your visit .........

Unfortunately our Blog has not been updated for ages ... we just cannot keep up with the photography side and write about it as well! I keep thinking we will get stuff under control ... but it never happens ... so for the time being blogging isn;t going anyplace - despite how it is titled!!!

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 book an illustrated presentation, 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 ........

Jeff I think I replied in email but thanks for looking at our site and reading the blog - I really need to catch up with that! I see that you will have 'landed' on Grimsay yesterday - hoping that the weather - which is dire in North Lancs - is a bit better out in the isles!! Looking forward to your news ....

A long time since my last, visit but well worth coming back, you have both created superb images as always.

Hi Pauline, just spent a very enjoyable half-hour reading your 'report' of your last trip to the Uists. You may remember us from WAB, we posted as jeffnsue, mainly orchids and we're off to stay on Grimsay for a week starting 25th July 2015. We're going with our chums Sue and Clive, he posted exquisite moth photos on WAB as CEJ.

We're looking for Irish Lady's Tresses and Hebridean Marsh Orchid but Clive will be taking his moth trap too and the bird life there looks a delight too, can't wait to see all those raptors and divers, not to mention skuas and corncrakes. Do you have any tips on the best orchid sites on the Uists and Barra?

Where are you posting photos now WAB has gone, Clive and I are using the gallery on BirdForum, essentially as a means of sharing photos with each other.

All the best
Jeff Hodgson
