This is a 368 page, full colour guide to 70 of the best places in the UK to photograph wildlife with 450 photographs, tips on technique and information both on the locations and the species you are likely to see there. I hope it is a useful and interesting book for any aspiring or already succesful wildlife photographer. I am delighted to say the forward is by the naturalist and presenter Iolo Williams from BBC Springwatch !
Iolo Williams says :
How I wish this book had come out 30 years ago! Andrew Marshall has packed so many stunning images, so many tips and so much knowledge between two covers that I genuinely didn't know where to start. This is a man at the peak of his profession, a brilliant photographer who has learned his craft by spending untold hours out in the field. To be a great photographer, you must get to know your subject intimately; study its behaviour, its habits and its preferences, look for its favoured perches or resting sites, get out at all hours in all weather. Andrew has done all of these things and more, and the fruits of his labour are here for all to see.
This book is a wildlife photographer's bible. It tells you some of the best places to go to see particular species, gives tips on fieldcraft, techniques and equipment. It travels the whole country from the northernmost tip of Shetland down to Brownsea Island and from Skomer in west Wales across to East Anglia. Although it concentrates on the spectacular and the photogenic, it does not neglect the commoner species and it will prove invaluable to beginners and experienced wildlife photographers alike.
You cannot help but be impressed by Andrew's knowledge and ability. His images are beautiful, his writing concise and succinct. I have been enthralled by this book, so much so that it has inspired me to pick up my camera once more and venture out into that enthralling playground that is the British countryside. What I admire most about the man and his book however, is his continual emphasis on the fact that the wellbeing of the wildlife comes first. As Andrew himself says, a true wildlife photographer takes pictures of wild creatures looking at home in their environment. Bravo!
This is a cracking book and a worthy addition to anyone's bookshelf. Buy it, treasure it and use it.
