A sizeable book of stunning images
Reviewer: Phil Pickin
IT’S that time of year again when the British Wildlife Photography Awards are made and as a result the seventh volume of images has
The awards began back in 2009 with the aim of recognising the talents of UK-based photographers while showing British wildlife at its best. In doing so the hope is that the beauty of the wildlife that surrounds us will engage with a wider audience and thereby promote the conservation of our natural heritage.
A national exhibition tours the country to display the stunning images and they also become part of a sizeable book which would impress anyone who enjoys wildlife or photography. This coffee table book shows not only the winning images but also many of the commended submissions made by both amateur and professional photographers.
If you are interested in wildlife this book will provide you with not only amazing shots but may also inspire you to take up a camera and see what images you can capture. If not you might just want to find out more about the subjects themselves and their habitats.
For photographers there is that all-important technical information on each image making it a very useful book if you are interested in emulating the work on show.
Who knows next year one of this year’s readers could well be in print in volume 8! If you are interested then visit the BWPA’s website at www.bwpawards.org to find out more information or to order the book.
The British Wildlife Photography Awards: Collection 7 is published by the AA and costs £12 direct from the BWPA’s website.
