Tell better stories…

Join me on the Canon stand at the British Birdfair for seminars on telling wildlife stories with your camera. Every day from Friday the 17th to Sunday the 19th of August I will be talking through the shots I have to get and the decisions I have to make to tell award-winning stories and keep my editors happy. Download the seminar schedule here

As a Canon photographer, I will be showing just why my equipment choice allows me to work on books and magazine features while thinking about my online audience at the same time. During the seminars I will be trying to convince you to photograph more than just pretty wildlife portraits.

Having just returned from promoting my new African wild dog book Underdogs and picking up an award in the International Conservation Photography Awards in the United States, I will be revealing the importance of being able to photograph wildlife, landscapes and people to pulling together a project that matters. You will also have the chance to ask me your questions on equipment, the industry and how I captured the work that I will be showing you.

This year’s Birdfair will also see me delivering a lecture on the Limpopo Valley on Sunday the 19th in marquee 2 and spending time on the Estonia Nature Tours stand to talk about my upcoming 2013 photo tour in partnership with leading Estonian photographer Remo Savisaar. See the tour itinerary here.

Remember that a signed copy of Underdogs is also available in the Birdfair auction. See you there…

    I really enjoyed listening to Neil at yesterday’s Bird Fair event at Rutland, Leicestershire. He gave some great tips on how to take shots with your target audience in mind and how to tell a story with the images. Thank you!

      Hi Sheona. I’m so glad that you enjoyed my talk and took something away from it. I hope I managed to get across the importance of shooting for an audience what an editor’s looking for. Thank you for attending and for enduring the hottest day of the year. We will have to think about rigging up some fans for next year!! All the best, Neil

        My photo of a puffin got selected to appear in the March edition of the ministry of justice bio diversity website. I was so happy.
