I’m fortunate to live in an area of Britain with a lot of wild deer around. I’m also close to Woburn Deer Park, where the deer have many acres to roam freely in natural surroundings. This offers a wonderful opportunity to a dedicated and patient photographer, and it’s one of my favourite locations. It’s an oasis of calm in an increasingly urban county, and I’ll often spend a few hours there and come back with no photos to show for it, but the peace and time amongst wildlife is worth it every time.
I tend to concentrated on red deer, as they’re the largest and most spectacular of the deer species I see. In addition to red deer I also photograph sika deer, fallow deer, and muntjac deer, which can be found all over Bedfordshire.
As our largest remaining mammal species, red deer photography is popular with British wildlife photographers, so I try to use light and composition to create an original perspective on these iconic, photogenic creatures.
