George Wheelhouse | Fine Art Nature Photography | Deer


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 concentrate 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 amongst British wildlife photographers, so I try to use light and composition to create an original perspective on these iconic, photogenic creatures.
