I have recently been honoured with the title "Landscape Photographer of the Year" for my winning image of Starling Vortex - a photograph which captures a starling murmuration around the ruins of Brighton’s West Pier.
Comedy Wildlife Photo Awards, Angela Bohlke from the USA snatched the top prize in both the Overall and On the Land categories with her entertaining picture of a fox face-planting in the snow, which she captured in Yellowstone National Park.
The Bornean orangutan was officially listed as critically endangered, there is no doubt that orangutans are on the edge of extinction. Tim Laman, winner of both the Wildlife Photographer of the Year and The Wildlife Photojournalist Award Story, shows in his tragically beautiful images the story so far.
A young male orangutan makes the 30-metre (100-foot) climb up the thickest root of the strangler fig that has entwined itself around a tree emerging high above the canopy. The backdrop is the rich rainforest of the Gunung Palung National Park, in West Kalimantan, one of the few protected orangutan strongholds in Indonesian Borneo.
Ever since I was little I’ve always been extremely competitive. It was this competitive nature which got me into photography. Once a year in my early teens, we would have family holiday. My stepdad was tasked with capturing the images from these trips, so he would be seen flaunting his expensive looking film camera everywhere we went!
