Wildlife needs you ...

"A chance to Help and Learn"

UK wildlife photographer Andy Rouse is giving a 1 hour Zoom talk at 19.30 on Friday 29th May on his Top 20 African Wildlife images.

If you have attended one of his sessions before you will know that, as well as being an outstanding photographer, he is a great teacher and entertaining speaker.

It's £10 to attend, and all the income is going to support the charity Community Wildlife Fund for Kenya, which has been set up during the pandemic to re-employ laid-off wildlife guides and equip and train them for antipoaching operations.

To attend Andy's session be sure to click here and purchase your ticket at the very top of Andy's fundraising page.



Please share this with anyone you know who might want to support the cause, even if they are not interested in wildlife photography, especially during Lockdown.

Something for the Weekend

"Wildlife or Travel?"

One of the very few advantages of COVID-19 is that a lot more videos have been recorded by top photographers. Two of the several that I have seen this week might make enjoyable viewing for you, if not giving you some tips for your own photography.

The first is the latest episode in Andy Rouse's "Wild Angle" series where you will enjoy a taste of his new e-Talk and Webinar series (which are booking up rapidly). In these he teaches his techniques in shooting some of his stunning images -



Secondly, the RPS has been recording some interviews with its Fellows. David Noton FRPS, one of our best known travel photographers, gives an insight to his thinking when creating his iconic images.




Please share these with anyone you know who might benefit from these recordings, especially during Lockdown.
