News from Gavin Bickerton-Jones Photography


Nice morning spent in Rutland at a trout farm that is visited by the Ospreys from Rutland water. One turned up at 6AM and perched in a tree for a while, before eventually diving in and leaving with a nice juicy trout for breakfast. Unfortunately the light wasn't fantastic which made getting decent photos difficult, and as there are no chicks to feed yet they only need one fish to start the day. The light never improved over the next 3 hours and we had no more visits so couldn't hone our skills, but still great to see the power and accuracy of the bird as it got his meal. Dropped into Thetford on the way back and the male Kingfisher spent 5 minutes fishing on the side of the river in good view. Still cold and dull light, but got some nice photos on different perches. Thanks to Andy 'Chester' Brown for the tip off and driving there.

RPS Recognition!

I entered this picture of a Barn Owl into a Royal Photographic Society competition not really expecting much, but was surprised to be informed that it was one of the winners and would be the RPS website header for the day! So all day today my photo has been the front page on their website, still cant quite believe it!...

LRPS Award

Pleased to be awarded a Licentiate distinction from the Royal Photographic Society today. To get an LRPS you have to have a panel of 10 images assessed for technical ability and quality at the RPS in Bristol. My panel is above. They go into a lot of detail, and my first application in October was turned down as 2 images had distracting backgrounds and 2 others needed small adjustments, so i re-applied with 2 new images and changes to the other 2 and was succesfull ! ...
