News from Gavin Bickerton-Jones Photography


I went to a stream that I've not visited for a while and a couple of Kingfishers flew past, so I found a place to hide down that looked like a fishing spot and waited. After about an hour a juvenile male stopped and spent 10 minutes going from branch to branch in the afternoon sun. I just kept still and he seemed happy for me to snap away, allowing me to get some nice images.

  

I went back again a couple of times in the early morning and the 2 parents flew by, with the female perching for a short while every time in the morning sun. I could see them flying across the field from the nest site, and at one point she stopped for a rest on the phone wires, which was quite comical!

      

She took a big fish from the stream which she couldn't quite swallow, I am going to try and make a diving area with some fish to get some nice diving shots if they stay around. The next morning she was there again for just a few minutes, again in nice sunlight and I got some nice shots in the breeze.

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 ! ...
