Johnny the photographer

I also love taking photographs of the wildlife on Exmoor.  It takes some patience mind.  I may have to search for weeks for the animal or bird I’m after and wait for hour after hour for just the right shot.  Like when I finally got my photo of a cuckoo.  What a proud moment that was.

Over the years I’ve learnt to find the right spot and let the wildlife come to me rather than chasing it all over the moor.  Same with my filming.  Often I’m camouflaged right up in my gillie suit so I blend in with the landscape.  Sometimes I’ll be up a tree or in one of my hides.

My most popular photos are of the red deer, especially the stags, and the badgers.  Do take a look at my gallery to see what else I love to photograph.
