Tales, techniques, tricks and tantrums from one of the UK‘s top portrait photographers. Never just about photography but always about things that excite - or annoy - me as a full-time professional photographer - from histograms to history, from apertures to apathy, from motivation to megapixels. Essentially anything that might be useful if you‘re a portrait artist.

Nature or the countryside being sold for only a certain type of person, is something we've spoken about a bit on Into The Wild BUT there was an organisation I wanted to learn more from & that was the UK based bird watching collective for people of colour, Flock Together & who better to speak with other than the co founder, Nadeem Perera. Nadeem not…
 
Something I love about doing this show is finally meeting people that I have spoken with, heard of or been a fan of (or all three) & this episode is exactly that. I finally got the chance to meet & interview birder, naturalist & Leica ambassador Mya Bambrick. Mya has had a super impressive career at such a young age from a conservation background t…
 
I won't lie, this was like having Ant & Dec on the show BUT whilst at Global Birdfair it was great to sit down & talk with 2 people that have featured on the show before & to simply have a good chin wag about nature. Whilst having 2 people on that are under the category of "THE YOUTH", I wanted to grab the chance to ask Indy & George what it feels …
 
This is the first episode recorded LIVE at Global Birdfair 2022! There has been A LOT of talk & action for rewilding (or wilding, whichever you prefer) over the last few years with many different models, but one thing we haven't spoken much about on Into The Wild yet is how to do this......as a business model. Someone who has done this though is co…
 
It's no secret that I love talking about urban & city wildlife. Living in London, I like to shout about the nature that I get to see daily that others, in more rural areas, may not often see. So this week I was super excited to chat to author of Wild City & nature enthusiast Florence Wilkinson. Florence shared the reason why she wanted to create a …
 
Ladybirds are up there with the bumblebee as one of the most loved & celebrated insects. From lovable characters in kids films to being used as designs on kids clothing, you'd be hard to come by someone who doesn't know what one is. Joining me this week to shine some light on these fascinating beetles is president of the Royal Entomology Society, e…
 
In this week's episode, I am talking about how we set up the sale in the shoot - not in the salesroom; the salesroom is where we close the deal. I love this process, and it works, too: happy clients, great images and consistent (and high-value) sales. Perfect. Also, this episode is kindly sponsored by Pioneer Eneloop Batteries. Once again, I am ext…
 
WE ARE BACK! I hope you missed Into The Wild because we missed you! Our annual break is done & now time to write about the show. If you are active on social media & follow nature & conservation content, then some of you may have noticed that animal rights activism is quite often connected with wildlife conservation, but how connected are they? To f…

Well, I'm back in the shed for this episode - love the acoustics in here. Also, the peace and quiet as no-one disturbs me. This week's episode is inspired by an email we received from Bob and Sylvia (two of our lovely listeners) who described how they dragged out their wedding album and what they felt when going through it after fifty years of marr…

Ryan & Oscar are taking 4 weeks off to work on Into The Wild's big project, Beyond The Project. Speak to you in a month!! Farming. A global activity.

We bang on about connecting with nature & the importance to get outside & see. We CONSTANTLY say "people won't protect what they don't know about or love". So when you learn that in England, we (the public) only have access to 8% of the land......makes you a little bit concerned eh? Two people that think this is bonkers & are doing something I love…
 
This episode was recorded in a bar - possibly my favourite but, in contrast to our studio garden - not the quietest place to record audio. But it makes me happy. It was at this year’s incredible Societies of Photographers Convention in London where I spent the week judging and, well, generally feeling liberated from the previous two years of lockdo…

One thing it's easy to forget to do is actually stop & celebrate wildlife. Learn about it & go find it sure, but simply celebrate it or a majestic moment is easy to forget. On this week's episode we are making sure we absolutely do not forget to do that as we sit back & talk with vet, author & fan of the wildlife world, Gill Lewis about the upcomin…

I often think to myself, "nature was in such a better way when I was a kid", which is likely not untrue however, was it great? Was it healthy? Was it rich? Or was it just better than it is now?

Speaking personally, going exploring rockpools on the British coastline filled my childhood holidays & even now as a 32 year old man, I still get the same enjoyment out of lifting a rock to find a shore crab or admiring the many colours of anemones & seaweed. This week's episode is all about rockpools & joining me to go exploring is Ben Holt & Chri…
 
It's late and I'm driving back from a beautiful spring wedding, shot in uncharacteristic April sunshine.

Well nerds, we did, welcome to the 100th episode of Into The Wild. There are many ways I could have celebrated this podcast milestone. A best of episode? A chat with one of my nature hero's?

I think I may have mentioned this before, but I LOVE creating portraits. The past couple of days have been all about headshots - part corporate, part creative branding. Either way, these are just portraits. And that is something that I cannot stress enough: if you're a portrait photographer, creating cool, engaging headshots is no different to crea…

Wildlife evolves to adapt & survive in order to keep going & sometimes thos adaptations can be ending up relying on something we (humans) have created....rarely but sometimes the case. A perfect example of this in the UK is hedgerows. Joining Into The Foliage this month is Key Habitats Officer for People's Trust for Endangered Species, Megan Gimber…
