Description

Long overdue, this is a unique book about wildlife photography and the power it has to improve physical and mental well-being. Designed to appeal to a wide range of individuals, from beginners with very little photographic experience through to those further along on their photographic journey, Wildlife Photography offers practical help, tips and insight into the life of a working professional photographer who uses photography to help deal with his PTSD and the physical reminders of his various careers as a soldier, physical training instructor, and police officer.

With some general tips and points about equipment, fieldcraft and techniques, this book seamlessly aligns photography with creative suggestions around mindfulness, well-being and holism to create a blueprint for anyone experiencing poor mental or physical health, and who would like to express themselves creatively in the natural world.

Whether you want to go into your garden to photograph the wildlife there, or head further afield, Wildlife Photography will empower you to take the next step towards regaining your sense of well-being, and improve the quality of your life.
