David has cover photos on Cornwall Life (national edition) and Cornwall Today in March and April 2019
 
David and Sarah have just spent two weeks in The Seychelles.  They spent five days on Bird Island, three days on La Digue and five on Praslin.  Between exploring the islands David managed to find time to take some wildlife photos.

On the 15th of February David had a day out with friend Chris.  They started with the glossy ibis at Helston, then went to the boating lake where they saw Mediterranean and ring-billed gull, amongst others, and finished at Pentire Point with the short-eared owls and kestrels.  Below are: glossy ibis; herring gull bathing; male kestrel hovering and a compositional shot of a short-eared owl making the most of the last rays of sun on one of its perches.
David has just supplied Land's End hotel with 65 framed photos which are to be hung in their guest's rooms and some of the open spaces.  Here are two of the images chosen:
Over the last two evenings David has been to talk to St Mabyn Gardening Club and Wild Roseland group in St Mawes.  On each occasion he took advantage of the good weather to take some landscape photos nearby.  Below are two photos, one of The Rumps and one from Carne Beach, Roseland.
There have been a few glossy ibises in Cornwall this winter.  This is a bird which breeds in the Mediterranean area; most migrate to Africa for the winter but Cornwall is mild enough and we have plenty of wet grassy areas, which they like.
On Saturday 2nd of February David took a trip to The Cheesewring and took a few snowy photos.
Below are some photos which illustrate points which David will refer to on some workshops he has planned for the next few days:
Try a wide angle lens from very close, maybe using a remote release? Get down low with a telephoto lens and deliberately get things in the way to create blur
Look for quirky shots and be ready with settings for action photography You will need continuous shooting mode and AF continuous as well as fast shutter speed, 1/4000th sec
Look for interesting action and use fast shutter speed in this case 1/2500th sec Try using slower shutter speed to be creative, 1/10th sec (for this try manual focus!)

A sunny afternoon after a period of wind and rain was a good time to visit the short-eared owls, here are a few of the photos David took today.
An afternoon on The Lizard started with sunshine at Kynance Cove but then turned cloudy for some slow shutter speed shots around Lizard Point.
David visited Marazion at dawn with Wadebridge Camera Club.  After photographing The Mount and having breakfast he spent time with the pipits again (rock and water pipits shown below) along with a house sparrow bathing in the car park. 
These three show a sequence from before sunrise to after. 
A day out at Trevose Head and Bedruthan with just a few brief moments of sunlight.
David's photo of Kynance Cove in the snow, taken in February this year is going to be featured on the cover of Cornwall Life, December 2018.  This will feature on the cover of the national edition of Cornwall Life but not the local edition (not sure why that decision was made!).  Inside this magazine (both the local and national editions) David will tell how he planned the day and took the photos which include Church Cove; Lizard Point and Kynance Cove.
David and Sarah have just come back from a trip to Scotland which included Shetland and a week on Fair Isle.  Here is a fairly random selection of photos.
David's photos have been used on the covers of Cornwall Life (October) and Cornwall Today (October and November) 2018
