Badgers,Fox and birds

Yesterday i went to see my buddy Phil Shaw in Essex, I teamed up with Phil last year in Colorado when we shot the Mountain Goat, Phil is a very technical photographer and has some stunning images on his new website , Phil took me to his 'own' reserve where he has worked for many years, He has transformed the place for wildlife and his hard work and dedication has really paid of, In a few hours we had taken both fox and badger and at one point we had 4 badgers and 2 fox in front of us at the same time-in daylight!! truly fantastic and i think most of my time with him i had my mouth open in amazement, I only have my uncalibrated laptop with me but it will give you some idea, The Nikon D3s really shone as the light dropped and the badgers were shot with a mix of ISO 3200 and 6400 and then some with a multi flash set up, Phil runs workshops for the badgers and foxes along with various species of bird that i will come to in my next blog, Check out his website and if you want images like his then drop him a line and enjoy a great day out

ISO 3200-No Noise Reduction

The images above were taken with a Nikon D3s and 200-400+1.4x
