Marwell Wildlife declares Photographer of the Year contest winners

Marwell Wildlife has declared the winners of their 5th Photographer of the Year contest that saw hundreds of amateur, pro as well as young snappers hunt the best that the Mother Nature has to offer. The zoo’s Amur leopard cub Kanika snatched the top prize as she explored her fence. The snap was clicked by George Wheelhouse.
Stealing the limelight in the funny and cute category was a Japanese macaque. It was captured on camera playing with a phone as it bathed in the Jigokudari pool in Japan. Winchester’s Suzie Tanser was behind the camera for this strange shot that ensured that she was laurelled winner of the category.
According to reports, she stated that she is not very sure how he got hold of it, but one of the macaques was brandishing an iPhone. Initially, it played with it but then appeared to take a closer look – not sure if he was checking his Facebook, looking for a selfie or just admiring its own reflection.
In the meantime, fourteen year old Eloise Mott, from Southampton, won junior Cute as well as Funny category for her snap of a zebra lying its head on another one’s back. The young person, who has just taken up photography last year, stated that they were on holiday in South Africa. When they were on a safari, it was just resting its chin and she thought that is cute. It popped up outside the car and rested its head for a couple of minutes and then went back to eating.

When photography becomes a thrill

It sounds like a film. Previous May, Greg Johnson was in El Reno, Oklahoma, and he saw himself inside a 4.2 kilometer long tornado. A truck flew by. A barn exploded. Three people he knew were killed in the storm. Johnson told that the fact that they survived, yeah it is exhilarating, but at the moment it was totally terrifying. It surely defeats wedding photography. Johnson describes his introduction to professional picture taking as horrible.
For several years, he was a hobby shooter, working on yearbook in high school in Ottawa as well as for school newspaper when going to the Acadia University, Nova Scotia. But Greg went professional in the year 2000 when the whole digital technology made his trade much more accessible.
He started the Greg Johnson Photography that in the year 2005 morphed into Regina advertisement agency called Look Matters. But after shooting around two hundred weddings, among other things, he opted for more exciting subject matter. He has been becharmed by extreme weather since a lightning heavy storm between Carlyle and Regina had left him in a ditch. Later, he learned that a tornado had passed through.
This is when he became very interested in taking pictures of storms. He stated that it has to do with the camera and the thrill of getting that snap, that never gets old. They have got few shots frankly that he would put up with the best weather shots in the world. To capture that, there is nothing like it.

Patrick Brown, a well known photographer, has spent almost ten years traveling the world as well as documenting the consequences of the steady demand for animal products for his project named Trading to Extinction. Read the rest of this entry »
