A Seabird Selection

When good friend and fellow wildlife photographer, Brett Lewis, offered me the opportunity to accompany him whilst he conducted Crested Newt surveys across the UK, I jumped at the chance.  The surveys would take place in the Peak district, Yorkshire and a site close to Newcastle.  All of these sites would be within a short distance from very good locations for wildlife photography and we made sure that we made good use of the weather (which at time was too bright!)  Here is a small selection of the shots I took, more will follow when time allows.


  1. Hi Tony, We saw your great escape image and were blown away. We would love to host you as a guest photographer for the day on our website . The website is built to showcase one amazing photograph per day from around the world and we would love for you to be a part of it. We receive about 4,000 – 8,000 views per day and your image will be on our home page for at least a week (30,000 views). We will promote your website, blog, or anything else you would like us to mention and provide links to all. Here is an example .
    All we would need from you is a quick blurb about the back story of the photograph. (Where it was taken, any interesting stories, camera settings, etc.) If you are interested please send your questions short write up and photo ( about 300-400K) to Thanks again and congratulations on such an amazing photograph.

  2. Hi Tony,

    I'm writing for Nikon Germany's Facebook page ( and I'm a big fan of your photo "Watch the Birdie", which I found in your 500px stream. Is the bird sitting on a Nikon camera?

    And if yes: Would you allow us to publish your photo on our page? And could you write me an email to this address: ninasahm(at) That would be great.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
    Nina Sahm
