Young Mammal Photographer of the Year

Really pleased to be announced as the winner of

Young Mammal Photographer of the Year 2020 – In the 15 to 18 years category.

Head judge, Brett Lewis, said “The buck is aware and its focus of attention is diverted towards the presence of the photographer. Alex took that moment to capture an engaging shot and one that pulls the viewers focus straight back to the deer, whilst appreciating the plethora of flowers that adorn the meadow. Often scenes like these are fleeting and it takes a certain amount of professionalism to capture the image so well.”

I’m especially excited to have won a day of wildlife photography at West Country Wildlife Photography Centre, Devon
