Calke Abbey Video

I recently compiled a short video set at Calke Abbey.  It contains shots I took last year when I assisted/volunteered with the BWPA exhibition set up, as well as more recent footage.

The video can be found here or by clicking the link above.  Calke Abbey is such a lovely place; on both visits I was lucky enough to see a little owl (or two!) and there’s so much other wildlife too.

Tranquility Reptiles

Last year I did a shoot photographing a friend’s reptiles for his website. He maintains a site that is a knowledge base for those wanting to keep reptiles whilst giving a more personal approach. Follow Ryan’s own experiences with his ever-expanding collection of reptiles – tranquilityreptiles.wordpress.com !

Just a few of the photos from the shoot:

We took a trip ... to the other end of the reptile room!

 

Lord Spikey McEcho the Gecko – The New Caledonian Crested Gecko
This guy was an absolute nightmare to photograph – he wasn’t a big fan of the camera, and much preferred to hide in his leafy vivarium.  Can’t blame him really!  And he looks awesome, so all is forgiven.

Duke of Kellog’s – The Corn Snake
Utterly beautiful snake!  Was just such a lovely colour.

William Snakespeare  – The Western Hognose
He loved the camera; Ryan was lucky Will Snakespeare didn’t end up leaving with me in my camera bag!
