The Bird Photographer of the Year competition celebrates the artistry of bird photography, and this large-format book is lavishly illustrated to reflect this. A celebration of avian beauty and diversity, it is a tribute to both the dedication and passion of the photographers as well as a reflection of the quality of today’s modern digital imaging systems.
The book includes the winning and short-listed images from the competition, now in its fourth year, showcasing some of the finest bird photography, with a foreword by Chris Packham, one of the judges.
The advent of digital technology has revolutionised photography in recent years, and the book brings to life some of the most stunning bird photography currently on offer. It features a vast variety of photographs by hardened pros, keen amateurs and hobbyists alike, reflecting the huge diversity of bird enthusiasts and nature lovers which is so important in ensuring their conservation and survival.
"[...] The short blurb accompanying each photo helps to convey something of the photographer’s perspective, and the technical details will be helpful to those blessed with the skills and equipment to try and emulate similar feats. For the rest of us, the photos in this book are simply to be marvelled at and revelled in for the works of art that they are."
