About this book

Andy Rouse has gained a reputation for getting in close, really close, to his subjects which range from lions and elephants in Africa to penguins in Antarctica, taking in a whole host of African, European and North American wildlife on the way. In the first part of this book, 'Vision's' he presents the photographs, many never before published, which he feels were the landmarks in his career and in his development from a one 'big shot' specialist to an artist who can capture the whole story of a species and its environment.

Under the heading of 'Expression' he then discusses and illustrates the ideas and techniques which have enabled him to create a series of themed portfolios devoted to a single species or ecosystem, such as those he made in South Georgia and Antarctica. Finally, in 'Inspiration' he turns to the work of other wildlife photographers who have inspired and influenced him.

There is also an appendix giving technical details of the individual photographs. For aspiring wildlife photographers, this book will itself be an inspiration, showing just what can be achieved with skill, patience and an extraordinary eye for the telling and dramatic shot. But it will also be treasured by the host of wildlife enthusiasts who admire Andy's pictures, attend his lectures or watch his television programmes.
