Tuning into Nature is the story of a very personal experience undertaken by professional wildlife photographer Andy Rouse. Like many, when the world changed in March 2020 Andy found himself struggling, not only with the huge changes affecting the global travel industry, but also with some personal issues closer to home – literally! Via the healing power of local nature, Andy rediscovered during lockdown the most precious commodity he had lost in his busy life… time. During the darkest months of 2020 he learnt to conquer his inner saboteur by taking world class images of local wildlife that he used to inspire and guide others to embrace the healing power of nature.
Tuning into Nature is packed with 221 astounding wildlife images but it's so much more than just another photography book. This is the intimate story from behind the lens, not only of the fieldcraft and photographic process, but also the inner thoughts and struggles which can affect us all. This is the perfect book for anyone who loves wildlife and wants to understand how tuning into nature can help them live a more balanced life.
"Andy is a great teacher, but for me the joy is to read the text and see the story in those pictures. That says more to me about the man who made them and how they helped re-make the man."
