Review of Otter Photography Season 2011

Posted by Brydon Thomason on Sunday 20th November 2011 | News

Once again the increase in demand continues to rise for photographers seeking to capture their own images of Otters in Shetland and I was fortunate to enjoy the company of photographers from far and wide such as Texas, Switzerland, Denmark and France. It has been another year where advanced booking proved to be paramount with the bookings diary being all but full even before the end of the previous year, 2010. 2012 season’s calendar is already fast filling in with bookings all months from March onwards and June and July already almost being fully booked.

Here is a selection of images from some of my clients images from this season:

You can also read recommendations from these photographers.

Here is a selection of some of my own images from this season:

Many images taken on the Otter Photography workshops have appeared in (and no doubt will be appearing) numerous photographic competitions at various levels. Most notably was one of Mark Hamblin’s images taken while out with me which was awarded as ‘highly commended’ in the British Wildlife Photography Awards animal behaviour category. You can read here Mark’s recommendation from his time out with me in 2010.

Many other images taken on these workshops have appeared in various publications such as the reprint of the RSPB’s guide to digital Wildlife Photography by David Tipling and even on the front cover of the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s 2012 Calendar.

I’d like to take the opportunity in this review to thank all the photographers from 2011 for their custom and company and also for the use of the selection of images above and their very kind words about our time together in the field.
