Thank you all so much for giving your time to look at my work. I really appreciate it and will endevour to look at your images in return. I do not click for click. Living in Hampshire, England. Richard Bond has always had a great interest in conservation and wildlife, being taught the fundamentals by his Father. His main rule in photography is that the welfare of the animal comes before the photograph. Frequently he lives in total camouflage and applies the skills of fieldcraft required to get the shot with the camera, taking into account the subject unpredictability and many times you have to approach the subject rather than the subject coming to you. Preperation is 95% of the battle and so rewarding when it comes off. He was asked a question 'What is your best photograph?' The answer was, ' No idea, I haven't taken it yet' and I feel this is a great ethos to keep trying and trying. In the last 18 months I have gained diplomas in Studio and Wedding Photography and now have my own studio. Business is very good and improving all the time.
