American photographer Michael ‘Nick’ Nichols has been named Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 by a panel of international judges for his black-and-white image of lions resting with their cubs in Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park. Eight-year-old Carlos Perez Naval was awarded Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 for his image of a scorpion soaking up the Sun near his hometown in Spain. 

Nichols followed the pride for nearly six months so they were used to his presence and photographed them in infra-red, which as he explains: ‘transforms the light and turns the moment into something primal, biblical almost.'

Photographer Jim Brandenburg, chair of the judging panel, said: ‘Nick’s image encapsulated so many elements that demonstrated artistic and technical skill, the sort that takes many years of professional work to hone and craft as he has done’.

Eight-year-old Carlos Perez Naval’s image, Sunbathing At dusk, shows the scorpion flourishing its sting as a warning to the young photographer.
