WEX Offer: Save 50 On The Olympus OM-D E-M1X



Welcome to my portfolio.
Come in and take a look at my local area - the beautiful North Pennines and Hadrian's Wall Country

All my animal and bird images are of truly wild creatures in the local countryside. I never shoot captive animals or the semi- tame birds in public parks. I enjoy the challenge of getting close enough to shoot real wildlife with my longest lens which is only 300mm.

A quick view of Blenkinsopp's recent activity.

  • red grouse

    well caught - they are understandably jumpy when you point things at them!

    (I've still only managed one shot of a black grouse after years of trying)

    love the composition and pose

  • 'Bring it on'

    lovely detailed shots
    - I've never managed to get a shot of one - out in the countryside here they are understandably nervous if you point anything towards them

  • Ducks And Buckets

    would make a nice image for a child's storybook - lots of detail to discuss with them
    • 7 Jul 2010 9:04AM
  • Green tree frog

    beautifully caught with excellent pose and detail.
    Think it would be even more striking with a plain neutral background

  • Just to say I will just click and only comment if I have something different to say about your images. At the moment "excellent detail, composition, colour, clarity and light" seems to fit all of them Smile
    (saves my typing finger)

  • your portfolio contains such a variety of subjects and every image is stunning. Such flexibility in a photographer is rare. You have great talent

  • Really enjoyed looking at your portfolio. Keep up the good work and ignore the minority who dislike the "cute and cuddly" animal shots as most people love them.
  • Have just had a quick look through your amazing portfolio full of well composed images taken in awesome light
    - Keep up the good work - I'll be back
  • Just had time to look through your brilliant portfolio.
    I'm new to flower photography and have only tried black velvet backgrounds. I haven't a lightbox and wondered if you could tell what you use for your wonderful coloured backgrounds which tone with the flowers.
