I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up later as a hobby – so that was that for 30 years!

I have a passion for wildlife, and I want to celebrate all its facets in my photography, including power, beauty, cuteness and humour. These are the qualities I want to share with people. I’m not a conservationist, so I don’t take pictures of endangered animals to put on a poster for Greenpeace or Friends of the Earth - I take them because I love my close encounters with the natural world, and I want to share the excitement and joy of being there. I obviously recognise the threat to certain species posed by poachers and diminishing habitats, and I hope that my images will give people more of an appreciation for wildlife, but what they choose to do with that is up to them.

  • Pulling Power by NickDale

    This is my last posting for a while, I'm afraid - I've run out of decent pictures!

    I'm planning on going to Alaska in September and Antarctica in December, though, so I should have some more for you then...

    Yes, I saw far more in Botswana in 2016 than I did in Namibia last year or Kenya in the last few years...

  • The Yawning by NickDale

    Well, I was lucky in that I'm a professional photographer, so I wasn't just on holiday. In the end, nobody at the airport even bothered to ask me if it was a work trip, but I hear they're a lot stricter these days, and you have to have 'proof' such as a letter from your employer.
