Wildlife Photography, Kittiwake Chicks at Dunbar Harbour, East Lothian
Now for something a bit different. As a corporate and event photographer, operating in Edinburgh, East Lothian and throughout Scotland, freelance photography work is starting to come back again and I just finished a commercial corporate job recently photographing a classy Range Rover car for a Luxury Car Chauffeur business, which was great fun. However, I have had a bit more time on my hands and have managed a few projects that I would have found difficult otherwise due to lack of time. Many years ago, I photographed the kittiwake chicks in Dunbar Harbour and it has been a few years since I have returned. This year, however, I have manged a few days photographing the chicks just after hatching and the related activity that you get during this time. It is interesting watching the parents fetch the fish for the little ones and seeing how they rapidly grow - some of them are a bit like teenagers by now. It is a challenging subject to photograph as you have to be quick. You need a long lens but there is no space for a tripod, so you have to hand hold, which can be very tiring on your arms and your neck hurts from looking up alll the time. However, as lomg as you keep alert and shoot at a fast speed to combat camera shake, it is well worth it in the end. If you are patient enough and stay for at least an hour, the birds get used to you and trust you more, which means they are more likely to behave naturally. Anyway there are lots of pictures on my website in the Miscellaneous section, in addition to the one with this blog. Hopefully some of the corporate event photography commissions and weddings in East Lothian, Edinburgh and around Scotland, will start to commence soon.
Anyway, until next time.
