ACKNOWLEDGED AS A NUMBER ONE CHOICE
FOR WILDLIFE WORKSHOPS IN THE UK
The Japanese actually loved the image and said so but decided that the average person would not be able to take an image to match it because it was technically too clever. You have to remember that this was taken on transparency film and long before the introduction of digital cameras and the use of computer software to manipulate images. Today it is a piece of cake to add a moon to an image or anything else for that matter! How was it done? Well you will have to join George on one of his workshops and ask him yourself.
Tawny Owl & the Moon
George McCarthy has been taking wildlife images as a professional UK photographer for over twenty-five years. Not surprisingly his work has taken him far and wide in the quest for new and exciting pictures. He is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and, as testament to the quality of his work and his experience, currently sits on the nature judging panel for Associateship and Fellowship applications from around the world.

He is also an experienced tour and workshop leader and under the banner of his own company, Nature Photography Pro Tours, he has run many photography tours both in this country and abroad including over twenty to the USA State of Florida alone! In 2005 he and his wife Angie spent an amazing year travelling over 30,000 miles around North America in a Winnebago just taking pictures of the wildlife and the fabulous scenery they encountered.

Not surprisingly, his photographs are sold around the world. Corbis, his main international picture agency, once sold two of his images to the same client for a staggering twenty thousand US dollars! There are not many pro photographers in the UK shooting solely wildlife who can match that.
Despite all the exotic locations (and some not quite so exotic) George’s real passion is for photographing British wildlife and the countryside. That’s his speciality and over the years he has accumulated an intimate understanding of his subjects and couples that with superb field craft to come up with his pictures.

Today he spends much of his time passing on his knowledge and skills in a diverse and unique series of workshops that are quickly becoming the number 1 choice for fast track wildlife workshops in the UK. Why not join him to improve your techniques or perhaps to add some of the rarer more difficult subjects to your portfolio.
One of Britains rarest fungi
If you are into fungi photography you could have no better leader than George who has published two books on this subject. First editions of his original book entitled "The Wild Mushroom" now fetch 4-5 times the cover price in the USA! A copy was sold last year on EBay for £80 - see what you can buy one for by clicking on the books tab.
You can join one of the group workshops that are held in a friendly relaxed atmosphere or why not have your own personal one-to-one course that will be professionally designed to fast track your specific needs? One to one prices start as little as £150 so why not treat some one special even if the special person is you?
