Joe Turner Photography | Awards & Achievements

A Focus On Nature is a network work for young conservationists in the UK. They support young Photographers interested in future careers related with wildlife based interests. I was happy to hear in early 2014 my application to join was accepted to becoming a member along side some of the best young wildlife photographers within the UK, working with Richard Shucksmith one of the UK's leading wildlife photographers which has been highly beneficial to my work.

I would like to say a big thank you to Lucy McRobert for the support within A Focus on Nature.

Worcestershire Wildlife Trust, Competition Winner 2016

This image was taken in the Wyre Forest, Worcestershire. On the day I originally planned to photograph dippers but after more than four hours I finally gave in.  As I was about to move from my hidden position on the ground on the bank of the steam, this beautiful Mandarin Duck swam down the brook only metres past me - with some stunning evening light on the subject!
