The stories behind the images

Behind every photograph there is a story.  This is very true when you are wildlife photographer spending long periods chasing the perfect wildlife image in the Cairngorms.  In this illustrated talk, Andy Howard will relate his experiences of photographing mountain birds and animals and tell the stories behind the photographs in his current exhibition at Gairloch Heritage Museum.  He will touch on the strategies, techniques, and equipment required to capture professional wildlife images and discuss his methods of locating, attracting, and approaching the animals he photographs.
