An award-winning wildlife photographer will be giving an illustrated talk on his craft to a group of like-minded enthusiasts.

Ipswich and District Photographic Society will be welcoming Kevin Sawford to its meeting next week, when he will be offering an insight into his career and experiences.

Mr Sawford, who is based on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk, says his main passion is to photograph the natural world and he enjoys capturing a wide variety of wildlife, both at home and abroad.

He has run photography workshops for the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, which he said “proved very popular” and has grown to offer more events across the county’s nature reserves.

His works have sold around the world including one, of an elephant hawk moth, that featured on an Irish stamp.

And several have earned him awards in competitions, including a highly commended at the 2014 British Wildlife Photography Awards and a silver award in the 2013 International Loupe awards.

“Recently I have found myself working closer to home and find that by doing so I’m able to learn the lives of the local wildlife better and so giving myself more opportunities to get images of my three favourite local UK species, these being the roe deer, barn owl and brown hare,” he said.
