Peter Preece of Solihull Photographic Society acknowledges his debt to the late Felix Dennis, the man behind The Heart Of England Forest Project. Peter has been actively involved in developing the forest to maximise wildlife diversity and to provide opportunities for wildlife photography. His fabulous photographs of kingfishers, red squirrels, owls and many other native birds, mammals, insects and reptiles are the result of, in his words, “90% preparation and 10% execution”. His images have brought him success in many exhibitions and competitions, including appearances in the BBC Countryfile calendar. His pictures are commercially successful, and he is much in demand as a speaker to various clubs and societies. On Friday 29th September members of the Desborough And Rothwell Photographic Society were privileged to have Peter and his wife Margaret present a selection of their work and the stories behind them. Chairman Paul Nickerson thanked them both for a wonderful evening of great natural history photography.
