Capturing Ecology: Behind the Lens

Tune in every Wednesday on our Instagram account as we interview the photographers and judges behind our annual photography competition

We are excited to announce the launch of Capturing Ecology: Behind the Lens!

This new series of short, weekly interviews will tell the stories of the photographers and judges involved in our annual photography competition. From their top tips, to their favourite species, we’ll be bringing you insights into the lives and work of our Capturing Ecology photographers every Wednesday at 16:30 (BST) on Instagram Live.

Our next interview is on 15 July with Sanne Govaert, a PhD student at the University of Ghent and student winner of the Art of Ecology category in Capturing Ecology 2019.

If you’re interested in photography, ecology, or just love wildlife, make sure you tune in to our interviews on Instagram Live. There’s no need to register, but you can follow our account to make sure you don’t miss it.
