:star:First of all, thank you so much for the DD and all the congrats!:star:

I was amazed to take a look at my page and see that I've been awarded my third DD. Thank you so much JenFruzz for chosing my picture of two king vultures at Berlin zoo, I'm glad everyone has been enjoying the shot of these beautiful birds! I've been asked a few times how I achieved the 'pure black backround' in camera and I will write a little guide to how to do it on my website (www.kjrwildlifephotography) soon, its not hard and is very fun to play with. Can get some great results too, from dramatic portraits to just getting rid of ugly zoo backrounds full of fences or concrete.

:star:Birthday Features!:star:

Thanks so much to everyone who kindly posted birthday messages to me! You all are amazing, have a feature!

(by the way, I loved visiting Montserrat, wish I could get back to visit one day! Hope all is well over there and the volcanoe is behaving itself!)

On That Day... by comixqueen Chibi Maple by comixqueenAlpha by comixqueen

:star:What else is going on...?:star:

Well I survived living in Belgium and speakign french for a month XD then I took off on a much needed holiday to Ibiza for a couple of weeks with all my family (LOVE this island, so much to explore and do and so beautiful, plus yes the clubs are legendary and incredible!)

Right now I'm getting ready for the annual research trip to a seal breeding colony, will probably be away for two months again like last year. I'm also getting to grips with a new camera body, I was very lucky to be able to upgrade my beloved D200 to a D810 last month and I'm trying to learn how to get the best from it. I've been down to london last weekend for a training day on the camera and feel a lot more capable of using it, hopefully I will be able to translate that into some fantastic pictures!

I'm also trying to really get my website off the ground. It's been around for 3 years now but I've not done much with it, now I want to start writing regular blogs, reviews of zoos or wildlife tours I've been on and articles with tips and tricks I've learnt over the 9 years I've been shooting. I'll post a journal here on DA to keep you all in the loop with what's going on over there, right now I've just uploaded my first review, of Ecoventures, the dolphin tour operator I use to visit the Moray Firth bottlenose dolphins! Check it out and let me know if there is anything wrong, or anything that you'd like to know that isn't in the review, getting the format right is still a work in progress!

Ecoventures review:…

OK that's all for now, take care and look out for some new shots from my recent trip to Cotswold Wildlife Park (in the pouring rain!) like this one of their clouded leopard

Hello everyone :aww:

I'm a zoologist who works on marine mammals, I've just got my PhD in seal behaviour, endocrinology and neurobiology and now I work with dolphins as well as seals. I love wildlife and I hope to spend the rest of my life in the field studying animals just like I am now.

I learnt photography out of nessecity for my job and have taken it up as a hobby because its fun.
