Getting Up Close

Something a lot of visitors to the exhibition have been asking me is how I get close enough to badgers to photograph them for my paintings. It isn't easy, as these pictures show.

Badgers out in force...

I enter stage left and... exit one badger, stage right

Snap a twig.. and ...exit badger number two....

Only one badger left now

Getting annoyed now. No badgers and the battery of my torch has run out. Little do I know, my luck is about to change.

Starting to look a lot more promising....



  1. What a wonderful series of photos. Who took the photos with you in the frame? Did you use a flash, or a spotlight?

  2. I used a remote shooting infa red set up. It was very complicated!
