In February I will be speaking at the Nature & Wildlife Photography Conference at Wat Tyler Country Park. I am excited to share with you some of my latest work and stories about nature conservation. It would be great to see some of you there!
I am excited to share with you a recent interview about my work over on the Under the Skin of Endangered Animals website. I encourage you to also take a look at their fantastic selection of fine art prints which help to support the conservation of endangered animals!
‘We love nothing more than coming across the work of talented photographers who have dedicated their time and craft to celebrating the natural world. And Stephanie Foote is no exception.’
This summer I was invited to feature on Matthew Maran’s Podcast.
‘In this episode we talk about her early years and inspiration to want to become a wildlife photographer, how she plans on making a living and her experiences of being a young woman in what remains a largely male dominated field.’
I was delighted to be selected as Female Nature Photographer of the Month again. You can see my photograph of a European Hamster from a month long project in Austria, featured by Wild Planet Photo Magazine on a double page spread in the June issue.
This month I featured in a small publication close to home, The Stapleford Messenger.
Want to work in to the nature photography industry? Don’t miss my blog over on NatureTTL, which provides a break down on some of the best nature photography events in the UK.
I had a great day out visiting the International Garden Photographer of the Year private view exhibition at Kew Gardens in London. The awarded images on display were stunning and I encourage you to visit their website to see some examples of beautiful gardens around the world. I was delighted to see my commended image of a sunset over Skomer Island featured in the awards book.
It was a wonderful surprise to find my own website featured in this blog article by Sebastien Kennerknecht. It is a brilliant resource to view the work of some inspiring female role models in the industry so please do take a look!
For three months you will be able to view my photographs from my final year project at university on display in Tête à Thé in Argentière in the French Alps, (my favourite tea shop in France)! I also produced a children’s book to educate young visitors to the region about conservation and wildlife in the Aiguilles Rouges Mountain Range, a copy of which will be on display for guests to read.
I was delighted to be selected as Female Nature Photographer of the Month for April. You can see my photograph of a common frog in Autumn featured by Wild Planet Photo Magazine on a double page spread in the April issue.
I am delighted to announce my photograph of an Atlantic puffin was awarded highly commended in the black and white category of the British Wildlife Photography Awards 2016. This is an image I took on Skomer Island. Puffins are well known for their vibrant beaks and comical appearance, so I decided to show a more elegant side - converting the image to black and white and using a close crop to illustrate the bird cleaning itself. I was so happy to see my image alongside those of other talented photographers in London. It was great to meet likeminded people at the awards ceremony last night, and congratulations to all the other successful entrants.
