Shooting Photography is becoming a huge part of Jonathan’s work and as such he sees a huge about and variety of game being shot. It’s becoming more and more important to make sure that those not involved in Shooting and Fieldsports see what we do in the correct and ethically appropriate way. All game shot, in Jonathan’s opinion should be eaten and it more often than not is.
I am very lucky as due to the nature of my work with magazines and clients I am able to visit larger shoots and as such often see bigger volume bags. I truly appreciate the effort that these estates go to to showcase and display the days shoot birds correctly, some spending hours lying and pairing every bird with a partner and arranging all as if in a display. This is incredible to see and I feel photography of the birds should mimic this respect, if not always showing birds arranged but capturing their beauty in other ways, like my attached image.
Its very important to Jonathan that the game is photographed and filmed in the correct way and one that is artistically different on each occasion.
