Tom Stables

Wildlife and Conservation Photographer 

Fuelling my passion for photography is an interest in conservation; recognising the importance of highlighting the value of the few pockets of wilderness left in our world today.  I hope that my photos connect people to the individual animals – whether it is admiring their beauty or wondering about their behaviour.  My aim is to instill in the viewer a sense of appreciation towards nature and the need to protect and conserve it.  Whatever interest my photos spark in you, I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

 

 

One particular highlight was in 2016 photographing for the Born Free Foundation in Meru National Park, Kenya.  Working with the lion monitoring team, I spent four weeks tracking down and photographing each individual pride member. Alongside this, I also produced a general portfolio of the park highlighting the valuable work Born Free have been doing alongside the KWS (Kenyan Wildlife Service) to combat the effects of  the intensive poaching experienced in the park during the 1990’s.

 I have also been fortunate enough to have been awarded Highly Commended in the 2016 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, and to have won the August Shoot The Frame International Landscape award,

 

 I  have always remained loyal to the Nikon brand - currently owning a D850 and D7100 alongside a selection of Nikon lens.

 

The following portfolio showcases some of my favourite shots I've taken during these memorable trips.
