On the hunt for wildlife

The semi-rural surroundings of Barnt Green have provided some rich pickings for local wildlife photographer Tim Hunt.

Tim grew up in the village, where he attended St Andrew’s First School, and says he always took a keen interest in the natural world.

“I did have a disposable camera as a kid, but we never got the pictures printed as they probably weren’t that good! But about six years ago I did a National Diploma in Photography at Stratford College – and got hooked. “

He went on to do a BA in Marine & Natural History Photography at University College Falmouth, then an MA in TV Production with a particular interest in natural history.

As well as photographing the native wildlife in Falmouth and on his travels elsewhere, Tim went out with his camera every time he returned to Barnt Green, and has now moved back to the village where his family still live.

His work has been recognised in high places: last year he came third in the Wildlife in the Garden category in the Royal Horticultural Society’s competition, and was featured on The Alan Titchmarsh Show.

Tim was also a semi-finalist in Wildlife Photographer Of the Year 2011, and recently received the European Student Award/ Scholarship from the International Photographic Council at the Photokina trade fair in Cologne.
