Years hunting: 30
Nick Ridley is the UK's leading dog photo
grapher and has a passion for shooting
gundogs. In 1998 he started what has
become one of the highest profile and well
respected dog event photography businesses in the country. Nick
is also gundog editor for a well known field sports magazine and
has written five internationally sold books. The latest "Labradors...
at work, rest, and play" and "Spaniels" clearly display his
enthusiasm for photographing dogs working in the shooting field.
Nick lives in rural Buckinghamshire and during his "off-time" he trains and works with two Cocker Spaniels. Nick often says that to watch a well trained gundog do what it has been bred to do for generations is one of the greatest pleasures of his life. "There can be nothing better than walking behind a hard hunting spaniel with a gun in your hand being surrounded by beautiful English countryside."
Jarrett hunts a wide range of his days and nights on the coast; where he reflects the diversity and variety of the sport of wildfowling. Through his writing he captures the many natural moods that make the coast and its birds so special.
