Editor John Beatty - internationally renowned travel, wildlife and adventure photographer, based in Bamford in the Peak District - is also launching a search for fresh talent with an appeal to both pro and amateur photographers to submit their best wildlife images for the 2014 diary and calendar.
Beatty has been a professional outdoor photographer himself for nearly thirty years and, as an editor, says he is still inspired by other photographers work: “I have travelled around the world for three decades and still find the wild places ofBritainas my source of inspiration. And as an editor and publisher of this Diary and Calendar, reviewing the hundreds of images submitted online by some of theUK’s finest photographers for the John Muir Trust Wild Nature Diary each year, is a joy. I study each one carefully looking for attention to detail, spirit and atmosphere. In choosing the final 60 I learn so much about composition, style and commitment too, from this; the very best nature and landscape photography inBritain.”
John’s nature photography and his speaking tours are continuing to draw attention from all who have seen his work. He says, “Nature needs a helping hand these days. Working closely with the John Muir Trust helps me to 'put something back'. Making this Diary each year reminds me that the natural world is complex and beautiful, and that the skill of the photographers who capture its essence are contributing their vision too.”
Presented in a clear, week-to-view design with informative captions, the work ofBritain's top nature and landscape photographers is showcased here in a superb collection that truly represents the atmosphere and moods of wild places. Commissioned by the John Muir Trust and a Foreword by HRH Prince of Wales, this desk diary is the best of its kind and will remind and inspire all those with an interest in the natural world.
Each week offers insight and inspiration with informative captions, nature notes and a clear, easy to use design to enhance any wall or desk in the home or office.
