Over the last few weeks myself and two of my best friends and fellow natural history photographers, Daniel McNeil (Daniel McNeil Photography) & Miriam Brythonig have been extremely busy working with our lecturer, Tim Collier (Go check out his wildlife/landscape/ documentary photography and brilliant blog! http://www.timcollierphotography.com/) to prepare for an exhibition that Tim had very kindly secured for us in Cardiff Central Library.
We have been having great fun choosing photos, deciding just how big we could blow them up in print and cutting everything to size.
It was a real hands-on experience that has taught us all a great deal about preparing and printing for exhibitions. This week we were in Cardiff early till very late most days, painting the boards we would be exhibiting on and hanging our work up.
I am very happy and proud to be able to say that 'Golau' is now OPEN!!
The ‘Golau’ project is an exhibition of a variety of natural history photographs created by three photography undergraduates. Daniel, Tommy and Miriam met in their first year of Photography at the University of Glamorgan in Cardiff, building a friendship on a combined love of wildlife and landscape.
Now in their second year they have, through guidance from natural history photographer and lecturer, Tim Collier, compiled a broad spectrum of natural history imagery for public display.

Here is a few example images on the posters we made for the exhibition...
Thank you for all the support from everyone who has been involved; in particular Tim Collier whose guidance and expertise has given all three of us such a beneficial experience and knowledge of exhibiting work, as well as an in-depth insight into the world of natural history photography.
Please come along and have a look!!
And in the meantime I will be preparing the 2nd shoot of the Birds of Prey in the studio! I cant wait to show them!
