A team are putting together the avifauna of Sussex and want photos of every species in the county. Its for the BTO so there will be no payment but it will be a 600+ page hardbound book that will be available to buy in shops.
Sent them over 120 and we will see what happens - all well the book will be released Jan 2014
Quite nervous showing someone my stuff who will look at it with a really critical eye.
As well as the usual high res headshots /behavioural shots - they wanted the animals in context with the landscape so I'm hoping shots like this that I sent
Heron Beachy Head by Sidleydoc, on Flickr
Will get a look as well, not the best Heron shot in the world by a country mile - but with beachy head visible through the bokeh it might be worth a punt
We'll see won't we :unsure:
Good luck with it Chris! :yes:
Will they come back and tell you they're going use these particular pictures?
Or do they just go off to some deep dark hole and you've got to buy a copy of the book to see if any made it in? :unsure:
Tom (:macwave:... publish or perish!)
Not sure have spoken to the guy who is writing the book and he will give me feedback when he gets my disc.
I know it's daft to be nervous but I spent most of the morning reappraising my photos and deciding they were all useless :lol:
Have to say as a project it's going to be a huge undertaking for the guy. Although we are a tiny island we attract a huge variety of bird life.
Chris, you are such an excellent photographer. I can't imagine not having any of your photos used in the book.

:bounce: Exciting! Good luck mate.
Completely agree with everything that's been said, they'd be bonkers not to use your photos! they're truly brilliant :yes:
Really like that they're trying to get the context as well
How exciting! Will we be able to purchase the completed book?
Well we'll see. Sent me an email I error last night giving crit on what he thought was my photo set and they are being very strict, and understandably so, had to tell him he had the wrong guy.
Will let you know what he says
