'Wildlands’ - an exhibition by Cumbrian wildlife photographer David Philips, will be on show at the RSPB Geltsdale Gallery from Friday 26 July - Friday 27 September. The public are invited to head to the site at Hallbankgate near Brampton, to see the exciting array of photographs of birdlife from across Northern England and Southern Scotland.
David’s interest in wildlife was cultivated by his father’s love of birds and since those early days he has perfected his craft of photography over many years. He has been a finalist for the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards and his photography has been used in a variety of books, magazines and advertising, both nationally and internationally.
David Phillips said: “When it comes to birds I have never had a great interest in pursuing the rarities but prefer to concentrate on pictures that illustrate infrequently realised aspects of what may too often be seen as the mundane - the sparrowhawk’s hunters’ eye or the striking iridescence of the lapwing’s feathers in the day’s early light.”
As David exhibits only occasionally, the ‘Wildlands’ exhibition provides an excellent opportunity to view his work. More information and the photographs of David Philips can be found at www.davidphillipsphotography.co.uk/
The RSPB Geltsdale Gallery is open daily 9am to 5pm and is free to enter, though donations are welcome.
