While his background is in zoology, Nick realised early in his career that the academic route was too constraining and he subsequently found the avenues of photography and popular natural history writing provided the freedom he wanted to indulge in and express his interests in the natural world. Nick's travels have taken him from the Poles to the Tropics and he has photographed wildlife in many of the world's iconic as well as less glamorous and more unusual locations. His images appear in high quality publications globally, while his own books that combine his photography, writing and illustration have received wide critical acclaim. In 2000, Nick was the winner of the prestigious Gerald Durrell Award for Endangered Wildlife in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition and in 1996 won the Urban & Garden Wildlife category in the same competition. Nick regularly contributes articles and photographs to a wide range of magazines such as National Geographic, Terra Mater, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and Outdoor Photography.
Natural history was one of Robin’s earliest interests and his first attempts at photographing wildlife began with a trip to India in 1980. On subsequent trips, Robin visited Sariska, Bharatpur, the Corbett Tiger Reserve, and Ranthambore, where he experienced the thrill of tracking and sighting tigers. In ranthambore Robin had some wonderful tiger sightings, but he also became aware of how the wild tiger population can be hit so hard and so quickly by poaching, and yet, given better protection, they can also bounce back. Recently, Robin has spent most of his time in Kanha’s beautiful Sal forest but has witnessed the decline in tiger numbers. Robin believes that the local population must be taken into consideration in order to conserve wildlife; he believes the tiger can only survive if the local population also has a future and can benefit from conservation. Over the years Robin has donated his photos to the EIA who work to stop the illegal wildlife trade tiger parts and skins.
