James Warwick lives next to Ashdown Forest in the south of England and combines long term projects close to home on subjects such as European badgers with trips further afield in locations such as India and Africa. He has collaborated with various conservation groups over the last few years such as Nature Seychelles, Grevy's Zebra Trust, Laikipia Predator Project and Reticulated Giraffe Project to produce photo-stories for magazines. His pictures have been finalists twice in the 'Wildlife Photographer of the Year' competition and are published regularly worldwide in various forms; commercially in advertisements, corporate/travel catalogues, packaging and art products and editorially in many books, magazines and newspapers.
James tries to capture 'decisive moments' in nature and show wildlife contextually in its environment. He enjoys the process of trying to create memorable and beautiful pictures and he hopes that they will inspire people in some way to care about and conserve the natural world.
James said, "I think photography is a unique 'independent art' and like most wildlife and nature photographers, I do not digitally manipulate my pictures as I feel that it is inappropriate to my style of work which concentrates on documenting and interpreting natural history events as I see them in wild and free conditions."
