Wildlife Photography on Exmoor by David Hawtin
I don’t think of myself as a wildlife photographer, but from time to time there they are, it is one of the wonderful things that brings Exmoor to life, obviously not all of the pictures are taken on Exmoor but some are and I have many to add. As with other photographs I believe composition to be important. I have a range of wildlife photography prints. Further information below the gallery.

Wildlife photography an ideal setting
Exmoor has a so much to inspire wildlife photography. Although David would not describe himself as a wildlife photographer, it is almost impossible to head out onto Exmoor without seeing a wide range of animals. Of course Exmoor has the Red Stag and large herds of 50 to 100 deer roaming freely and also has the Exmoor Pony, which can be seen in large numbers.
More recently Highland cattle have been introduced, large and intimidating and yet they seem so placid and make for an interesting addition to landscape photographs.
Exmoor Horn Sheep can also be seen roaming the moor and possibly other hardy breeds.
Although most of the photographs are of the Exmoor coastline others are from nearby South Devon and Cornwall.
Giclée prints of wildlife photographs
Wildlife photography prints, are provide on either Hahnemühle fine art paper of canvas. Printing is on a Canon IPF8300 large format printer with 12 pigment inks giving a lightfastness of over 100 years. In general terms this means that in normal room conditions a print will not fade during it’s normal life.
Wildlife photography prints on canvas are additionally protected by Hahnemühle Lacquer, this is a totally clear but protective coating that provides some UV protection for the print and some mechanical protection allowing the surface to be wiped clean.
All prints are signed by David with a title and with an edition number if appropriate to the print.

Within the UK we can also offer prints framed in a range of mouldings and are happy to advise the cost of this service, similarly we can provide canvas prints stretched on high quality stretcher bars.
