Photographs by local wildlife photographer David White to be exhibited in a London gallery

Barn owls [Photo © David White] Barn owls [Photo © David White] A fourth generation farmer, now a highly respected photographer, David White is dedicated to capturing the essence of the Marlborough Downs, the surrounding area and especially its wildlife.   Now his photographs are to be exhibited in a London gallery - the Osborne Studio Gallery - in the autumn (details below). 

 

He has been taking photographs for about ten years, farming for a lifetime. His son Edward now manages the four thousand acre farm at Berwick Bassett.   He is actively involved with the Marlborough Downs Space for Nature Project.

He does not only confine himself to his Wiltshire habitat, but travels to the ends of the earth in search of inspiration - and wildlife photographs. 

He has just returned from Nepal where he was very impressed not just by the mountains, but with the chance to photograph clear views of the stars.  He had been invited to record rare species of the native pheasant by the World Pheasant Association (WPA).  

David White on the Marlborough DownsDavid White on the Marlborough DownsHe spent most of May trekking in the Annapurna and Everest conservation areas, visiting the WPA's Pipar Project which has been working on conservation of native pheasants for forty years.  The Pipar Reserve is the only place in Nepal where five of the country's six pheasants occur.

After considerable trouble and careful stalking, David White did get shots of the very shy Himalayan Monal Pheasant and, an even greater challenge, the Blood Pheasants. 


There will be a chance to see his Nepal photographs at a WPA fund raising event in East Grafton in November - details to be announced. 

Earlier this year he travelled to Hokkaido, in the north of Japan, last year to the Arctic and Antarctic. In July he will be in South Africa - looking for his tell-tale images of wildlife and the way light changes our view of both wildlife and landscape.

How does David White achieve these stunning photos? "For the past ten years I have used Canon cameras and lens, but now trying a new Olympus camera: a Micro Four Thirds camera."  

The exhibition will be at the Osborne Studio Gallery, 2 Motcomb St, Belgravia, London, SW1X 8JU between September 18 and October 4.  Entry will be free.  There are more details on the Gallery's website.
