Les Golding is an artist working within the medium of photography with a specialist interest in wildlife and nature where his particular interest lies in ornithology.
Les retired from commercial photography after over 40 years in the business in 2015, where he worked within the Museums and Art Gallery sector with Tyne and Wear Museums and Art Galleries.
I prefer to position my subject, wether bird or animal, within the context of its habitat. I am not overly keen on the "portrait" type of image as the viewer is unlikely to learn anything from the viewing experience. The "portrait" type image is a necessary form when utilised within a reference book.
