‘Everyone is tempted by glamour, the big, the brash and the beautiful. But Chris likes to champion the underdog and push back at familiarity breeding contempt so for him humble everyday creatures are just as alluring. He likes to ‘make something out of other people’s nothing’ when it comes to photography and loves the challenge of finding beauty in ugly places. And when he does travel to some of the worlds wildlife hotspots he wants to see them in a new way, to put some art into his photos. But at the core of all his work is conservation so expect tales from the frontline and the full-frontal truth about how we get it wrong and get it right. Funny, inspiring, irreverent and packed with information it’s not a lecture, it’s a romp through the wild mind of Chris Packham’.
