Andy Rouse, Nature photographer, UK
Andy Rouse is a 50 year “young” wildlife- and aviation photographer from Cardiff, UK, and is well known for his superb images of UK wildlife like hare, roe deer and owls. But he also likes gorillas, elephants and polar bears. Tigers and cheetahs are also favourite species for him.
Andy started pretty late with professional wildlife photography after he was 32 years old. He was and is very successful and Canon mentioned this and Andy became a Canon Explorer. Ambassadors and Explorers are high end professionals and so he feels always the “pressure” to stay at a high level with his photography.
His photos are published in many magazines and newspapers worldwide and he had dozens of radio and tv appearances. He won more over then 20 major international awards and he’s very proud on them but nowadays they mean a little bit less because of his changed point of view.
To keep his income with photography he changed the way of taking pictures. His style is to shoot highly commercial photos to make a good living and have time for the things he love the most, like spending time together with wildlife and taking pictures.
Andy is a passionated wildlife photographer, was very successful in contests and loves it to be a jury member of the 2018 Nature Photographer of the Year Contest to have a look at the beautiful entries.
