The Scottish Gamekeepers Association is delighted to announce its support, as an endorsing partner, for 2020VISION, the most ambitious nature photography-based conservation initiative ever undertaken in the UK.
20 of the country’s top wildlife and nature photographers have been traveling the length and breadth of the British Isles documenting the value of restoring the UK’s fragmented ecosystems and the life-support services they provide.
Since autumn 2010, the Phototeam has been carrying out 20 flagship assignments which clearly demonstrate the link between a healthy, robust natural landscape and the well being of local people and communities. One of the areas covered has been deer management in Assynt.
The Phototeam, which includes top shooters like Chris Packham, Joe Cornish, Charlie Hamilton-James and Andy Rouse, have been joined by videographers, sound recordists, writers and designers to visit key locations throughout Britain where large habitats are being restored or re-connected, not only for the benefit of the wildlife species that live there, but for people and communities too.
The thousands of images and hours of footage generated from these assignments will then be woven into compelling narratives and presented in innovative ways up and down the country – working with local partners.
We will keep members up to date on times and venues for the forthcoming shows/exhibitions and also give everyone the opportunity to buy the official book around launch time. You can learn more about 2020Vision by visiting www.2020V.org
