Norfolk is an exceptionally popular part of the UK, and not just for those looking for a holiday park in North Norfolk. The wildlife and nature is a renowned love interest for people far and wide. Josh Jaggard, whose work was recently on show at the National Wildlife Trust’s Cley Marshes Visitor Centre, is no different.
Mr Jaggard has been a keen photographer of insects and birds in the garden of his childhood home at Wymondham since being a teen, but as he has grown up, so did his photographic efforts.
Following the completion of his marine and natural history photography course at University College Falmouth, Josh developed his passion for wildlife photography that one step further, which involved him getting a job leading nature tours for amateur and professional photographers on the remote Scottish island of Shetland.
Fast forward to now and Josh can be found spending the autumn and winter months hard at work in Norfolk. He still spends spring and summer in Shetland, whereby he tracks a whole host of majestic wildlife, from gannets, to puffins and razor bills, otters and even killer whales!
Mr Jaggard has been involved in producing films for Springwatch, the BBC wildlife series.
Josh has achieved what many in his field can only dream of happening to them in their lifetime, but at 26, Sir David Attenborough has already watched his film Saving Species, made for Norfolk Wildlife Trust when he was visiting North Norfolk to open the Simon Aspinall Education Centre at Cley in 2015.
Josh’s talents are well recognised, and he was successful in winning the accolade of Bird Photographer of the Year and the British Wildlife Photography Awards, as well as having his work published in regional and national newspapers, not to mention having his work included in issues of BBC Wildlife magazine and Amateur Photographer.
