COLD PLACES - From the North Pole, to the Antarctic and in between. Adventures of a wildlife photographer
Sue is a professional and award-winning wildlife photographer, filmaker and author, who spent 11 years with the world-renowned BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol. She fulfilled a lifelong ambition to work with her childhood (and adulthood!) hero, Sir David Attenborough on a number of series. She was an assistant producer on the award-winning BBC series The Blue Planet and also worked on Planet Earth and the Disneynature movie Earth. Sue also produced a number of wildlife documentaries for the BBC including Polar Bears on Thin Ice, A Boy Among Polar Bears, and Killer Whale. She left the BBC in 2005 to concentrate on her photography full time. She is represented by Getty Images. Sue's adventures have taken her from camping at -40C with Inuit hunters in the Arctic, working on Russian icebreakers on trips to the North Pole, and swimming with leopard seals in the ANtarctic, over the last 20 years working in the polar regions. However, she also gets chance to thaw out in places like Papua New Guinea and the South Pacific too! Discover if wildlife filmaking is as glamorous a job as it sounds!

A day of historic railways and canals.
Start the Phototrip at Crewe Heritage Centre (entry fee) where old locomotives, signal boxes and viewing gallery towards Crewe main-line railway station provide opportunities to photograph trains and railway nostalgia in varying characterful conditions. Also, polish up those close-up skills on lots of small details. (Tripods allowed). Meet in the small cafe for a 10.30am start. In the meantime, find more about the Centre here: https://crewehc.org Then about 6 miles to Nantwich Marina for a stroll beside a busy stretch of the Shropshire Union Canal. Hot food (including fine bacon sandwiches!) available in the co-located Waterside Cafe. Click the link below for more details. If time permits, take a short walk to Nantwich Aqueduct or drive a couple of miles to Hurleston Locks at the Llangollen Canal junction.
