Portrait Fun.jpg


My name is Simon Wantling and I am an award winning freelance nature and wildlife photographer based in the UK. The natural world has always been a passion for me and it has always been my ambition from a young age to spend as much time in the outdoors amongst the wildlife I so love to be around. 

When I'm not with my family, I spend all my spare time out in the field photographing the local wildlife. It isn't until you 'get out there' that you discover what wonderful wildlife there is around you.

Some of my images have taken months of work and tireless dedication to capture, but when that moment comes, all the effort is worth it.

My main focus is UK wildlife and in particular I tend to concentrate most my effort on photographing birds. I have a real passion for Owls which always prove a challenge. The Barn Owl has to be my favourite and spending time with these most spectacular birds is something really quite special.

I hope to bring a sense of these wildlife experiences to the followers of my work and immerse them in that special moment.

Feel free to contact me if you would like to talk about my wildlife photography, have any questions about improving your photography techniques OR would like join me for a spot of 1:1 photography tuition out in the field.
