Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 70-200mm, 1/2000sec at f/5.6, ISO 640 Dur­ing the past 18 months I’ve been in­volved in far more lo­ca­tion pho­tog­ra­phy than I’ve been ac­cus­tomed to and not only had to adapt the type of kit I carry around but also my ap­proach to im­age mak­ing with con­stantly mov­ing sub­jects out in the field.

I was cov­er­ing a fal­conry day, walk­ing up hedges and wood­land near Ban­bury, Ox­ford­shire, and I’m still in the early stages of edit­ing the 1,000 or so pic­tures from the set, but this im­age of Dan with his goshawk walk­ing the stub­ble cap­tures the at­mos­phere of the day. I was in a con­stant state of an­tic­i­pa­tion be­cause the han­dler can ‘slip’ or re­lease the bird at any time, with­out any warn­ing.
