Andy Rouse Profile Information

It's well known that I love barn owls and atmospheric light, so when they come together it's wowsers all round. Yes the word "wowsers" is still valid I believe over the age of 16. Taken back in the day when I worked with Russell, few days I think will ever surpass those times and this beautiful barn owl hunting in the early morning certainly shows that.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I know it's a landscape but it's a beautiful one and I thought that you might like to continue to follow my journey of exploration. The conditions were perfect beyond belief, such a wonderful reflection of the Seven Islands, it was a natural for black and white. Evocative Svalbard at it's best.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Olive Olive and Olive!!! I loved her so much. You might think it strange but I've always been the kind of wildlife photographer that forms an empathy with their subjects and a relationship. Olive was one, I truly loved every single minute she gave me of her life. Tell me honestly is there a more beautiful cat on this planet? Well perhaps one that's equal in India ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡I had to crop this slightly for IG auto posting so excuse the format, honest it has more space. One of those times when you spend all day getting frustrated then BOOM it all happens in an instant. Taken back in the day when I was a Nikon ambassador and used a big 600mm lens.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Ok i wanted to repost this as I think that the importance of this to my photography I did not state correctly. This was a cuckoo landing on a branch, just a standard shot right? Nope it's one I have been dreaming of getting for years. The reason I nailed it was due to the Olympus E-M1X and it's Pro-Capture feature. Proof that you can teach an old dog new tricks!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡So I focussed on the branch then clicked off the focus clutch (a feature I love of Oly lenses) to manually focus a few cm's in front. I did this because I knew that at the moment of landing the head would be slightly in front. Then I kept the focus on manual, as I didn't need the AF,  set the Pro-Capture H setting to on for 60FPS of love. I know that's 60 FPS. Then I waited with the shutter button half depressed to write the images into a buffer, when the cuckoo landed I pressed the shutter down fully and the images were recorded to the card. So I captured all the images for a second before the cuckoo landed and had an amazing choice of wing positions. Since this time I haven't had much time to use this feature but now I actually understand how it works it's always there in my armoury!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

An osprey trying to get it's captured trout in the right position before take off. They often do quite a merry dance in the water and spin around as they get it set right in their talons, it's the difference between a good take off and a bad!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡There are a billion shots of ospreys taking off and that is always impressive. This though tells a different story with the osprey's wing providing the point of interest.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Nothing more cute than a Gentoo Penguin, they always make me laugh so much. This is the simplest portrait possible and one I hope you will love from the Falklands.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡The essence of any portrait is to capture personality. This penguin isn't doing much, it's very static and straight but somehow this has made it look like it's really friendly. Which it is!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The image that we have of Jay, the lovely sub-adult male in zone 6 that everyone is waiting to see if he stays or gets moved on by his father. I love following the life cycles of animals from young until maturity, we were so lucky to find him on this morning but we followed a hunch, took a chance and it all came good. Lovely little guy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌍 The recent census by the Indian government showed an increased in tiger numbers yes, but it did include young cubs too. So whilst it is great news we must not be complacent and must continue the fight against the main threats to the tiger, habitat loss and illegal trade in skins, bones, unmentionables and everything else.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It's #worldlionday and to celebrate I am reposting my most successful Lion image on IG. It's a beautiful shot of a mother nuzzling a tiny young cub, the youngest I have ever seen. Lions are in great danger throughout their range, declining at an alarming rate due to habitat destruction, poaching of prey and human conflict. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know it always seems doom and gloom with nature but in respect of lions it is something that can reverse. So you have two options:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Look up www.worldlionday.com and see their work and list of charities. Support one.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Support Panthera / WildAid- Google “Let Lions Live”- a great organisation who's projects are based on science and good field operations, they have several excellent lion programs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Whatever you do please do something today. It counts.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Another landscape and it's a lesson to everyone. Don't post on social media what everyone expects and don't just post for likes. Post what you want to, what inspires you and what is in your style. This is in my style, moody, atmospheric and hand-held as a tripod is impossible on a ship. Break the rules, it feel great! So enjoy arctic Svalbard at it's finest!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡I am learning a lot about the M43 sensor but landscapes are a new thing for me and it. Certainly I know that it of course doesn't quite have the dynamic range of the full-frame dslrs, that's not where it's advantages lie. But for images like this, where I am really pushing the file, it gives me a good starting point for my processing. I have had to be careful with the processing, that's a fact, but it's ok as I always am anyway. What counts is the result and not the journey and I think that the result is pretty damn good. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A view of the top of the earth and a change of pace for a couple of days. I don't consider myself a landscape photographer per say but I do spend my time in beautiful places so it seems a shame not to try at least. I've always loved shooting with a fisheye lens up here as it really accentuates the top of the world feeling. So here I used my Olympus one to take advantage of some very weird light conditions. Hope u like!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡A fisheye is a very forgiving lens so it always seems easy to use but it's far from it. The light has to be amazing for it to work best. Here I decided it was different enough that the fisheye would make something of it that other lenses wouldn't. I had to keep the shutter speed high to stop the motion of the ship.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌍 Polar Bears are under severe threat by hunting. Don’t support organisations that actively back and fund polar bear hunting and invasive / stressful / pointless research. Support @ojlwildphoto and his Polar Bears and Humans Project, it’s their only hope.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
