Photos from several visits to my local zoo in Chester. Chester Zoo is the most popular visitor attraction in England outside London! It has 12,000 animals from 400 different species.

Every time I visit I discover a new animal and exciting opportunities to photograph animals I wouldn’t otherwise get to see. My favourite animal to photography is probably the giraffe. It’s the one animal you’re guaranteed to see every visit, they tend to move slowly which makes them easier to photograph.

I just love how their faces are so detailed and full of character; I think this one looks like he is pouting for the camera.
