I have used Gitzo tripods for the past 25 years and they are engineered for the serious wildlife photographer. We work in some of the most challenging environments and we need our equipment to function and cope with the extreme weather conditions. Gitzo certainly does that.
Danny Green is a multiple award-winning wildlife photographer, based in the UK. He has been photographing the natural world for over 25 years and has always been a dedicated Canon shooter, mainly working with film in the early years and later fully embracing digital technology. His approach to photographing nature is a long process and he can sometimes spend months, if not years, working on subjects and projects.
He has won many prizes in some of the most respected wildlife photography competitions around the world. His work is represented by some of the leading natural history picture agencies and his images are published on a regular basis around the world.
For the past seven years Danny has been working on a project to document the Arctic and Subarctic regions of northern Europe. This body of photographic work formed the backbone of his new book ‘The Long Journey North’, released in 2014.
Danny had his first National Geographic feature published – on the Atlantic puffin – in the June 2014 issue and it was a very proud moment for him. The project spanned over five years and Danny visited some of the most beautiful colonies in the UK, Iceland and Norway in search of images of the iconic bird. He recalls: "It was one of the hardest projects I have undertaken as the demands and standards are so high when shooting for National Geographic."
