Welcome to professional wildlife and travel photographer Sue Flood’s website. I'm currently at home in North Wales for a few months - my longest spell in the UK for almost 20 years. However, I'm very busy with editing and labelling photos from a wonderful trip to Papua New Guinea in the Autumn, and a month in Africa in December, so my time at home is not particularly relaxing - if only the editing and labelling was as enjoyable as taking the images!
So what's in store in 2013? In March I'll be speaking at Focus on Imaging, Europe's biggest camera show, as part of Manfrotto's School of Xcellence. In early May I'll be teaching a one-day course for beginners and another for intermediate photographers at Chester Zoo. Then I set sail as part of the Expedition Team onboard Silver Explorer for Silversea Expeditons around the UK before heading to one of my favourite destinations, Svalbard, to photograph polar bears and other spectacular Arctic wildlife.
In late June, I’ll be warming up in Zambia again teaching another photography course at The Bushcamp Company in Zambia (which is already sold out!), then guiding for private clients on an 8 day safari to the South Luangwa valley, and a luxury 5 day gorilla safari to Rwanda. Steppes Discovery offer some exceptional wildlife experiences whilst supporting local conservation and community projects around the world and I’m looking forward to guiding for them again in 2014 in Zambia, the Pantanal, and Svalbard and Madagascar in 2015.
From late August to early December I'll be part of the Expedition Team on board Silver Explorer in Greenland, the Canadian Arctic, Dominican Republic, Caribbean, Venezuela, Bonaire, Columbia, Panama and Costa Rica. Then in November I will be joining Quark Expeditions on a wonderful trip to South Georgia and the Falkland Islands in November 2013 on board Ocean Diamond, followed by two trips to the Antarctic. So I’ll be ready for a break by Christmas 2013….
I'm already getting booked up for 2014 and in January will be heading off to Asia with SeaDream Yacht Club, photographing some of their fabulous destinations on their new Far East itinerary. Then later in the year will be working in the Galapagos and also Svalbard for Silversea again.
