Ray Collins’ dramatic wave photography


For Ray Collins, his knee injury was a blessing in disguise. He hurt himself while working in a coal mine, and then he had a surgery and then went to a rehab which put him on leave from his job for around 6 months. Ray spent a lot of his time just studying and reading, and then he decided to give photography a hand on. His doctor suggested swimming as an exercise for his injury, and more and more time in the water triggered his interest in underwater photography.

While speaking to a leading website, he told that the ocean has offered him so much. It is where his very first memories were made as an infant; it has taught him patience, taught him respect and served harness and control fear and change into an excitement. He has been around the sea his whole life, it is all he has ever known. Shooting waves just felt very natural. He treats each one like a subject sitting for a portrait. He want to show the differences in each because after they break that moment is lost forever.

Collins, from Thirroul in New South Wales, Australia, still acts upon as a coal miner in twelve-hour shifts 3 days a week. This leaves him 4 days a week to concentrate on his photography. On his days off, Ray studies virtual swell forecasts and ocean buoys, directions, windspeeds tides and sun position to figure out when he would be able to capture the best photographs.

Doug Allan’s passion for wildlife photography


There are not too many people who could just fill Mareel by telling tales, but Doug Allan, a wildlife photographer, did just that earlier on Thursday night. Well known for his polar snaps on the BBC series such as Planet Earth, Frozen Planet and Blue Planet Allan kept his three hundred and twenty strong audience captivated with his tales from the coldest regions of the planet.

On Thursday, Allan’s Shetland show was the best and last attended in a nineteen-date tour of islands and highlands, a tour that he depicted as “shorter than usual”. The photography career of the sixty three year old in photography started with a scope meeting with David Attenborough in the year 1983, when he was working for British Antarctic Survey.

Allan stated that it was very encouraging for him; and it gave him the assurance to abandon his full time job for a life behind the camera. For him, photography was a hobby that he shared with most people who were working in Antarctic, as well as combined with his love for diving as well as his conversancy with polar beasts made it the complete career move from marine science.

Shooting in the pole regions was new back in the early 80s, and for the next fifteen years he was involved in each single wildlife report from Antarctic as well as Arctic that he first visited in the year 1988.
