Dissertation inspires 'Wildlife Photograph of the Year' award win

A Salford University Graduate has been ruffling some feathers in the world of Wildlife Photography after scooping the 'Widlife Photograph of the Year' award.

Barrie Williams studied MA Wildlife Documentary Production before graduating in 2014. As part of his dissertation he created a short film about the breading seasons of seabirds on Noss, which went onto inspire his award-winning photograph.

Since graduation Barrie has become a researcher for BBC Scotland’s weekly magazine show ‘Landward’. He has appeared on BBC Breakfast, and of course, he scooped the big prize of ‘Wildlife Photograph of the Year’.
 
The photograph showcases the wildlife of Noss in a way that is rarely seen, please take a look at Barrie's website here to see more examples of his fantastic work.
