For twenty years John Aitchison has been travelling to distant places to film wildlife for the BBC and other broadcasters. The Shark and the Albatross is the story of his encounters with animals in remote, exotic, and dangerous places.
John Aitchison is a wildlife filmmaker. His many awards include a joint BAFTA and a joint Primetime Creative Emmy both for the cinematography of the BBC series Frozen Planet.
This is a lovely book, vividly written, giving us a fascinating insight into the world of wild life photography. It is a must for all those who enjoy insights into the natural world. * Alexander McCall Smith * a kaleidoscope of brilliant wildlife experiences not to be missed * - Sir John Lister-Kaye OBE, Conservationist and nature writer. * In a word, beautiful. John shares the experience of patiently waiting, then the euphoria of capturing the action; capturing the art in nature. * Bill Oddie * What adventures, what visions! You have to wonder whether John Aitchison is the luckiest man alive, given access through his persistence and empathy to everything this book contains: wolf whiskers covered in frost, the peregrine's view of the city far below as if the people there were the inhabitants of a distant sea floor, the everlasting grace of the albatross on a storm-trashed ocean. Here you'll find a version of the world which is more real, more intense and, sadly, more beautiful than the one most of us are forced to occupy. * Adam Nicolson *
