Mike Potts has had a lifelong interest in Natural History and began his career in wildlife working for WWT in the early 1960’s. For the past 35 years he has been a Wildlife Cameraman, mainly for the BBC’s Natural History Unit.
Birds are his specialty and he has worked on many acclaimed BBC series such as "The Life of Birds", “Planet Earth” and many programmes in the Natural World series. A particular favourite was working with David Attenborough on “Attenborough in Paradise”, filming Birds of Paradise in the forests of New Guinea.
Mike’s last film was on Hummingbirds, but his greatest passion is still for wildfowl and he is now spending more time photographing them all over the world, most recently on the subantarctic islands of Auckland, Campbell and South Georgia. Many of Mikes pictures have been reproduced in magazines and books and he has had previous exhibitions at WWT centres at Slimbridge and Welney. This exhibition brings together photographs of wildfowl, seabirds and shorebirds taken over many years.
