GWCT Scotland will be hosting an evening with Neil to discuss his life growing up in a family of deer stalkers and his most recent book, “Chasing the deer”.
Guests will arrive at 6.45pm for a drink before the Q & A with Neil, hosted by Linda Mellor with questions from the floor.
About Neil McIntyre
Neil lives and works in the Cairngorm National Park where he runs his wildlife photography tours and image library. His work is widely published and used in many national magazines like the BBC Wildlife magazine and national newspapers while Nature Scot, the Cairngorm National Park Authority and the John Muir trust are amongst his clients. He has won many awards over the years in Wildlife Photographer of the Year competitions including the Eric Hoskings Award two years running.
Following the success of his first book “The Red Squirrel – A Future in the Forest” he decided to attempt a second book, this time focusing on the red deer in the Scottish Highlands. “Chasing the Deer” was published in October 2021 and will be discussed on the evening. Neil has been fascinated by red deer all his life and they have been central to his careers and in this stunning collection of photographs he invites you to know and respect them as he does.
Neil will have copies of his book at the event to purchase or they can be purchased in advance online and he would be happy to sign them on the evening.
