Peter Haken a wildlife photographer and videographer based in Newquay Cornwall specialising in British wildlife photography in the South West UK.
My passion for nature photography came about when I heard the roar of a Red deer stag on Exmoor. Getting up at dawn and venturing out around Cornwall and Devon, with no preconceptions of what to photograph, just letting the sun rise showing me the way.
My father was an avid photographer and wildlife lover, so from a young age I always had a camera to hand and my life was spent in the great outdoors, building dens, watching hares and getting muddy.
I learnt to photograph wildlife on a Zenith Practica MTL5 film camera but with the advance of technology most of my wildlife is shot in the digital format, although I do love my medium and large format for sea and landscape photography.
