I was recently commissioned by BBC Countryfile Magazine to photograph Richard Head, one of the most respected bowyers in the UK, who makes yew longbows by hand in his Wiltshire workshop. This month marks the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. On October 25th In 1415, the heavily outnumbered English defeated an army of French cavalry against all odds and the victory was largely due to the French being outgunned by the English, whose archers wielded the famous English longbow. War is nothing to be celebrated, but this was a significant moment in British history, which will be commemorated this month with displays of archery and battle reenactments. Stories about passionate people inspire me nearly as much as wildlife and I always appreciate the opportunity to meet interesting people and shoot their portrait.
