Russel Savory will be giving a talk this Wednesday.

A wildlife photographer who has featured on The One Show and BBC’s Springwatch will be giving a talk in Hornchurch.

Russel Savory is known for capturing wildlife “up close and personal” on film and will be speaking at Essex Wildlife’s Trust’s Ingrebourne Valley Visitor Centre in Hornchurch Country Park on Wednesday (October 24).

Russell has been perfecting the art of wildlife photography and filmmaking for the last 20 years, using his knowledge of locations to find wildlife, his equipment which uses many home-made devices, experimentation with shots and extreme patience.

Much of his work has featured around wildlife in Essex where he has managed to capture spectacular close-up footage of our local wildlife in their natural environment.

A spokeswoman from Essex Wildlife Trust said “We are very lucky to have Russell Savory sharing some of his secrets with us about what it takes to get the incredible wildlife photos and videos that he does. His footage is simply jaw-dropping so it’s going to be a really fascinating evening.”

The illustrated talk will take place from 7.30pm-10.30pm and tickets cost £8.

To buy tickets go to or call the centre on 01708 520364.
