Dr Alex Tattersall has taken the runner-up prize in the 2013 Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards.

a place in the top 100 images of the year

For many years Alex has been working in partnership with dive stalwarts Oonasdivers to provide Underwater Photo Workshops in The Red Sea and more recently the Philippines. A couple of Alex’s masterpieces will feature on the Oonasdivers brochure cover shot for this year.

Being shortlisted in this competition is something to which photographers across the world aspire. Every year emerging talents compete with established names for a chance to be hailed Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Each of the thousands of annual entries is evaluated individually by an international jury of photography experts, before being awarded a place in the top 100 images of the year.

Alex Tattersall said: “I feel most at home when enveloped by crystal-blue warm water and was elated to get a series of shots documenting this fascinating behaviour”.

To learn more about Alex’s photography or to meet the man in person, head to DIVE 2013 on 26/27th October at the Birmingham NEC.

The exhibition is a must-see. For more about the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2013, check out the Natural History Museum website.
