I am a great fan of this series of publications. The photos are usually nearly all exceptional. I can appreciate the technical excellence of this edition but for me they came across as less appealing than recent previous editions. Still worth the low price I paid but a little disappointing. My son who went to the exhibition told me that when seen as back lit large images they were indeed stunning. I think that some have not worked so well as much smaller prints even though the reproduction on paper is as good as ever.

When I first saw the cover photograph of Wildlife Photographer of the Year I knew immediately I had to see the rest!
Wildlife is very dear to me and the contents of the book brought it home how wonderful it is.
Amazing photography and stunning compositions make a really tremendous book.
The patience needed to capture many shots and expert knowhow of the photographers is clearly seen and must have been extremely difficult to decide on the winners.
Wildlife Photographer of the year Portfolio 22 is a must book to have and congratulations to all category winners.
Cannot wait for next publication!

By Peppers #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 26 Dec. 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
We buy the latest volume of this "Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio" as a matter of routine every year. This latest version "Portfolio 22" lives up to the usual high standard in terms of the pictures it contains. What is slightly below par is the layout which seems to favour the use of smaller pictures this year even though the overall size of the book remains the same. To me, the stunning photographs that have been contributed would look even better in a slightly larger format which could easily have been accommodated in the same format of book. (This was the format used in earlier portfolios).

In summary, still an exceptional volume, and, well worth waiting the year for, although, the photographers' achievements could have been showcased in a slightly more appealing format Perhaps next year the publishers will revert to the layout used in previous years. However, still a sufficiently high quality book in terms of both form and content to merit an above average rating. Recommended.

My brother is very hard to buy for as he is a keen photographer so most presents that would be ideal for him would cost a fortune. We saw the exhibition advertised when we were in London but unfortunatly it was on a day that it was closed, we found this book in the book shop but decided to see if we could find a cheaper price online. The imagery is amazing and as my brother said (having entered for Landscape photographer of the year) it s****s all over the Landscape photographs (no offence anyone). The one thing to note is that this book does show some images that some people might be sensitive too (they aren't pleasant) but this is the reality of living in this world.
This book was a brillaint christmas present and has inspired the whole family to try to take photos of wildlife. The book is quite large but as it is a picture book this makes for clear photos. There are some truely amazing photos, my favourites being the turtle and fox.

I buy a copy of this book each year after seeing the main exhibition. The photographs in each exhibition are better of course as they are larger and backlit but the books are a lasting memory of them. At the exhibitions I always choose my favourites but sitting down with the latest book and a cup of coffee I often change my mind when back home. Looking forward to next years book.

As ever fantastic photos to supplement the exhibition shown in London each year at the Natural History Musuem. This is a great souvenir to have. The quality of photos and standards of the competition just keep on getting better. The patience of the amateur photographers always amazes me but as the photos demonstrate the wait is always worth it.

This book showcases the best of the best & is packed with powerful images, some disturbing, of our wildlife. The standard of photography is top drawer & as an enthusiastic amateur I am also interested in the technical aspects of each work.
