Togo’s Journey

A one year old harbour seal called Togo made an incredible journey on Thursday; he travelled from the Fisheries and Maritime Museum in Esbjerg, Denmark to Aberdeen airport and on to his new home at St Andrews Aquarium. I was there to capture his arrival in Scotland and his onward journey. You’ll see much more of Togo and the Aquarium’s resident seal, Laurel, very soon.

Meerkats at St Andrews Aquarium

I have good and bad news from St Andrews Aquarium. Sadly, we said goodbye to their original baby meerkat (Piper) this week. He was suffering from a malformation of joints that was causing him some pain and the Aquarium team had to make a very hard decision. Piper was an amazing wee creature and he’ll be sadly missed. He was the star of many of my most popular photos and I enjoyed spending some more time with him a couple of weeks ago; he was great fun and was thriving in his role as big brother to a bunch of new babies.

So that brings me onto the good news.

Kate and Wills gave birth to five new wee ones a few weeks ago and here are a few meerkat family photos I took during my last visit. Unsurprisingly, you’ll see many more pictures soon.

Rolf & Fozzie

Allow me to introduce you to Rolf and Fozzie. They are not only gorgeous baby guinea pigs, they’re also my new live-in models so expect to see a lot of them.

Bohemian Meerkats!

Here’s your first glimpse of St Andrews Aquarium‘s new baby meerkats! They have five but one of them sat out this photo so the others could do Bohemian Rhapsody. Squeal! Many more photos to come soon.

Cute Overload

I always have a good day when it involves animals. I spent hours photographing baby meerkats, Laurel the seal and some pretty fish at St Andrews Aquarium today. Everyone posed beautifully for me and I can’t wait to show you the pictures. I also enjoyed some cuddles with three silly spaniels and now I’m home to my baby guinea pigs. Cute overload!

I’ll share the photos soon but, as a teaser, this is an iPhone snap of a few meerkats and you can see my previous meerkat photos on my Flickr site.

The Meerkat Guide to Royal Weddings

I paid another visit to the meerkats at St Andrews Aquarium yesterday to produce photos for a Royal Wedding press release. Kate & Wills met there so it’s the perfect place to celebrate the occasion!

It was a particularly hard shoot as the meerkats weren’t very interested in the props we supplied; in fact, they were interested in everything but! They kept wandering over to my cameras and even took some time to sniff my arm but we kept playing until they hung around the red, white and blue paraphernalia.

Some of the photos were just begging for captions so we joined forces and the lovely Tricia from Volpa PR has produced this brilliant video. Sit back and enjoy some wedding wisdom from our meerkat friends:

Visit Flickr to see the meerkat photos from my last visit; I’ll put together a gallery of new ones in the next day or two.
