Bio

My name is Julian Hough and I am originally from England, although I now reside in New Haven, Connecticut, USA with my son Alex.

My passion for birds led to extensive travel to far-flung corners of the globe, that has included extended periods in India, Nepal, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and most recently Central and South America. My penchant for American birding was nurtured and inspired by extended halycon periods in Cape May, New Jersey from 1987-1995.

I have been photographing birds for two decades and my current gear consists of a 400mm 5.6 Lens & 1.4x teleconverter & a Speedlite 550 EX Flash. Many of my images have been published in books & magazines across Europe and North America including Birding World, Birdwatch, Birding and many other periodicals.

Naturescape Images incorporates my work as a nature writer, photographer, Illustrator and graphic designer. As a widely published artist and writer, my work has been featured in many books, notably the recent, award-winning Rare Birds Where and When by Russell Slack (2009).

I currently serve on the CT Avian Rare Records Committee (ARRC) and am a member of Nikon’s Birding ProStaff. I use Nikon EDG 8×42 binoculars and a Nikon Fieldscope II telescope.

One of the fastest growing families in the industry, Nikon’s exclusive birding Pro Staff is comprised of the best known names and most recognized faces in birding.

    Hi Julian,
    About 20 years ago we bought 15 of your images for our birding software. We are now almost ready to launch a huge project offering free online bird quizzes. (www.WildBirds.com > Quizzes) I would like your permission to use the 15 photos of yours that we already have in this new online program. Thanks for your consideration.
