HH's work in WDEA

Nearly 20 of my images were commissioned for the new Whales and Dolphins of the European Atlantic published by WildGuides. Pictures aside, this is a top quality publication with superb design and authoritative text. In short, a must-have field guide and can be ordered here.

Brian Clews of WildGuides writes:

"The first edition of this book remained the first comprehensive photographic guide to the cetaceans of the European Atlantic to the present day. This 2nd edition takes us further and has been updated and enlarged to include a larger geographical area and to take account of the increase in our knowledge of identification features, incorporating the latest distribution information and based on hundreds of year-round surveys. The page layout is designed for ease of use while at sea or when watching from land. With new colour illustrations and photos, including many by Hugh Harrop, this book continues to be the ideal identification guide to the regions cetaceans."
