We are delighted to announce that we now represent Stephen Dalton and more than 2000 of his finest images are now available from www.naturepl.com.



Stephen is the acknowledged master of high speed photography and developed many of the techniques nearly 40 years ago which made it possible to capture in both single images and multiple exposures creatures in motion, from bees and birds in flight and leaping grasshoppers to diving frogs, gliding lizards and the famous basilisk running across the water's surface.



His work is very international in emphasis, with many familiar British and European species plus a range of more exotic creatures from Africa, Asia and the Americas. Stephen has published many books, including titles on British habitats, high speed photography, flight, rainforests and most recently spiders. He lives in Sussex and many of his images are taken in the beautiful woodland and farmland of the Sussex Weald.
