Shooting in Banks: Guns, Ducks and a glass of Port. / by andy schofield

A couple of weeks ago I was able to complete a personal shoot project that I have been thinking on for awhile now. I spent the day with a family friend, Alan Rimmer and his shooting buddies. Alan was especially keen for me to meet the characters from his group and create some shots of their activities. The birds have all been hand reared, fed and allowed to roam free. All the birds shot will be eaten. 

It was interesting to see the dedication that the group had to hunt these birds. The control they had over their dogs was excellent and you could tell the dogs enjoyed themselves even though they had their work cut out for them.  We spent over 4 hours, covering a large farm area and managed to get a significant haul.
