We are excited to be joined by Award-winning Wildlife Photographer Sue Flood for an evening to hear all about her travels and latest book, Emporer: The Perfect Penguin.
Tickets are £19.50 and include a drink on arrival and nibbles.
Sue Flood is an award-winning photographer and filmmaker, zoologist, adventure travel leader and public speaker. Her work takes her all over the world but she has a special passion for the wildlife and icy beauty of the Polar regions and is one of the very few women professional photographers who returns again and again to Earth’s harshest and most demanding environments.
Her first visit to the Poles happened during her 11 years in the BBC’s prestigious Natural History Unit, working on such global hits such as The Blue Planet and Planet Earth, with Sir David Attenborough; on National Geographic and Discovery Channel co-productions and on the Disney nature movie Earth.
Since then, Sue’s travels as a photographer have taken her to hundreds of destinations on all seven continents and found her camping at -25°C amid penguins, capturing rare scenes in the African bush, living aboard Russian ice-breakers; exploring the vast Pantanal wetlands of Brazil, guiding trips to exotic parts of Asia and seeking out spirit bears in North America.
Sue was born and brought up in Wales and attended The Queens School, Chester before gaining a zoology degree from the University of Durham. When she is not in some far-flung location Sue lives with her husband Chris Graham in North Wales, UK.
Images and insights from Earth’s coldest places are collated in her two books – Cold Places, showcasing a rich variety of Polar people, wildlife and scenery, and the latest – Emperor: The Perfect Penguin – in praise of her favourite bird and its Antarctic home.
