Over the last few years, Cameron Yarrow regularly joined the Yarrow team on their highly researched trips to all parts of the globe. Learning from the absolute best in the trade Cameron Yarrow’s photographs – at the age of just 16 – show that whilst developing his own style he is not taking his scholarship lightly and his photography has increasingly been recognised.
In the summer of 2018 high up in the tundra of Alaska, in miserable weather conditions, Cameron took a picture of a rushing bear that caught International attention and admiration. He went onto to win the National Geographic “Top Shot” competition with this image. In 2019, the young photographer’s work matured further and got him from wild bears in Alaska to working with lions and elephants in Tanzania to standing eye-to-eye with Bengal tigers in India. In the pursuit of the perfect frame Cameron is quickly learning to master the challenge of photographing wild animals at close range. His mentor teaches him to be very tough in his analysis of his work and working with top end Nikon equipment ensures strong resolution and clarity. Only when compositional tightness and perfect timing come together the result satisfies the young talent and it is this self-criticism that makes his photo’s stand out.
Cameron Yarrow has a passion and dedication for the trade and his portfolio is gradually growing with outstanding strong and technically perfect images. Promising signs of a big career laying ahead of this diamond in the rough.
