  2. It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of one of our long-standing members, Gary Coyle.
    Many visitors will recognise both his work as a sports photographer, and his name as a prominent community member. He registered with Talk Photography back in 2006, not long after the start of the site and has been a regular contributor since.

    It goes without saying that Gary will be sorely missed by many members, and his passing is a huge loss to the photography community.

    Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

    Funeral details :
    Dewsbury Crematorium
    Tuesday 13th September 2016 at 2pm.
    Afterwards at Batley IDLC (Batley Nash).
    All welcome.


    There is also a discussion thread here if anyone wishes to add their own thoughts.

    Hi everyone, just thought i would share this photo of one of the Tigers at Dartmoor Zoo taken on 24th December 2010. This was back when i had a 400 5.6 and a Canon 50d. Its probably the only shot i have taken which i liked! lol

    Its a great place to visit by the way especially for us photographers :)

    Thanks for all the comments, it is a great place for photography, no fences in the way of the Tigers, Cheetah's Bears

    Fantastic shot.

    The only thing I will mention, for me it would be perfect if you could see the pupils in the eyes but still a great shot.

    If you're ever down this way, you'll have to let me drag you there!

    It really is a great place for photography - the cats are in the main kept in by deep moats rather than fences so no shooting through.

    There was a meet there a couple of years ago - we arrived a bit late but still go in on the TP group price but didn't find the TP group. Well, we may have but there were 2 groups of photographers there that day - one lot in full came (I kid you not!) and another group in more normal clothing!

    Oh yeah! A great place for Tigers to be kept. They've got a whole 60yd. x 40yd. compound to themselves. Beats having the entire jungle to roam around in any time.
