ACCLAIMED photographer Andy Rouse is putting on an event in Leeds that promises to be a really wild affair.
Andy will be appearing at the city’s Carriageworks arts complex later this year with a show featuring a collection of his stunning wildlife photos – and much more to boot.
The award-winning snapper will be speaking about his remarkable experiences taking pictures of animals such as bears, cheetahs and gorillas.
His show, entitled Wild About Animals, will also include a thought-provoking segment on the endangered rainforests of Madagascar.
Andy told the Yorkshire Evening Post: “My shows are a mixture of my award-winning images, anecdotes and irreverent chat as well as musical sequences set to toe-tapping music and fun videos.
“My aim is to inspire others to love the natural world as I do. Only by caring will we ever hope to conserve what we have got for generations to come.”
Andy has a proud record in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, winning nine awards in the space of just seven years.
He is also the current holder of the Cherry Kearton award for wildlife photography from the Royal Geographical Society.
He has published 18 books and has raised tens of thousands of pounds for tiger and gorilla conservation projects.
Andy’s previous shows have been performed as far afield as France, Germany, New Zealand and the USA.
Wild About Animals is being staged in the main auditorium at the Millennium Square-based Carriageworks on Wednesday, November 20.
Tickets cost £15 or £13 for concessions and are available now.
