Urban foxes

Urban foxes


While many of us are tucked in bed the adaptable red fox take over our streets scavenging from our leftovers, hunting small prey and often being regularly fed by human admires. When we’re finishing our daily routines and beginning to wind down for the evening foxes are emerging from their daytime dens and retreats. These carnivores not only survive, but thrive in our cities mostly unnoticed by their human neighbours. In the urban environment they live a mainly nocturnal life but can be seen at sunset and as the first light of the day peeks over the horizon.

No other native British mammal divides opinion as much as the red fox. Many see them as vermin and a nuisance but in my opinion we should be proud to have them live alongside us. It’s an absolute privilege to able to watch and photograph these beautiful animals.

Foxes are part of the Canidae family but also share many characteristics with cats. They have retractable claws, slender bodies, long sensitive whiskers and vertically oriented pupils that allow them to see in low light. They’re very agile allowing them to navigate through the urban environment with ease. They even hunt in the same manner by stalking and pouncing on their prey.

Urban foxes beauty, charisma and adaptiveness to live many different enviroments makes them hands down my favourite wild animal to photograph. I want to tell this story and actively seek the common city scenes showing them going about their daily routines. Their iconic red fur and thick bushy tails set against man made build up environments packed full of colour, texture and variety creates endless photographic possibilities.

As you can probably tell I have fallen head over heels in love with this species and have dedicated countless hours in pursuit of the portfolio I have managed to put together. This is my largest project to date and the one I’m most proud of. Tenacity has paid off and given me some of my most treasured wildlife experiences all within minutes from home.
