THE British Wildlife Photographer of the Year Matt Doggett took a packed room of more than 100 people on an incredible underwater journey at Moors Valley Country Park.

Dr Doggett, speaking at a special preview of the British Wildlife Photographer Awards exhibition, showed a wide range of his work, from meerkats in South Africa to the first photograph of a snakelock anemone shrimp in Britain – under Swanage Pier.

Dr Doggett’s winning image was shot underwater off the coast of Scotland and depicts the clean lines of the gannets as they dive for mackerel.

Following his still presentation, he treated his audience to a short video shot underwater.

The scenes of underwater rivalry showed how difficult it must be to capture one striking image.

Images of British wildlife, including Dr Doggett’s winning Gannet Jacuzzi, form the British Wildlife Photographer Awards exhibition at Moors Valley Country Park until March 17.
