Taking a Photograph of a Bird's Nest, c.1900

Richard and Cherry Kearton taking a photograph of a bird's nest by National Media Museum

A photograph showing Cherry Kearton standing on his brother Richard’s shoulders to take a picture of a bird’s nest, 1900.

The brothers were pioneers of wildlife photography and in 1892 took the first ever photograph of a bird’s nest with eggs. In 1899 they published 'With Nature and a Camera' illustrated with 160 photographs. Richard went on to develop the photographic hide, after a series of experiments one of which involved hiding in a stuffed ox in order to obtain better pictures.

  2. Wow! Rare collection. I appreciate your post. As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs. thanks all!!
