Nelson photographs brilliantly colourful frogs at her home in Bristol.
She began taking pictures of frogs from her own collection after she was
diagnosed with ME
, leaving her housebound.
said: "I thoroughly enjoy working with frogs and I just love everything
about them from their amazing colours to their interesting behaviour.
My partner owns two reptile shops and at home we have three species of
frogs. They need a lot of care and you need to keep them spotlessly
clean in order to keep them healthy. Quite often when we get a new order
of frogs in at one of the shops I will take them home to quarantine
them and make sure they are healthy before we sell them on."
said: "I run a workshop for other photographers who want to photograph
reptiles and I'm careful to remind them that the frogs cannot be left
out too long because they get very distressed. I spend a long time
setting up the lighting and the sets and then only when everything is
ready do I place the frog in the scene and take the pictures. How they
pose or what they do is up to them."
