Josh Jaggard’s collection - titled Salthouse to Shetland - includes photos of puffins, otters, gannets, pheasants, owls and seals.

Some of the more than 30 photos in the exhibition were taken around Norfolk, and others were taken in the Shetland Islands, where Mr Jaggard works as a guide for other wildlife photographers for four months a year.

Mr Jaggard, 26, from Spooner Row, said: “I got into wildlife photography when I was about 16. It started off on family holidays when I saw snakes and other animals that I was interested in.

“The camera gave me the opportunity to document that wildlife and it developed from there.”

Mr Jaggard said patience and dedication were the keys to wildlife photography.

He said: “You have to spend a lot of time in the field and not give up.”

The exhibition starts tomorrow (Wednesday, April 19) and runs until May 2 at the Cley Marshes Visitor Centre in Clay next the Sea.

The photographs are also for sale.
