About the guest

Sergey Gorshkov is an award-winning wildlife photographer who specialises in capturing incredible shots of wildlife in their natural habitat.

In particular, Gorshkov’s work focusses on tigers and his winning shot for Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 was his magnificent image ‘The Embrace’, of an Amur tigress hugging an ancient Manchurian fir in the Russian Far East. Amur, or Siberian, tigers are only found in this region and it took more than 11 months for the Russian photographer to capture this moment with hidden cameras.
