Ian Whiston’s ‘Alert Cheetah Mother’

This beautiful photograph of a cheetah mother and her cub was taken by our most qualified member Ian Whiston DPAGB EFIAP/s ABPE. It was awarded a top mark of 15 in this years L&CPU Annual Individual Competition. Ian also scored two 13s and a 14 in the competition which is quite an achievement. We’re so lucky to have Ian as a member for over 10 years and he’s consistently thrilled us with his superb images taken on his African safaris. He now holds well over 20 medals and countless awards. He is also a national and international judge and a respected safari guide. However, the best thing I like about Ian is his down to earth and modest attitude. He’s a dedicated committee member and is always happy to help and advise fellow members.
