Wildlife and landscape photographer George McCarthy will be presenting the annual James Bunn Memorial Lecture next week at St Ives Photographic Club.

McCarthy has had work published in books and magazines worldwide.

Some of his latest work took him on a journey – along with his wife Angie – across America, starting at the Atlantic coast in Florida and finishing on the Pacific coast in California along with forays over the borders of Mexico and Canada.

In total the couple visited 29 states, including Alaska, and drove the infamous 1,500 mile Alaskan Highway.

They were charged by a Grizzly in Yellowstone and later, along with two other photographers, was charged by a Black Bear in Wyoming.
