  Photographic Gallery - Andrew Smith, 30 years of field collecting  
 

For over thirty years Andrew Smith has been travelling abroad collecting tropical insects and spiders. Even as a young teacher he would immediately fly out in the first week of the summer holidays to collect bugs in some far distant country. We thought you would like to take a look at a few photographs taken over the last thirty years! The obvious joy of finding a new bug or spider or even a snake can be ascertained in every picture.

Andrew Smith also spends many hours collecting spider and insect folklore, which he gathers from tribal elders and itinerant workers. In India, such an encounter led to an Adivasi tribal member teaching Andrew the secret of the great Indian snake trick. Field work, all of which, as you can imagine, ensures that our workshops are genuine and totally original.

The photographs that can be found here of Andrew (with various small friends) were taken in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, South Africa, India, Ghana and Mexico - in approximate order. You will note that in early images Andrew has dark hair - which recedes as the beard gets longer.
