David Shepherd, CBE, FRSA, FRGS, OBE.
In 1976, his autobiography, 'The Man Who Loves Giants', was published and rapidly became a best seller. He revised and updated it in 1989. 'A Brush with Steam' was published in 1984 and in October 1985, The Man and His Paintings' was published, which, for the first time, brought together in a single volume a fully representative selection of his work. In 1992, 'An Artist in Conservation' was published, which is a stunning collection of the best of his wildlife art with over 90 colour plates.

In October, 1995 , 'My Painting Life' and 'Only One World' were published and in 2004 his latest book, 'Painting with David Shepherd, His Unique Studio Secrets Revealed' was published.

TV Documentaries

In 1972 the BBC produced his life story 'The Man Who Loves Giants', a 50-minute documentary film, narrated by his friend, the late James Stewart, and which has been shown all over the world.

Other documentaries for television have also been made, including 'Last Train to Mulobezi'; this film tells the epic story of the rescue from the Zambezi Sawmills Railway in Zambia of an ancient locomotive and railway coach and their 12,000 mile journey back to Britain. These were presented as a gift by His Excellency, Dr Kenneth Kaunda, the then President of Zambia, after raising funds with other artists, (through an auction of seven paintings in the USA). This enabled him to buy a helicopter, which he presented to the Government of Zambia for anti-poaching work.

In 1988 he made the series 'In Search of Wildlife' with Thames TV; a series of six half-hour films, featuring endangered mammals throughout the world. These have subsequently been shown in the United States of America on the Public Broadcasting Channel. Also in 1990 he made the first programme in the annual series of 'Naturewatch' with Julian Pettifer; and has been the 'target' for 'This is Your Life'.

David today
"An artist who seems to stride across continents". In today's scheme of things, he is a larger-than-life figure who is regarded by many people as being the world's leading wildlife painter. His signed, limited edition prints can be seen in many homes throughout the world and he lives life at a dizzying pace, enjoying it to the fullest.

"I want to live to be 150. It will take that long to do everything I want to do. Unlike some people who perhaps lead a humdrum existence, I run almost everywhere I go because I am so anxious to get on with the joy of what I am doing next."

Mr Shepherd celebrated his 70th birthday on 25th April 2001 with a fundraising dinner at the Natural History Museum which made over £100,000 for wildlife projects.
His 80th birthday in 2011 was held at the same venue, and proved to be an exciting and fascinating evening with many celebrities achieving record amounts for the protection of endangered animals and world conservation.

David Shepherd lives with his wife Avril in Sussex. His four daughters all share his passion for conservation and are involved in the work of various wildlife projects throughout the world.
