Will Garfit was born in 1944 in Cambridgeshire where he still lives. He developed an award winning (Laurent Perrier, 1988 – now the Purdey Award) site of old gravel workings for wildlife and game which became the subject of a book Will’s Shoot in 1993, later as Will’s Shoot Revisited in 2005. He is well known to readers of the Shooting Gazette for whom he has written a monthly column on pigeon shooting since 1994. As a sporting artist he has been an exhibitor at the Tryon Gallery since 1981 and an illustrator of over thirty shooting and country sports books. He has appeared in the Top Ten Shots in various magazines and has sat on the Countryside Alliance Conservation and BASC Game Shooting committees.
