I've been involved with photography for longer than I'd perhaps like to remember! I had my first camera as a teenager and used it as much as I could to photograph aircraft on my regular visits to Birmingham airport.                                                                                                              

I was, I'm afraid to admit, a childhood spotter! And even today still retain that lifelong love and interest in aircraft.

My interest in wildlife developed from an early age, but was really re-kindled in the early eighties when i lived in Germany as I enthusiastically tried to photograph wild boar in a local wood, at the same time as seeing a slide show from fellow wildlife photographer Tony Wharton.  

The rest, as they say, is history.

Having spent a great deal of my working life in aviation, firstly as an air traffic controller and then as an airport manager, I am now a UK based professional wildlife photographer, leading my own series of Photo-tours designed as small group tours and organised specifically for the wildlife photographer and nature lover.

Through photo-tours I have been involved with the Falkland Islands for many years and was fortunate enough to have been invited by the Falkland Islands Government representative to stage an exhibition of my images from the Islands at Falkland House in London in 2005.

I hold the distinctions of Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS) and Photographer of Excellence of the FIAP(EFIAP). And currently proudly serve as the Chair of the prestigious RPS Associateship & Fellowship(A&F) Nature distinctions panel as well as being a past Chairman of the RPS Nature Group. 

I hope you enjoy your visit to the site, if you do Please take a minute to Sign the Guest book it would be greatly appreciated and i'd love to hear from you .

To keep up to date with my latest work do check out the 'Latest Images' and 'Photo of the Month' galleries.

A lot of my work doesn't fit within the page format of the current sites galleries, so the 'Latest Images' section will always contain the most up to date work which isn't necessarily covered anywhere on the sites other pages - I guess a sort of day to day imaging 'Blog'. 

To view the images select the galleries from the list on the left hand side of the home page.

In the galleries where the images are displayed as bordered thumbnails, click on the individual image to enlarge.
