About me!

I was lucky enough to grow up in South East Cornwall, near to the Rame Peninsula and Whitsands Bay, and have always loved watching and observing the wildlife and the natural world around us. Gradually I started to try to take photos of what I was watching and now I am lucky enough to be able to make my living as a professional  photographer Incorporating my wildlife, landscape and dog photography. 

Now living in the  heart of Wiltshire  I have easy access to some very special parts of the UK  both to observe  and photograph our indigenous wildlife.

I always shoot with the aim and intention of turning my work into a print for display. We may be in the digital age, but for me a photo is not complete and cannot be admired or viewed properly until it has been printed and mounted. 

The wildlife or subject comes first ! Without question, before any ideas of taking a photo of any animal or bird or plant etc., the welfare of the subject comes first. Sometimes it is better to just observe and have the memory, rather than to risk disturbing them just for the sake of a photo. Remember, there's always another day!

Please visit the relevant pages within the website for details regarding any prints, fine art print sales, information about future workshops and 1-2-1 tuition.  Any questions then please contact me directly via the contact form.

My work has been published widely in magazines and various other media.  My work is sold worldwide through several  photo agencies  .          

As well as wildlife photography, I am also an award winning dog photographer. For more Information about my dog photography, please visit the relevant page from menu.

I do not use or own Photoshop as I have never needed it and all my images are edited to be as true to what I witnessed  at the time I pressed the shutter as possible.
