Since 2006 I have become hooked on D-SLR photography, primarily focusing on wildlife, in particular birds. This website aims to showcase the best images I have managed to take over the years.

I am based in the West Midlands, but right on the border of Worcestershire, so have adopted that county as my usual stomping ground. Being a member of the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust (and occasional volunteer) I spend a great deal of time at their reserves, with Upton Warren being a particular favourite.

That said, if time and weather permits, I do enjoy exploring the UK, and have found Scotland to be a wonderful place to go to for photography. Not only does it have stunning scenery, but also supports wildlife that cannot be seen anywhere in England or Wales (alas!). I try to head north of the border every year, visiting the Western Isles and the Highlands most often.

Please check my Blog (see Links Page) for more details of trips I've made. With the arrival of Spring each year, I usually make my way to mid-Wales, to explore the ancient woodlands, which I have found to be the best places for migrants such as flycatchers and redstarts. Skomer island is a heavenly location in early Summer and the Elan Valley is beautiful later on. Last but not least, England is my home and aside from local delights, I love to spend breaks on the east coast, in Norfolk mainly. A hotspot for coastal birds, plus barn owls and harriers. Somerset and its Levels, on a warm day in Spring can be unbeatable, with bitterns, harriers and hobbies to point the camera at.

While I currently do not offer photography tuition or days out, I am happy to help with any questions you may have on technical matters, be them with using cameras or the image-processing side of this hobby. Please drop me an email and I'll try to assist.

All images of birds and animals on this site are from the wild. There are no captive species at all.
