I trained as an Air Photography Operator with the Royal Air Force at RAF Cosford in 1974. I was then posted to RAF Brampton and then moved into the The Joint Air Reconnaissance Intelligence Centre (JARIC) working with air reconnaissance and satellite imagery.
In 1978 I joined a commercial photography studio as a printer before moving to Cambridge University where I photographed manuscripts, rare books and special collection items. In November 2013 I was made redundant from the job I had loved for 33 years in a restructure which decimated the service provided by the department, no longer does customer service count.
I gained my City & Guilds certificate in General Photography in 1984 and was a Licentiate of the British Institute of Professional Photography from 1987 before transferring to The Royal Photographic Society.
Although I am a professional photographer this wildlife photography is completely new to me and has kept me going after the death of my lovely mum.

Thanks for you comment on Kelsey series. Thought I'd check out your pf and wow! Though it's not an area of photography I have delved into, the quality of your images shouts out clearly from the page.

thank you for the comment on my picture today, it has led me to look at your wonderful world of macro, something I have not really tried, but it is a facinating and beautiful world as shown by the many magical images in you pf, I adore your latest one especially and as said above you could make a tv series of them. Great stuff, an inspiration to us all.
