Wildlife | Nature Photographer
Thank you for taking the time to look at my images, it is appreciated.
Born on the banks of Lake Windermere, I spent my formative years in the Warwickshire and Worcestershire countryside where my love of conservation and wildlife was nurtured.
Graduating in the early 70's with a bunch of qualifications and certificates I tried my hand at many different types of photography, from news and editorial work to weddings and portraits.
In 1981 I applied for and was successfully appointed as a photographer at the then British Museum (Natural History), now The Natural History Museum, in London, where I worked my way to becoming a Senior Scientific Photographer. In March 2015 I retired after 34yrs and now specialise in Nature and Wildlife photography, particularly enjoying close up and macro photography.
In the late 80s I was made an Associate of the British Institute of Professional Photography (ABIPP) for my scientific work.
