Hello!
Thanks for dropping by.




Wildlife, nature and feathered friend photographer, Olympus bloke, light fiend, rain hater, tea lover, biscuit consumer, veganist.

I sell prints, talk a bit, scribble a bit and am a big fan of finding interesting ways of photographing local wildlife.

There's nothing better than laying silently in something I shouldn’t, while waiting patiently for the shot that doesn’t happen! Other than a cup of tea and a Rich Tea maybe?


Wildlife is the reason I pick up the camera but the camera makes me go out to see it more often.
It is far more important than pressing the shutter button and its wellbeing always comes first. Animals
are not on this planet for our pleasure to do with it what we will but to live alongside and respect.

Unless stated, all images are wild, no flash or flush and never baited (other than bird seed). Wildlife photography is not an at 'all costs' pursuit, if you think it's wrong it probably is, it's just photography!

Get in touch whichever way you want, email, contact form below, direct message, carrier pigeon....
