I have been interested in the great outdoors for as long as I can remember, at about eleven years of age I was given a camera by my father and so began my foray into wildlife photography.
Photography has been my profession for the past thirteen years and in that time a lot has changed , film has come and gone and digital has arrived which has opened up so many possibilities.
My subject matter varies but my main interest is British Wildlife with the odd trip abroad to cover subjects that are difficult to photograph here or are missing altogether such as bears,wolves etc but my aim is to continue to document the wildlife that the UK has to offer in all its shapes and forms.
