Contact & About

Hello!
Thanks for dropping by.




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

I sell prints, talk a bit, scribble a bit, work at workshoping, musician 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!



I had the good fortune of my mother instilling a love of nature from an early age.
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.
All wildlife is interesting and not just the iconic or the cuddly.

All images are wild, no flash or flush, no paid hides 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, we are just mucking around with a camera!

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