 ​Welcome to my new web site and I do hope you will find something to enjoy and interest you.


​I was born in Oxford and have lived here all my life. As long as I can remember I have had an interest in the outdoors and nature. At first this became a passion for fishing but with the long hours of quietly sitting and waiting I observed many other aspects of the natural world and developed a desire to record mainly birds and mammals with a digital camera and lens. Although often to be found out in the field around Oxfordshire much of my spare time is also spent travelling to various parts of Britain to record anything that takes my fancy. As a consequence I have visited many places,some beautiful others not so pleasant,met many nice people and in many cases forged lasting friendships.I have also travelled abroad to the USA and plan to expand my horizons in the near future.


​If publishers,other forms of media or organisation involved in the conservation of nature would like to use any of the images you find here please feel free to contact me.


With all best wishes
