Thank you for visiting my web site and for your interest in my photography.
I’ve been hooked on photography since childhood and was making prints from black and white negatives in my early teens. I progressed to the 35mm film format and later purchased my first SLR camera, a Minolta SRT101 which served me well for many years before I made the switch to digital with my first DSLR camera, a Canon 20D. As an electronics engineer by trade with a lifelong interest in science, especially the Earth and Environmental Sciences, digital photography of our natural world somehow seems like it was inevitable.
I mainly specialise in photographing the beauty of nature, wildlife and macro subjects and aim to photograph as many different species of plants and animals as I can. Properly identifying the various species I photograph is an enjoyable challenge and one that I spend quite a lot of time on, but I'm not a scientist so some mistakes are inevitable and will be corrected as I become aware of them.
Some people have asked why I use the scientific (Latin) names for the flora and fauna species and their taxonomic groups rather than their common (English) names. I believe that the first step toward understanding something is to learn its correct name. Whilst all described species have a scientific name, many don’t have a common name, some have multiple common names, and sometimes a single common name is used for several very different species, so using their accepted scientific names is the best way.
I hope that through my photography others will find, as I have, a fascination for the natural world and the abundant variety of life that surrounds us. It’s easy to walk through a forest only seeing the trees but, if the time is taken to stop and sit in a quiet spot for even a short time, we begin to see a myriad of species all dependent upon one another for their survival, and ultimately we humans depend upon them for our own survival.
