Welcome to my website.
I am an enthusiastic amateur wildlife photographer, constantly on the lookout for new photographic opportunities. I have enjoyed photographing a huge range of animals from the massive blue whale to the smallest of creatures such as butterflies and dragonflies.
Except for the category ‘in captivity’, all of my photographs are taken in their natural environment and there is an emphasis, where possible, on capturing animal behaviour.
I have received commendations from the Bird Photographer of the Year competition (2017), and my images have been published in
On my site, you will find wildlife from my own garden and from some amazing places, including the Arctic and Antarctica, the USA and Canada, Central and South America, Australia, Europe, Africa, South-east Asia and the Indian sub-continent.

If you would like to buy any image, see a greater selection of any one species or if you are interested in something which is not exhibited, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I may have what you are looking for. The images on the site have been reduced in size but I have the originals.
The copyright to all of these images is mine. Until this year, I donated all income from my photography to Christians Against Poverty (CAP) and WaterAid. In 2019, I intend to help out a new charity based in Leeds called Zarach – http://zarach.org, whose strapline is ‘ We deliver beds to children that live in poverty.’ You can have a look at this charity, set up by a deputy head teacher who recognised a crucial need in her school and then others in the locality, by checking out Zarach via the link to the right of this page.
I live in Huddersﬁeld, West Yorkshire and conduct photographic presentations to a wide variety of groups, both private and public, in return for a charitable donation. My current subjects are:
New for 2019 are:
