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’, I take my subjects in their natural environment with an emphasis, where possible, on capturing animal behaviour.
I have received commendations from the Bird Photographer of the Year competition, and my images have been published in
My images have also been used by the artists listed to the right of this page.
On my site, you will find wildlife from my own garden and from some amazing places, including the Arctic regions 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. I donate all income from my photography to a relatively new charity based in Leeds called Zarach – http://zarach.org, whose strapline is ‘ We deliver beds to children that live in poverty’. You can check 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:
