A lifelong interest in the natural world led me to joining the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust where I have managed one of their SSSI reserves, Epworth Turbary in North Lincolnshire, for 42 years. The first 10 years of retirement was spent doing contract work on this and other reserves, photography taking a back seat.
I am now President of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, having previously served as Chairman. For the Trust’s 60th anniversary I wrote and designed a book on their reserves, “Wild Lincolnshire”, which sold out in three months and produced an income for the Trust of £8000.
I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society and served on the committee of the Nature Group for 13 years during which time I was Chairman for 2 years.
In the early days most of my photography took place within the county of Lincolnshire, including images taken in our large 2 acre garden which has been created to encourage wildlife.
I still take many images in the garden but since retiring I have visited many countries round the world to capture images including numerous trips to N and S America, Africa, Europe and other locations such as India, the Falklands and Galapagos.
Although I concentrate on photographing species from insects, plants, reptiles, birds and mammals I now also tackle landscapes and a few images of people have been included in my travels round the planet. The galleries have been created to cover species rather than covering everything from one location.
I am available to give illustrated talks on the trips places visited and photography. Please contact me to book a talk.
