I was fortunate to have spent much of my up-bringing in East Africa and naturally developed a love for the wildlife that was so abundant at that time. On leaving school I obtained a degree in Zoology from Manchester University but it was only later that my passion for the natural world was re-kindled, largely by linking it to my other love – photography.
I started taking an interest in photography at the age of 13 with my first real camera, a Zenith E. I recall spending hours stalking lizards with this and my next camera, an Olympus OM-10, in our garden in the southern Sudan during my school holidays. I was then side-tracked by pursuing another career and was only really drawn back to photography when I bought my first digital camera.
My wife, Lisa, and I spent eight years living in the southern part of Greece in an area blessed with some wonderful mountain scenery and deep gorges. This in combination with the changes that occurred through the seasons and the wonderful light quality provided excellent opportunities for me to hone my landscape photography skills.
Images from the region can be seen in my recently published 10 x 8 inch coffee-table book, Light on the Mani. Copies can be previewed and ordered from the bookstore at Blurb.com
We are currently based in South Devon, another area rich in natural beauty.
