About the Book
I have been an enthusiastic amateur photographer since my school days, and a keen club photographer for many of those years. I have spent most of my adult life working in Southampton and now in retirement in Gosport, both on the south coast of England. I have taken photographs of many subjects over the years, but I have always been interested in photographing in close-up the small things in nature that we usually only glance at in passing. if we see them at all. More recently I have become a keen bird photographer, which will be the subject of my next book. In 1988 I gained a Licentiateship in the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) in the Nature Prints category. I progressed to the Associate level (ARPS) in 1994 with a panel of Pictorial slides. Finally, in 2000, I gained a Distinction in the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (DPAGB) with a panel of my prints.
