I have been interested in nature since I was about eight when we used to have family picnics in the woods on Sundays.

My interest in photography started a little later when I was given my first camera for Christmas - a Kodak Brownie 44A. I must have been ten or eleven.

Combining nature and photography has taken some time and it was not until I bought a digital SLR in 2005 that, for me, this became a practical possibility.

Whilst interested in all wildlife, my most frequent subjects are birds. I also have a fondness for reptiles and insects.

I was fortunate to have three photographs of garden birds featured in 'Photography Monthly' magazine in May 2008.

I am a member of the Natural World Photographic Society.
