As a child I’d love to visit a local nature reserve with my Grandma. Every weekend we’d go down and have a walk round to see what wildlife was about; which is where my passion for the natural world really began. At the age of 12 and after saving all my pocket money I finally was able to buy my first camera off one of the regulars that we used to chat to; a Nikon D50. I do owe an awful lot of gratitude to my mate Nik as he taught me a lot of the basics of the camera and how to use it.
In 2011 I decided to change codes and buy a Canon 30d and shortly after I had enough money to purchase my first high powerful zoom lens, a Canon 100-400mm IS L series. Since my first camera I have managed to get through multiple cameras and I am now on my 5th, the Canon 7d mkii and have since upgraded to the mkii lens as well.
From studying photography at college I went on to study Photography for Digital Media at university, and it 2014 after 3 years of hard work I graduated with a 2:1. I currently work as a picture framer for Skelf Frames LTD and have lots of spare time for wildlife photography and adding to my yearly bird check list. My 2018 list finished on 254, best yet.
I hope you admire my photography and check back regularly to see updates to my blog and gallery to see what I have been up to. Go ‘like‘ my Facebook and ‘follow‘ my Twitter pages which I try to keep up to date as much as possible. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any queries you have about my work and feel free to pass it on to your friends.
