“It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living”
— David Attenborough
I am a wildlife photographer, based near Bath in England's glorious West Country,
I spend my time travelling and photographing around Somerset and what used to be known as Avon as well as planning trips to nature hotspots around the UK and further afield.
I am a member of my local Cam Valley Wildlife group and take an active part in their conservation work, particularly the barn owl project that feeds in to the nationwide project.
