Hello and welcome to my photography website, I hope you take the time to look around and see some photos that you like. The gallery pages feature the very best of my photographs grouped into the main themes of my photography, Animal Photos, Landscape Photos and Everything Else! The Blog pages are more recent postings of news, photo trips and random thoughts that may prove of interest.
All the photos are regularly updated, and new galleries will appear as I photographs new subjects and locations, so please feel free to visit often to see new work.
The animal gallery pages contain photos of wild and captive animals. Living near Chester Zoo gives me a great opportunity to photograph exotic species which you wouldn’t usually find in the UK, albeit in a captive setting. There are also some photos here of wildlife I’ve been fortunate to see in their natural setting both in the UK and abroad.
If it’s not a scenic landscape, or doesn’t have an animal in it, then chances are you’ll find it’s photo in this section. While I have yet to seriously try portrait or other styles of photography, themes do emerge that are displayed here.

It was a case of being in the right place with the wrong kit this weekend and I had to race across the zoo to meet family and friends, just grabbing some snaps on my Nikon 1. I didn’t know the Cheetahs had some more cubs so
I had a chance to try something different this weekend, we were invited along with some family friends for a days waterskiing. I couldn’t resisit taking the camera along despite being a bit nervous at the thought of all that water near my kit as well as 2 young [...]
Sunday was very hot at Chester Zoo, the animals were all trying their best to avoid the sun. The Spectacled Bear was keen to play in its waterfall whilst the Cheetahs were looking for shade in the long grass.
