Somerset (West Country, UK) based amateur photographer with a passion for photographing nature and the outdoor environment.
Inspired by my Dad, I have been interested in photography from an early age. I acquired my first SLR camera (a second hand Pentax) in my teens and then graduated to Dad’s cast off Ricoh a few years later. Later like most photographers I made the leap to Digital and have been a Nikon user ever since.
What was intended to be a short career break got somewhat extended first by a broken ankle and then by a global pandemic. During the resulting lockdown my love for photography and the wildlife and natural environment on my doorstep deepened. Sharing my photographs on social media with the intention of brightening people’s day, I then began to turn some of them into artworks for greetings cards and other items.
