I began taking pictures at the age of 10 with a plastic compact camera (pinched from my sister) on holiday in the south of France. At 16 I was given a secondhand Nikon F60 for my birthday, the beginning of a love affair with black and white photography. I got my first DSLR when I turned 23 and used it to photograph London and concerts to support my music journalism. I turned to photographing wildlife and landscapes a couple of years later. Now I am a digital photography enthusiast.
I love the immersive world of macro photography. My lens is a Sigma 105mm f2.8. I also like using a simple kit lens or 35/50mm ‘prime lens’ generally. You can see a selection of my nature photography here.
Below are my latest photo essays based around attempts to explore landscapes, species and ecosystems through photography. The main aim for me is to have fun with photography, learn from others and draw attention to nature, its wildlife and landscapes. In truth it is just a good way to relax.
