Filed in Articles, In the Press on Jan.22, 2019

In February’s issue of Bird Watching magazine there is a fun interview I did, where I was asked a series of questions and my thoughts on different topics all relating to birds and bird watching. Contact with nature in any form is good for your mental and physical health and also you’re sole. My best advice I can give to anyone wishing to witness this is just to get outside and let nature do its magic. The magazine is out now and available either online or in all good retailers.

Fieldcraft – Ethics

Filed in Articles, Photography Tips, Wildlife on Jan.09, 2019

Winter is a testing time for all living animals, always remember when working with wild animals they come first and the last thing you want to do is to impose yourself to quickly or scare the animal you’re wishing to photograph. It’s also very important to know that calories are burned off more quickly during the winter months so fieldcraft and respect have to be the first priorities of any wildlife photographer.

Dawn and Dusk are truly the best times for light that often yield the most pleasing conditions in which to photograph in. With the Winter season now upon us this will offer you a softer, more angled light which can offer the photographer endless opportunities for dramatic images of wildlife.

A female Grey Seal sleeping with her plastic necklace around her neck that she never asked for, it was so ingrained that her neck region had completely grown around and over it. Wildlife is paying a high price for our throw away lifestyle.

Professional Imagemaker

Filed in Articles on Oct.02, 2018

In October’s issue of Professional Imagermaker I have an article published on light, more so side and back lighting within wildlife photography. I’ve broken down this subject in a way that is very easy to understand. Those that know me no I don’t obsess with the technical side of photography. Instead I use my own flare and passion, then I ask the camera to “write” or capture what I see.  I work with very simple settings, and use them alongside my camera to express and communicate what I’m seeing and watching on the ground at that time.
