Hello and welcome


  I have always had a keen interest in wildlife and the great outdoors;

  I was an Angler for over 30 years but gave it up a few years ago to       

  concentrate on photographing wildlife. I  lived in Runcorn; Cheshire a

  short distance from the M56 that gave me great access to the Wirral,

  Northwales and Lancashire, with some great countryside on my doorstep

  I didn't have to travel too far in search of wildlife and photographic


  Some of my wildlife photographs range from as far afield as Cuba,

  Antigua, Saint Martin, Saint Lucia, Dominican Republic,  Tuscany ,

  Corfu, Turkey, Spain, Portugal.




I now live in the Charente area of western France.
