I am a self-taught photographer who has been interested in photography from a very young age. As a teenager I upgraded to a “real” camera from a Kodak Hawkeye Intamatic and began shooting slides, soon becoming the designated photographer on any trip that was taken. This led to a number of my photographs being published in various books and magazines. A long hiatus in photography occurred after university, the starting of a family and the beginning of a career in the aviation industry. Recently, an interest in birds and the magic of light in nature has revitalized my need to capture the images I have been seeing both in my travels as well as in daily sojourns into the “wilds” around my home.
