My Pictures


Amur Leopard

Less than 10 years ago there were only 30-40 animals left in the wild. They now believe there are 80-100 and what a success story and one that should be celebrated.
Note one of my images has been selected to go into the Remembering Wildlife Leopard book due out Oct 2023. One of the most amazing experiences of my life.



Fabulous trip to one of the most amazing places I have ever been too and just loved the wildlife


Little Owls

Most definitely one of the cutest birds in the UK


Tawny Owls

Another one of the UK's wonderful birds



An amazing experience staying at Entim camp and spending the week with he fab Margot and Henry, and my travel companion - Julia.


Nepal Rhino

Had some amazing views of Rhino in Nepal



A selection of photos from a truly amazing country. This trip reminded me what real adventures are like and had some amazing wildlife signings but not all, so a great excuse to go back. Got a little carried away re pics but I hope you enjoy.



A trip that had been booked almost 4 years earlier but due to covid was constantly moved. Finally got there and wow it did not disappoint.


Antarctica - Penguins

Amazing trip to Antarctica, St Georgia and Falkland Islands. Managed to see 7 species of penguins.



A selection of additional wildlife from Antarctica excluding Penguins

This is one bird I never tire of photographing and luckily have a couple of locations where the set up and people running are just fab.

India Leopards

My third trip to India and best leopard experience to date.


Battling Jays

Had a great couple of days at Alans hide in Kirkcudbright and managed to get a few action shots off Jays. I wasn't aiming for Jay pics, but happy to get a few


A mixture of otters, some from a great trip to mull and the nighttime ones from a fab hide in Lincoln run by Tom.



Some gorgeous eagles from the north - White Tails from Mull and the magnificent Golden from Sweden with the great guide Conny

Chimps Uganda and Rwanda

This was a spur of the moment trip and wow what a trip, managed to see Chimps in both Rwanda and Uganda and have to say I was more moved than I ever expected.


Gorillas - Rwanda and Uganda

Similar to the Chimp experience, but I think this one was even better as so cool to walk among these magnificent animals - even if I did get kicked by one young male. I was lucky enough to the the Habinyanja group in Uganda and Agashya group in Rwanda.

British Wildlife

A great visit to the British Wildlife Centre down in Kent. Great to get to see British wildlife so close up


Ohio Zoo

I know most frown upon zoos, but this one in Ohio had a great ethos in that it did a cheetah breeding programme to help recovery, but then used the cheetahs to try and educate people more about what is happing in Africa and how things need to change.

Venezuela Harpy Eagles

We finally got to see this amazing bird on our second attempt and it definitely didn't disappoint. Pictures not great as light was horrible, but how can you not show of this monster of eagles.



Photoshoots can be overwhelming, which is why it’s beneficial to have an experienced professional managing the details. Through this service, you can count on me to guide you in every step of the way.
