Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. Although always having an interest in photography it was not until 2005 that I acquired a digital camera and started to take photographs. Being an IT person I found it easy to analyse and understand the results and therefore I quickly mastered the camera.
The difficult part is mastering the composition and I know from looking at other photographers work that this can take years to achieve. Fortunately, I am very lucky as I have an understanding wife and lots of time to go out taking pictures. There is nothing more rewarding than watching wildlife or seeing the sun come up over
the horizon and it can be even more rewarding if this can be captured into a photographic memory that myself, and hopefully others, will be able to enjoy. I really appreciate you looking at my work and hope that you might contact me with any feedback.

2019 June - Svalbard

A very disappointing trip with Natural World Safaris. 
I booked the trip as a result of a cancelled trip in April to Svalbard caused by a SAS Airline pilot strike. 
Once you get it in your head that you want to go somewhere then I really wanted to go and NWS offered an extremely discounted trip. I was a bit worried and not sure how photographically oriented it would be. 
I was right to be worried and it was very much a sleep during the night, breakfast at 8, dinner at 7:30 affair which was very inflexible. With guides who were not photographer and held a very firm conservation approach, treating the guests like irresponsible children heralding us into a tight group I found it frustratingly difficult to get decent images. Lack of bears resulted in a disappointing trip and a ridiculously low number of images to process.
Going again next year. Lets hope for better results.
