I’ve been a photographer for most of my adult life and been fortunate enough to have a freelance career photographing happy couples on their wedding days, family portraits and commercial photography for businesses. So I have lots of transferable skills from my job.

In more recent times I have started a personal project photographing my favourite things on earth, animals. Like so many of us I have been inspired by the jaw-droppingly beautiful BBC nature documentaries.

I always loved to travel to see what the world has on offer. To me, wildlife photography is the perfect combination of travel, photography and nature. I have put in many hours often lying in seaweed, on a cold sandy beach or up in the middle of the night with the city foxes.

Much of the time I have little photographic success but to me that’s part of the fun. It’s well worth it when you nail the shot and you get an image that you’re pleased with.

With each image I take I always strive for dramatic light and¬†anthropomorphic qualities. If I have both of these I know I’m onto a winner.

I appreciate what I have on my doorstep and try to get out as much as possible locally to where I live. In fact the project that has clocked up the most hours has been photographing urban foxes.

If I can brighten up someone’s day with imagery of stunning beautiful animals then I can go to sleep happy

I hope that my photography can not only be an amazing experience for me but also help to protect the natural world. It’s given us so much so we should definitely give back.
