I love photography and travelling, but best of all I love watching wildlife. So when I can combine all three I’m very happy. My photography is selftaught, but along the way I have been lucky to meet and travel with amateur and professional photographers who are much more skilled and experienced than I am. They have been very willing to give advice and share their expertise, for which I am very grateful.

I am an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) (www.rps.org/) and belong to the Nature Photographers’ Portfolio (www.nature-photographers-portfolio.co.uk/). I enjoy sharing my images with friends and family as slide shows and videos, and also entering competitions. I have had images published in the BBC Wildlife Magazine, Outdoor Photography, Scottish Nature Photography Awards Portfolio Yearbook and RPS Portfolio One. I have also had acceptances in a number of international exhibitions.
