I have been on the judging panel for the Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s annual photographic competition in 2010, 2014, 2015, 2017 & 2018

Recently I have found myself working closer to home and find that by doing so I’m able to learn the lives of the local wildlife better and so giving myself more opportunities to get images of my three favorite local UK species, these being the Roe deer, Barn owl and Brown hare.

This being said there’s still plenty of subjects I would like to photograph across this wonderful planet but I am very pleased that back in 2008 I was able fulfill one of my lifetimes ambitions of seeing and photographing wild Tigers in India.
