I have been a professional wildlife photographer since 2003 and have been fortuate to have photographed many species from my back garden to across the globe. I currently run the Suffolk Wildlife Trust's varied array of photography workshops and my own workshop days. I've previously run photographic days for the RSPB and Natural England.
I'm represented by several picture agencies including the RSPB images agency. See my ongoing submissions here :
My images have sold around the world and are regularly featured in the RSPB magazine and have also been published in BBC Countryfile, BBC Wildlife and Outdoor Photography magazines plus The Times, Sunday Mail and Guardian newspapers and international calendars over the years. One of my images of an Elephant hawkmoth has been used on a stamp for the Irish government. I have also been commissioned by the BBC Wildlife and Countryfile magazines.
