23/07/2013 - Due to a few issues relating to my current email address, involving my replies not being received by a number of contacts, I have added a new email address to my website (see 'send message' on homepage and 'contact' on other pages). This will now be my main address for all correspondence. Apologies to anyone who had failed to get a reply from me, due to this issue.
If you have contacted me by email, regarding an image request, and have had no reply, please check your junk email folder and/or email me again via my new address.
06/10/2014 - In the light of increasing reports regarding people with big lenses (and smaller setups) showing complete disrespect for wildlife, I would like to say that I vehemently distance myself from photographers who behave in such a betraying manner in order to get his or her 'trophy image'. I have seen and heard about some despicable actions undertaken by such ones, often at the cost of the environment and creature/s they pursue. I also believe that this hype and mania is fed in to, by organisations that claim to promote respect for wildlife and nature. They have become a contributing factor in spreading an army of 'wildlife photographers' in to the countryside, in order to get their 'competition' shots, showing little or no respect for our beautiful and often delicate environment. These give real lovers and seasoned watchers of nature a bad name, which is becoming increasingly embarrassing and is very unfair.
