I have been taking photographs since July 2002 when I bought a Nikon Coolpix 4500 camera. I initially bought my camera for digiscoping but my interest in photography quickly grew and I then bought a Canon digital SLR. I've been using Canon Digital SLR's ever since.
This site started off as a place to store my photographs of British Birds but I have since updated it to display a variety of my photographs. I no longer do any digiscoping, but have updated my digiscoping animation page so that it can be viewed without the discontinued Flash plugin.
The photographs are processed with ON1 Photo RAW and I also use Affinity Photo after I gave up using Adobe products. I alter exposure and levels and adjust colour balance where required and then sharpen and crop images. I do not manipulate images by adding or removing objects or merging photos, as I like the photos to be as close as possible to what was taken on the day.
I've re-created this website from scratch after neglecting it for a few years. I'm taking this opportunity to completely replace the photos that were here before and am in the process of uploading new photos.
