Home  About Me  Galleries  Products  PhotoGuide

A fascination with the natural world had developed throughout my school years and was further encouraged and shaped at the University of Lancaster. To complete my formal education I pursued a sponsored study at the University of Reading, ahead of an industrial career. Thirty five years later I have taken time off to reflect on the collective experience of my professional life in engineering and science.  

Retirement from full - time employment has given scope for fresh endeavours,
above all, the opportunity to visit and revisit wild places and reawaken my childhood passion for the countryside and nature. Throughout the year I tread an unbeaten path to photograph the rich flora and fauna of the British Isles. My favourite locations are wildlife havens, where I can explore diverse habitats in search of potential subject matter to capture on camera.

The close encounters, the real challenges and the guaranteed year - round activity make photographing wildlife an all - consuming and rewarding occupation.

Migrating from film to digital capture and the accessibility of electronic media has given me the ability to review and edit images anywhere at any time and has spurred my enthusiasm for all aspects of digital photography.
Many of the gallery images (all digital) are the product of photoshoots in East Anglia and closer to home. For the future, I hope to visit the Scottish Highlands and Islands and favoured locations further afield to photograph familiar and rare species.

Creating the
IMAJTREK website has given me immense enjoyment, I hope that you can find the time to visit the galleries and perhaps read the articles.
