Rather than publish news of events, talks, magazine features etc here, I have added a new page for this. I’ll be updating this page as regularly as I can, and will keep the blog for showcasing new work. More of which to come soon!

Inspirational websites

I was recently approached by US pro bird photographer Art Morris asking if he could feature my website on his blog as being one of his top 5 most inspirational sites. Of course I agreed, I have always admired Art’s work and he has been an inspiration to me from the beginning. It is nice to return the favour! Here is a link:


Birds As Art 1st International Bird Photography Competition

He also asked if I could spread the word about a new international bird photography competition he is running. There are 11 categories to enter and there is a great prize pool so be sure to enter! For more details please go to

Winter swans

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Every year thousands of swans and geese migrate to Britain from the North to spend the winter here, and each year I seek out new images of these birds. Usually I wait until the temperature drops so I can place them against a frozen landscape. My previous efforts have resulted in lots of images of whooper swans, so this year I’m concentrating on their close cousin, the bewick’s. As winter progresses I’ll keep updating the blog with fresh images, but to start it off here are a few from a recent trip to Slimbridge.

I’ve been suffering from a virus this past week so have been confined to the office, but at least it’s given me chance to catch up on a mountain of processing and admin work!

I’ve also been able to make a start on the book that I am doing with fellow nature photographer Ross Hoddinott – all will be revealed soon.

On the images front I have some great projects planned for winter so hopefully will have something new to show you soon.

In the meantime I thought I’d make you aware that I now have a facebook page which I’ll keep updated with recent pics. Here’s a link:
