I am really delighted in all respects at this the first element of the project.

Photographer & Photojournalist

I have always been interested in photography and began earning my living as a photographer in 1994 after a business life in a completely different sphere. With interests in nature and wildlife, conservation, cycle travel, rural affairs, music and portraiture, I rapidly developed my own portfolio and client list as a freelance photographer and photojournalist. Over the years I have worked and continue to work for most of the mainstream media (which has included Sky, BBC Countryfile, Future Publishing, IPC Media -TI Inc, Archant), global publishing houses, numerous conservation trusts and charities, PR companies and private individuals. The themes and styles may have changed and as our countryside, the wildlife and wildlife habitats come under more and more pressure from human disturbance, natural history with conservation has become one of my main areas of photographic project work.
