Close-up of a female Blackbird perched in the branches of a Japanese Maple(Acer) just outside my kitchen door in Birchington. Canon EOS 20D Canon 70-200mm f4L.

I started my working life in a press agency called Central Press Photos. After learning my trade in Fleet Street, I moved into more commercial and architectual work. I have also spent many a saturday chasing from one wedding to another. These days I photograph anything that takes my eye.
