As a trained microbiologist, I have had the opportunity to live and work in three different countries (including my native UK), which has probably coloured my outlook on life, as well as given me the opportunity to experience different cultures and see new sights. In addition to that, I have visited a number of cities and towns to attend congresses. I also help to run a computer help site, where I have been exposed to some very good digital art (directly and indirectly). I was initially interested in photography as a teenager, coupling it with other hobbies. I sort of left it behind though when I started to focus more on my career. After several years in the creative doldrums (apart from on holiday), I decided it was about time that I started nurturing my creative side again and bought a Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi) back in October 2007 before upgrading to a 40D, then the new 7D. I now use a combination of the 7D for wildlife and the 5D MkII for landscapes (and some wildlife). One of my goals is to get back to Norway and Greece to capture some of the scenes I should have captured while living there.
In February 2011, I published my first book through Blurb, titled “A Journey with Nature”. It relates my experience with nature, as I observe and enjoy it. I have since corrected a few typos and formatting errors and re-published it as a second edition. It is now available in two formats, from Blurb, as a text only pocket book and a larger format with photographs to illustrate the stories. It is also available in a Kindle electronic version from Amazon.
