Hi my name is Val – and I love photography – in particular wildlife and nature. I will take pictures of captive and where possible wild animals and birds. I have been known to dabble in the odd landscape – some would say very odd! I don’t think it really matters what you take photo’s of – the main thing is to have fun!

I first got an interest in photography whilst still at school – and opted for a CSE photography course rather than Home economics! In those days it was Black & white film and a dark room. On leaving school I lost the urge to pick up the camera until I purchased a Canon S2IS about 6 years ago.

I quickly followed that up with a Canon 20d and a variety of lens and currently use a Canon 40d and a Canon 7d.

I found Red Bubble in June 2010 – and loved it straight away – there are some stunning artists on here and some very lovely people,

My most popular image so far is:

Landing Approach With 1513 views and 157 Favourites
