I am an ecologist and bird watcher who always takes his camera into the field. Most of my photos are therefore of birds, but they are also of the other animals that I see and places that I go. All of the animals in my photos are wild animals (except for the occassional people in the photos, who are quite tame!).

I use a Canon EOS 20D (or whatever the new model is) with a 100-400mm IS, USM lens, which means I can operate without a tripod. I open up the aperture as far as I can and see what happens!

My first sale

I sold my first photo today, and I am thrilled. The photo is one of my favourites and is of a majestic looking White-bellied Sea Eagle. Thanks so much to Shane Booth, it is such a compliment, especially when you look at his exquisite work.

This corresponds pretty closely with the length of time that I have been involved in RedBubble and I am so inspired by all the fantastic artists in this community that I can’t wait to get shooting again. / S…

First time featured!

I was thrilled to have one of my works featured in a group. Merton’s Water Dragon was one of the photos chosen to represent the big lizards in the Reptiles and Amphibians group. At a time when I am dealing with lots of (well-meaning) criticism, RedBubble is just the welcoming and friendly place that I need. Thanks to all of you who have made such kind comments about my work and especially to E…
