I come originally from Newcastle in the north of England but moved to Denmark in 1970 and have lived and worked there since. Originally a graphic designer /illustrator, I later went on to teaching and for 12 years or so I ran a professional labrador/ springer spaniel kennel.

My interest for photography goes back at least 40 years!Having worked closely with professional photographers within advertising and design,photography quickly became a natural development,a great interest, infact a lifelong passion for me.

I live out in the forest and experience wildlife of all kinds almost every day. I have a great practical interest in animal conservation, and feed and follow the local wildlife’s development intensly.
I am especially interested in natural light and very rarely use artificial lighting in my work, my favourite camera is a Nikon D4 and a Nikon D700 for backup they are used with a series of nikon lenses.

I am driven in two directions in my photographic work, on the one side creativity and less figurative work on the other side,nature with pure photographic likeness. However, these opposite’s are sometimes combined with good results !
My favourite animals are horses and dogs and I have been very involved with breeding/training and showing them through the years.All of my RB work is entirely my own, I never use stock work.

My redbubble album contains a widespread area of topics, this is because I always have my camera with me whereever I go! My Red Bubble album reflects who I am , where I live and what I do .

The Christmas rush

Regarding activities on RB, the only thing I manage is uploading a shot or two when I ha…

I must apologise to everyone that has been kind enough to send me comments ! I just havn’t had the available time to say thank you’s to you all . Demands for my photographic work have exceeded all usual expectations, so my RB activity has had to be reduced for the time being.I have always made a point of not only thanking all who write to me, but also check out their own RB works, so…
