While I enjoy various photographic genres, my passion is all about wildlife. There is nothing quite as exciting or so exhilarating as having a beautiful creature firmly in one's viewfinder.

Since I began shooting, I've always invested in top quality kit. my Canon EF 500mm f/4L prime lens remains a joy, but there is so much more to getting a quality nature image. Stealthy fieldcraft and good reconnaissance play a huge part, as getting close to one's subject is the single most important aspect of getting detail into an image.
