SH-main-picMy first love is nature photography but I enjoy the challenge of photographing a wide range of subjects and I am always looking for new ideas. Whilst I prefer nature subjects to accurately reflect what is seen there are other genres of photography where modern technology allows for greater creativity in achieving the desired outcome, such as composite or multiple images in one such area.

My nature photography has taken me to various parts of England, Wales and Scotland including the Shetland isles, Mull, the Farne Islands, Skomer. Further afield my favorite destination has been the Extremadura region of Spain where I had the privilege of photographing the rare Spanish Imperial Eagle.

I use professional Canon photographic equipment and have recently acquired a Canon Pixma PRO 1 printer in which I use only genuine Canon Inks. This allows me greater freedom in choosing the appropriate paper for the specific image. Sometimes it may be advantageous or necessary to use the services of a third party but where that is the case I only use professional colour laboratories.

My photography has led me into framing and I mount and frame my own work as well as providing a third party framing service. I use only quality white core mounts.
Recently I have had a number of table mats, coasters and fridge magnets produced in melamine featuring a number of my images and hope to expand that in the future.
