Hello, however you arrived at this page… welcome.

I live and breath photography, which is a difficult trick if you’ve ever tried it, and love the way nature is revealed in all it’s glory when you simply take time to look ar0und.

Feel free to leave a comment, good or bad, it’s always nice to know people are reading my words – preferably enjoining them!  If you have any questions or pointers, drop me an email… I might even get round to some tutorials if I can put the camera down for 5 minutes!

Current gear includes Canon 1D4, Canon 5d, 17-40mm, 24-105mm, 80-400mm, 50mm, 150mm and 600mm lenses – and a plethora of other bits and pieces such as tripod/flash etc.



  1. Good God! Your photos as spectacular. This from a fellow amateur Canon-wielding photographer. Well done.

    • Thanks, have you seen my latest duck series?

  2. Hi, I just stumbled across your blog. As another wildlife photographer, I would like to tell you that you have some amazing images. I will keep looking and see what you keep adding.

    • Thanks Bob for your kind words, such comments through 2010 have been a great motivator and I have high hopes for 2011. Happy New Year and best wishes for 2011.

  3. Nice photos of birds. 🙂
    Keep it up.

  4. Hello Andrew.
    your Father introduced me to your photograhs, I am so pleased he did,
    I have been interested in all animals all my life, was treasure for Lincolnshire Badger group for some years,but have never had the right camera to capture what I wanted, so please carry on such good wark for folk like me. June.

    • Thanks June,

      the blog takes up a fair amount of energy each day, along with daily uploads to flickr but I do enjoy it – though obviously not as much as capturing that special photo.



  5. Hi Andew,
    I commented on your commerant photo on flickr and thought I’d come looking for more! Some really nice shots on here. Could I talk to you a bit more via email about some of these photos. As part of a project I’m on, some of these species are on my list. I’ll explain all that if you email.



    • Hi Bertie,

      Drop me a mail through Flickr and I’ll offer as much assistance as I can 🙂



  6. Hi, Andrew. I would like to buy my first “real” camera. I have been fooling around with cheap cameras and getting some wonderful pictures but I need better quality and zoom and…well, I really need someone to help me get started with a more serious approach. My birthday is coming up and I want to invest in a good camera.

    • Sure, I’ll be more than happy to offer any advice I’ll drop you an email with my contact details and a few questions later this week. Just returned from Kenya and have a photo shoot this weekend so still a bit hectic at the moment.

  7. Hi Andrew,
    New to blogging and relatively new to photography – so I started a photoblog to motivate me on both ends. Found yours today and really enjoyed your pics! Hope you’re having a great time in Africa – I’m going later this year so maybe I can pick up some pointers from your experiences.

    • Hi Scott, you won’t be disappointed with Africa – I had a fantastic time in Kenya – can’t wait to go back. Let me know how I can help on either the photo or blog side, and thanks for the kind words.

      • Thanks Andrew,
        I know you’re a busy guy but if you ever get a chance to drop by my blog, I’d appreciate any comments you might have – especially on the photography side.

      • Hi Scott,

        The only comment I was going to make about your site is now no longer applicable (and is only personal preference anyway). You had the calendar etc at the bottom of the page, I prefer it to one side so you can access it quicker, but looking today I can see it’s there already. Site looks great, and I like your writing style – so keep up the good work.



  8. I only dabble in photography, so obviously I’m totally impressed with your skills…especially since your photos are up close and personal…to African wildlife.

    admiring…from afar. 🙂

    • Thanks for the kind words. I was a little frustrated at times that I was too close for the large lens I use – I’d also liked to have gone on foot to stalk the creatures – perhaps next time.

  9. I love birds so much… thank you, Andrew. Thank you very much for your pictures of them.

  10. Hi, Came here from viewing your marvellous Big Cat work from Dartmoor Zoo on Flickr. Just wanted to say, ‘breathtaking’ and you have given me a standard to aspire to, despite the fact you are a Canon Man ! ;0) Beautiful work and dead jealous of your fine array of lens equipment! Looking forward to seeing lots more from you, Andrew.

  11. Great blog…great pictures! I will follow!

  12. This is my first time i visit here. This is a smart blog. I mean it.

  13. Hi Andrew, a happy new year to you.

    I have nominated you for a Blog of the Year award congratulations you deserve it.
