My first career - a long time ago now - was as an environmental campaigner. I then worked for many years as a researcher and consultant on agricultural and rural development in less developed countries of Asia and Africa. Since 2011 my main focus has been on wildlife and landscape photography. I am a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society, and I've received the credit award (CPAGB) from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.
My principal local patch for both birdwatching and wildlife photography is Beddington Farmlands, an important wetland site in south London. I'm on the Executive Committee of the RSPB's Central London Local Group; and I'm actively involved in my local photographic society, Bromley Camera Club. I occasionally do photographic presentations in the London area on wildlife-related subjects, including ones on 'The Wildlife of South Asia', 'The Wildlife of Ethiopia' and 'Birds of the Gambia'.
