Welcome to my website!
It went live on January 23rd 2012 and since then I have been frantically uploading images and keywords to allow searching within the site. It is all happening, but inevitably not as fast as I would like. If this is your first visit please return soon, as images are being added frequently.
Still to come are sizeable collections of images of - in no particular order - Ecuador, Madagascar, British landscape, British natural history, Peru, Rome, Spain and Svalbard, plus significant expansions of existing galleries. In fact the only galleries that are definitely complete (until the next visit there) are Easter Island, Chile and Iceland, which came up with the goods on my recent Northern Lights trip on the very last night... In the next few months are trips to the Scottish Highlands, South Africa, Namibia and Botswana. So watch this space!
For the technically-minded, I use Canon DSLRs: currently EOS 1D Mark IVs for action and the latest in the EOS 5D series, the Mark III, for just about everything else, with lenses ranging from 14mm to 500mm in focal length. The 5D Mark III is wonderful, with fantastic focusing accuracy, and has largely made the 1D Mark IVs redundant.
I try to do little post-camera manipulation of images, apart from changes in levels etc., though the 5D Mark III will do HDR imaging in-camera, and gives some very interesting results, especially with moving subjects. All images displayed are ready for use and are offered on a rights-managed basis (that is, you pay for a specific use of an image). An image can be purchased easily and at very reasonable cost: an image for personal use, such as wallpaper on a computer screen, costs as little as 10GBP. It can then be downloaded after secure payment by credit or debit card or from an existing PayPal account. RAW files are available for the majority of images on request. If you have any queries or comments, or would like a quote for royalty-free usage, please get in touch via the Contact page. I'll reply as soon as I can, though the net is drawn fairly feintly in some parts of the world!
I hope you enjoy browsing the site, and if you would like to be kept informed about new collections, new projects, planned expeditions etc please register on the site and I will include you in my next emailing.
