Projects this Year

Alaska and the Yukon

In mid April I will be travelling to the Canadian Yukon to photograph the spring migration of Trumpeter Swans. After a week there I will make the short journey into SE Alaska where I will concentrate on Harlequin Ducks Surf Scoters and the spring migration of shorebirds.


I will be running workshops on various aspects of Natural History Photography with the emphasis on the field aspect of the process. The use of field craft and a thorough knowledge of the subject are essential combined with an intimate understanding of camera and lenses. I will also look at the art of building and using hides in various situations as this is an essential tool in the nature photographers armoury. The courses will vary between 1 and 3 days, so do watch this space for announcements on future events.

This is the area I use to showcase my work. It will be updated regularly as I produce new images, so please take the time to look and see what's new.
