Welcome to my world of fine art wildlife photography, where you can purchase prints, book photographic safaris or just enjoy photographs of wonderful wildlife. Check back often, as this site is updated regularly.
I’m a photographer of wildlife from New Zealand living in London. I arrived in late 1989 for a six month journey and I’m still here journeying over twenty years later. Some of my favourite places are Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Botswana, and Richmond Park which is just a few miles from my home in London.
I prefer a fine art style, choosing to appeal to buyers of framed photography. Although I’ve a preference towards black and white, colour features strongly too.
I have acquired each portfolio of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year series since its inception in 1991. They have been, and they continue to be, my biggest inspiration. Last year it was a privilege to see my picture A Flick of the Tail chosen for its cover. My pictures have been published worldwide and my prints adorn the walls of many peoples’ homes.
I’m using Nikon cameras, three D800E’s with:
70-200 f/2.8 VRII
400 f/2.8 VR
I also have Nikon F3/T with a motordrive and 50mm f/1.2 lens, all in pristine condition. It’s a film camera first made in 1980 and I think it may well be the best Nikon even made.
I process everything in Adobe Lightroom. I rarely use Photoshop as I prefer to keep away from cloning and retouching, to keep things as natural as possible.
Possibly the best tip I can suggest is to stay with your subject for as long as possible.
