About Me

A former management consultant and now a semi-retired scuba diving instructor by profession, I am a keen photographer, wildlife enthusiast/birder and traveller.  I focus mainly on wildlife and nature, but also do street and travel photography.  This website is primarily a showcase for my photography, but also contains travel-related and other assorted musings.
