About me

Gender MALE
Industry Communications or Media
Occupation Photographer and special effects technician
Location Bedfordshire, United Kingdom
Introduction 54 years old now. I have worked as a special effects technician and model maker in the movie industry for many years, but have taken the plunge into pursuing my wildlife, aviation and landscape photography full-time, a big leap in the dark. Combining my practical/engineering skills, particularly with radio control and animatronics knowledge with my photographic interest I hope gives me an edge that enables the production of images away from the usual wildlife photography we see!, I am divorced and have a very special daughter, Holly, from my first marriage.
Interests Many interests, obviously wildlife photography and birdwatching are at the top of the list, but I am into movies and music, reading all sorts of novels, but I favour science fiction and techno-thrillers
Favorite Movies Aliens, Empire of the sun, Saving private Ryan, Apocolypse now, Quest for fire
Favorite Music Porcupine Tree, Marillion, REM, Radiohead, Arcade fire
Favorite Books The wasp factory by Ian Banks, Dune by Frank Herbert, Vulcan 607 by Rowland White
