Photography continued to be part of my life, but took a back seat while work, a mortgage and “life in general” took over. But then, having reached ‘middle-age’, and with a little more disposable income, I invested in a DSLR and rediscovered the passion. Combined with my love of birds, I was now able to get the shots I once dreamed of. And belonging to a small and competitive group of like-minded photographers has pushed me to try new things and to enter national and international exhibitions – with some success.
My photography is improving all the time and the enjoyment I get is boundless; I don’t think I’ll be putting the camera down any time soon!
So far, I have had an image published in the BBC Wildlife Magazine and the Discover Wildlife special edition; and also had images published in Wild Planet Photo Magazine – including a cover image. More recently I was shortlisted in the Bird Photographer of the Year competition and the image shown here appeared in the accompanying annual.
