As a photographer and mentor, my goal is that clients enjoy what I do, and that I can inspire them to do what I enjoy.

Fantastic day at Silverstone courtesy of Hilton Hotels & Resorts and McLaren F1. Different viewing / photo opportunities than previously documented race weekends, with various pics to follow - including from within operational McLaren pit garage.
In the meantime, first random shot out of the bag is Red Bull's Daniel Ricardo, flat out on high fuel load through the fast Turn 1, lighting up the side of his floor and the tarmac behind with sparks from grounding the forward titanium skid plate

Got all excited by this pair of wonderfully iridescent ducks which I had never seen before. Turns out that they are Cayuga Ducks and are actually a breed of domestic duck principally in the US. They still look impressive in the right light. ... See MoreSee Less

The Barcelona trip wasn't entirely about 200mph lumps of carbon fibre and people in fireproof race suits. There are a fair few local Monk Parakeets nesting in the crowns of palm trees. Most birds take nesting materials to the tree. This one appeared to be trying to take the tree to the nest!! ... See MoreSee Less

Almost done with sifting through the results of the Barcelona trip. Lewis Hamilton's 2.3 second pit stop by the Mercedes AMG Petronas team.
I am expecting the same degree of enthusiasm and military precision when I next take my car in for service at the local Mercedes dealership!!

Of all the colourful and exotic wildlife at Woody Park, I was most taken by a diminutive , fairly monotone Tree Creeper. These characterful little birds are not especially rare, but they are well camouflaged and I am not conscious of having seen one for many years, so I considered these shots a result! ...

Here's a fella you probably would not expect to see on open lakes in Devon - Woody Park. I should point out that he is people-friendly and, unlike the other water fowl which is photographer and camera shy, it was difficult to keep this guy far enough away from the 600mm lens. ... See MoreSee Less

After far too long I finally got a chance to get away for a few days amongst nature, at the wonderful Woody Park with the cameras. I confess I got distracted by playing with fishing rods! However, some of the other wildlife did offer themselves up to the lens, which I am now processing through. Despite the overwhelming numbers of belligerent Canada geese, a few other waterfowl were prepared to try and co-exist on the lakes including, to start with, this lovely pair of Red Breasted Geese ...

Turns out that Iceland has no shortage of water. Most of it in the sky (which is why these are the last pics), some of it frozen in glaciers and much of it falling over cliffs. This Country must really be something to behold when it is bathed in the morning or evening sun. ... See MoreSee Less
