The Suffolk Community Barn Owl Project need your help.

Amateur Photographer Magazine, 'Soft Touch'

March 10, 2018

This particular image of a Mountain Hare was taken on the 'Dark Peak' near to 'Snake Pass' on the Derbyshire moors. Mountain Hares are particularly skittish and very well camouflaged in their winter coats which was why I was so very lucky to capture this moment as this little chap who sat obligingly on a snow covered ledge. This image was featured in 'Amateur Photographer', March 10th, 2018 edition of their magazine.

'Mad March Hares', The 'Times' Newspaper

March 08, 2018

I was so very privileged to observe the behaviour of this buck and doe in the Suffolk fields near Woodbridge. Whilst the weather was overcast I was transfixed as I watched their unusual courtship throughout the day. Hours of calm as they sat together in the field, punctuated by fleeting moments of fierce activity as they boxed each other…truly Mad March hares.


This particular image was featured in the 'Times' Newspaper, 8th March 2018 and is one of a series of limited edition Giclee prints available for purchase from the online store.

Amateur Photographer Magazine, 'Lost in the storm'

December 21, 2017

The North Norfolk coast is a fantastic location for photographing wildlife. With a large seal population dispersed along the coastline there are some great opportunities to catch some endearing moments; especially between November and February when nursing their young.  You always need to be careful not to disturb the seals as with all wildlife in their natural habitat. However I was fortunate enough to spot this solitary seal pup when a sandstorm had whipped up, recently featured in Amateur Photographer magazine - 16th December, 2017 edition.


This particular image is one of a series of limited edition Giclee prints available for purchase from the online store.
