Occupation Environmental Consultant
Location Wirral, United Kingdom
Introduction I use Canon Equipment for my photography. My current camera bodies are the 1DX, 1D MkIV and 7D mk2. These are primarily used with the 600mm F4 lens. On occasions the 600mm lens is combined with a 1.4X teleconvertor to get some more reach. I also use a 300m F2.8 and 70-200mm F2.8 for closer range work. I take most of my shots either hand held or using a beanbag for support. Occasionally I will use a tripod or monopod but mainly these are used when I am camped up in the hide. All photographs are shot in RAW format before being taken into Capture 8 Pro and Photoshop for processing. Most of my photography is undertaken locally on Merseyside, the Wirral and in North Wales but I always like to try and take a camera with me when I travel anywhere, just in case the opportunity arises. Please remember that the welfare of your subject should always be the starting point of any wildlife photograph. IF THE PHOTOS DO NOT ALL APPEAR AT FIRST, THEN PLEASE CLICK REFRESH ON YOUR BROWSER.
