My latest book 'My Wood
' was published in September 2017. It is about the wildlife and plants in a small woodland I purchased in 1998. By careful management and the erection of a high fence to protect it from the massive destruction caused by fallow deer, nature has returned to a level the wood has not seen for many years.
In 2015 I returned from Lunen, where the three-day wildlife photography festival of the international and highly acclaimed Gesellschaft Deutscher Tierfotografen
, or GDT as it is better known, was held.
Apart from seeing the truly spectacular work of some of the world's finest nature photographers and having the pleasure of meeting them, I was fortunate enough to be honoured with the Fritz Steiniger Prize
for my "Contribution to Wildlife and Nature Photography".
Recently rather than devoting my time to high-speed photography, I have been escaping 'civilisation' into the mini-paradise of my enchanting eight acre Sussex wood. Here I am trying to restore the diversity of plant and animal life after the ravages of deer. My camera also plays its part!
