of nature and wildlife. and occasionally people
A patient in Hospiscare, the local hospice in Exeter
"I love taking photographs of wildlife and nature, from zooming right in to show exciting minute details to zooming right out to show not just the animal, but the habitat too.
I studied Fine Art (sculpture, painting and printmaking) and then qualified and worked as a Montessori nursery teacher for 12 years. Since 2000 I have worked both as an online designer and eCommerce manger. I said my goodbyes to the London rat-race and now work freelance from my milking shed home in South Devon. I help run the local photography club and enjoy the company of other photographers.
I am also a volunteer photographer for Hospiscare in Exeter. I take photographs of patients, doctors and nurses on the wards, the staff and volunteers both on and off-site and I am also commissioned for events.
"I am fascinated by the way birds can live on water, yet keep themselves warm and dry. This detail of a falcate duck's feathers show the intricacy of its feathers, impervious to water. This miraculous waterproofing enables every droplet to roll like a bright bead of mercury before falling back into the pond. Taken at the Slimbridge Wetland Centre in Gloucestershire.'

"Given the chance, I love to photograph lions at night. They sleep a lot of the day, but really come alive at dusk - alert, ready to hunt in the dark night. It would be easy for me to miss these hungry, waking lions in the long grass. The saying goes that a lion sees you a hundred times before you see it! They are extra perceptive to any movement at night. Their eyes are hungry, ready for a chase and it is thrilling to be in their company in this exaggerated state."
