I have been fascinated by wildlife since the age of about 7 when I discovered the Observer's book of birds and during my late teens tried to couple that with photography - film photography with a cheap camera of the day. After that it was a Pracktika with a 200mm lens and later a Pentax but, I guess like many of us, it was the arrival of digital photography which opened up real possibilities for development in this challenging field.

At the start of 2011 I retired from being a working biologist to follow all the things that stimulated me to become a biologist in the first place. I now take pictures of wildlife as often as I can.

I live close by Epping Forest (hence the user title above) which means I not only have plenty of places to visit but can also attract many species to my garden by suitable inducement. I regularly give talks to photography clubs and others upon these subjects and have written a short book upon Finding Wildlife in Epping Forest which can be ordered through Amazon.

Recently I enjoyed the excitement of submitting a few pics to the British Wildlife Photography Awards and having 2 of my images included in the recently published book - BWPA collection 2.

So if you see someone grubbing about in Epping Forest, don't necessarily think the worst of him. It may just be me looking for fungi.
