Born in Oxford, England, my wife Sharon and I moved to Altea, Spain in 1985 and spent 18 years there before finally coming to Canada in 2003.
We currently reside in Qualicum Beach Vancouver Island BC
Having always been interested in Photography I now have the time to dedicate to this hobby.
My faithful photographers assistant namely my wife does all the research,descriptions, tags and responds to any Flickr mail as she can type faster than I can. I endeavour to personally reply to all comments that are left on my photostream, apologies to any that I miss

I would like to thank all those who take the time to comment and invite, feedback is always appreciated. We are amazed at the wealth of talent that there is on Flickr, the friendliness of others it only makes us strive harder.

    "I think........ if I had to write a one word that discribes Roys photography i would call it "Pristine".
    He has a fabulous talent....... with a style that is so clear that it is almost technical ...like a surgeons illustrator.
    There is an exactness to his work ...a sharpness ........ and an intensity that is so impressive that you just stare and realize you are looking at greatness.
    He knows light ........he understands the capture ..he understands his camera ...............he is a true professional and I count myself lucky as he is a respected supporter of my work........and this validates me at times as his comments mean something to me ...........as he "knows" and his respect............ and gauge has merrit.
    He always has the time to say something special....... and he makes you feel that your work is warranted and that it is appreciated. He is one of those photographers to watch and follow as his stuff is quite incredible .........whether its Bees or differant species of birds ...........or even the incredible interactions of smaller faster birds is so so impressive.........Roy your work is over the top and its an honour to know you.....and its so nice to deal with you here on flickr Island....Howard"
