Story
Tagline
Pro Photographer living on a small conservation based farm in Mid Wales.
Introduction
Briefly:

Professional natural history photographer specialising in the flora, fauna and landscapes of western Britain.

More Detail:

Wildlife & Landscape photographer; you could also call me a conservationist, horse enthusiast, partner, parent, home educator and amateur astronomer.

 live in a beautiful wooded area of north-west Wales (UK). I prefer to work on my own 'patch'; this tends to mean mainly Wales and extending to the UK in general. I work by producing images of the whole ecosystem from large landscapes to tiny macros.

Academically I studied a wide variety of subjects at school before specialising to study Physics, Chemistry & Biology to advanced level. At University my top specialities were Nutrition, Physiology & Biochemistry. I subsequently worked in Industry gaining Managerial, Accounting & Computing experience before leaving to start my own business and follow my dreams.

My photography has been published across much of the world. Here in the UK you may have seen it in publications as diverse as The Sun & the Telegraph or Countrylife & BBC magazines. Whilst not motivated by competition, I occasionaly enter such and have received a variety of awards from organisations, competitions & exhibitions. 

When I'm not behind the camera I can be found working to improve the bio-diversity on & around our small farm in the foothills of southern Snowdonia or spending time with my horse.

To look at some of my recent images why not visit my galleries at Natures Universe

Summer Bun

Fresh sweet grass, warm summer afternoon sun and a safe bolt hole nearby - all makes for a happy rabbit (or two or three or...)

Summer Birthdays

For me, one of the big advantages of a June birthday is that there's usually a rose just coming in to bloom. This year it's the climber "Handel" whose first bud opened yesterday afternoon.

A big thank you for all the birthday wishes, hope you're all having a great day.

Bee-tastic

Bee it Bombus or bee it Apis,
Bee it down in the heather or bee it up in the currants,
Please bee friendly to our Bees,
Bee-cause upon them pollination depends,
Bee-cause without them we'll be hungry.

They've certainly been enjoying the spring flowers & sunshine today.

Maesglase and Heading West

I'd like to post two photos as a fond farewell to winter (hopefully). These were taken last month, between Dinas Mawddwy & Dolgellau - after the sun set on a snowy day.

Eclipse Analysis

Here's an info-graphic analysis of my eclipse observations from yesterday.

Our home weather station (weather.tamaris.org.uk) was busy logging data whilst I was taking pictures & enjoying the view. Of particular interest are the solar energy readings measured in Watts per square meter and the temperature in degrees Centigrade.

As expected the Solar Energy readings (graphed in blue) show a marked dip during the eclipse. Meanwhile the warming of the morning air (graphed in red) seems to plateau during the peak 20-30 minutes of the eclipse.

A few notes should be made about the observations:

- the sky was almost perfectly clear until 11am so the data is clear of cloud interference
- wind conditions were also almost perfectly still
- the sun did not clear our mountain horizon until just after 9am (as seen in the first inset photograph). I believe this would have a small effect, but it would be to reduce the magnitude of the initial drop in readings.

The 3 inset photographs show the progression of the eclipse as the moon apparently moves across the face of the sun, from right to left. The earliest photograph (left-hand one) has a spruce tree silhouette on its lower section due to the sun only just clearing our mountain horizon.

Echoes of Yesterday

Taken a little south of Tywyn; these block like structures are not rocks but the old peat floor of an ancient forest, long since lost to the sea.

Iarlles of Nant-y-Moch

Spotted a lovely settled group of Highland cattle on the hills above Nant-y-moch dam, earlier this week. Have a soft spot for cattle anyway but with soft sunlight & the dam in the background, this was too ideal to not photograph.
