My Bio
If it moves, shoot it! With a camera of course. Having moved into photography some years ago, I found myself most active in wildlife. This includes semi-urban/garden areas, as well as more exotic captive animals as found in zoos and wildlife parks. Currently of particular interest are big cats and reptiles.

I believe the first born is a girl (red one above), but still working out the rest. Also I have started keeping fish. Not doing things by halves, I'm on 5 tanks already. Most are tropical, with some temperate minnows too. This is (probably) an Arulius barb. Anyway... now the weather has stopped

Location feature: Cat Survival Trust

The Cat Survival Trust in the UK recently published their spring newsletter If you're after some big cats to photograph then it is worth considering a visit. Unlike zoos and wildlife parks, this isn't freely open to the public and needs arrangement in advance. It does mean you get better access to the cats, after a health and safety warning of course! Details of people arranging photo days are in the newsletter. Personally I prefer Mark Tiller as he is local to the site he has more flexibility in running smaller groups, which means mor
