I have been a keen amateur photographer since boyhood with particular interests in landscape photography, mainly in the UK's Lake District, together with animals both at home in the UK, and in South Africa. The latter interest was served by a number of 'safaris' which included the Kruger National Park, and Game Reserves of Ingwe, Samburu, Sanbona, Masai Mara, Londolozi, Shamwari, Nguni, Addo Elephant Park, Lake Niavasha and Lake Nakuru. Most of my safari photographs were taken with CANON 40 D and a 5D Mk II camera bodies, and with CANON EF lenses 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM and a 400mm f/4.0 DO IS USM. In 2009 I entered several photographs into the 'Landscape Photographer of the Year' Competition, and one of my images was commended by the judges, was published in the Awards book, and exhibited at London's National Theatre.
