As well as contributing photographs to various magazines, newspapers and websites I also provide written editorial articles on wildlife and photography. Articles and photo stories cover a diverse range of topics from photographic techniques, species, locations and conservation.
I am currently writing on a freelance basis for Bird Watching, Digital Photographer and Wild Planet Photo Magazine and in the past have provided content for Outdoor Photographer, Wildlife Photographic Magazine (Apple Newsstand) and a local conservation charity magazine.
