Throughout 2015 I have been photographing wildlife, often from Zoo's - but I don't like to see animals in cages or compounds, so I try to represent the animal itself.


Are you looking at me?

Taken at MonkeWorld in Dorset, UK.

Scar and Stripes

An Amur Tiger which got into a little scrape with another Tiger - it's fine, it'll heal - beautiful animal.

Stripe To Stripe

Out of the shadows

A White Rhino stepping out of the shadow toward the light.


A Hammerkop preening itself whilst using the waters reflection as a mirror - vanity isn't only a human trait.
