I’m a retired Chartered Engineer having spent over forty years in the industry specialising in hardware electronics, systems design and management. Throughout my career, I travelled overseas on company business, which stimulated my interest in travel photography. During my overseas visits, I took travel photographs, albeit limited by time and opportunity. While I was working, my main vacation destinations were France, Singapore and the Far East. Since retiring, I have travelled further afield visiting Singapore quite frequently, Trinidad, Seychelles, Mauritius, Australia and New Zealand.

In the eighties, I became a member of a camera club (photographic society) where I could share and exhibit my photographs. During these years, my interests expanded to include wildlife, bird and nature photography. I have not been a club for many years, and my career often prevented me from pursuing my hobby with real vigour. However, it did not stop me taking photographs, so I have an extensive back catalogue of images still to process.
