A trip to Lake Kerkini in Greece opened a whole lot of photography opportunities with the Dalmatian Pelicans. On this particular day, I wanted to try using my wide angle lens to get a different perspective. I was laid on a board that went out into the waters edge. With a dead fish (locally sourced from a fisherman on the lake) placed at the end, these pelicans became inquisitive. The closest one took the fish and I managed to get some very interesting images. The rest of the series shows wildlife taken during the winter which creates challenging photography.

I am a photographer that specialises in Wildlife. My passion for wildlife has taken me around the world and there is nothing I love doing more and I try hard to show that passion through my images. I spend hours in the field and what some people don’t understand is that some feelings you get are priceless…it is a true blessing to be able to take the time to sit and watch wildlife let alone photograph it. Sometimes it’s more important to experience the moment rather than miss it taking photos. “Photographing Wildlife is an adventure but most of all a privilege”
