Mike has had a general interest in photography for many years although without any original formal training. It wasn't until the 1990s that he started to concentrate on photographing Wildlife during Safaris to East Africa; those were the years of slide photos and cameras with only manual focusing on the lens barrels.
For the past 16 years he has concentrated on photographing birds, using digital equipment, and particularly likes to catch some of them in flight. He is grateful for the excellent guidance in these respects from a friend, John Daniels, who is an exceptionally good Professional Wildlife Photographer. He owns a beautiful cottage, Bird Cottage, located in a remote part of mid-Wales where many photos of the species shown initially in the Portfolio section were taken, and where John offers photography courses. All the photographs on the website of his cottage, including both wild birds and garden birds, have been taken by John himself. To see his cottage please follow the link below.
