Images of Wirral
Talks & photography featuring the wildlife & history of the Wirral peninsula & beyond.
At last count 69, Married with three children and six grandchildren, who I believe are collectively responsible for the white hair. I have lived on Wirral all my life and have no desire to live anywhere else. Apart from photography I am interested in wildlife, family & local history, I also collect old photographs of the village where I live, Barnston.
Iíve been interested in photography for about as long as I can remember. I joined the police in 1961 retiring in 1986. I was lucky enough to spend the last 14 years of my police career as a photographer/fingerprint officer. From 1986 to 2006 I worked for a local tug operator on Merseyside and took all their publicity pictures, now that I'm fully retired I can please myself what I photograph.
The talks are aimed at local history & amenity societies, they reflect my interests and are a mixture of wildlife, landscape and history. I normally ask for a fee of £35 to cover costs provided the venue is on Wirral, follow the Talks links above or below for further details.
I vowed I would never enter the 'digital' world but was impressed by the results of a Nikon Coolpix 4300 which my children bought for my birthday a few years ago & I finally bit the bullet & bought a Konicaminolta 5D, digital SLR so much for vows. I currently use a Canon 60d with Sigma 150/500, 17/70 lens and a Sigma 1.4 tele converter in addition I have a Tamron 70/300 lens.
