A creative outlet
"I’ve been taking photos of nature for about 20 years. I can’t draw, paint or play music so taking pictures is a creative outlet for me. I focus on wildlife because I love being out in nature. There’s nothing like that feeling of breathing out and being totally relaxed. I only get that when I’m out in the countryside watching animals go about their business.
I wouldn’t say I have a favourite species to photograph, but if I did, the puffin would be up there. There’s just something about them. Everyone loves puffins! They’re super cute, fluffy, interesting, with big bright breaks. What’s not to like? I’m always up for an opportunity to photograph them so when we were visiting Pembrokeshire on a family holiday a couple of years back, I knew the perfect place to visit. Even if it did mean getting up at ridiculous o’clock!
