I am a Nature photographer and take most of my images in the wild but I do enjoy taking other types of images too, especially travel related. When Judging I look at an image objectively whether or not it has a personal appeal and try to comment constructively on ways that an image may be strengthened.

My main interest is on the Natural world and Travel. Alongside ‘Standard’ images I like to experiment with creative views of Nature and Mono where Colour may be expected! Having said that I am interested in all genres. I see judging as a constructive review, bringing out an images strong points and where appropriate, making suggestions for change that the author may want to consider. Technical quality is important, but equally (or sometimes more so) is the content, feel and ‘message’ of an image
