About Us HEADING_TITLE

Rob's passion for bird watching began with an exceptional career in bird photography in 1985. He has been a regular contributor to monthly magazines with work featured in Birding World, Bird Watch, Bird Watching, British Birds, Dutch Birding and various county reports and books since then. In 2007 several photos were published in the amazing Birds of Scotand volumes 1 and 2 and Birds of Essex.  Rob’s Common Dolphin image won Highly Commended in the Noritsu 2008 Photographic competition.

He has always found quality in Canon equipment and currently uses 2 Canon EOS-1D Mark IIN's with various lenses including 600mm IS, 100-400mm IS, 20-35mm wide angle, 28-70mm 2.8L plus also 2x and 1.4x converters, flash guns and extension tubes. We have found,however, the 600mm lens has limitations for flight photography – funnily enough it is a little heavy!!!

Jill has always been seriously interested in all forms of wildlife and worked for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust during the 1990's. On meeting Rob in 2005 she was encouraged to learn the art of photography which gives the opportunity for the company to photograph two things at the same time. The Canon EOS 400D is giving some very good results with the 100-400mm IS lens and finds the camera easy to use. It is also not too heavy so allows for quick access and therefore some good results on flight images. (i.e. by the time Rob gets the 600mm lens out of the boot the bird has flown off).  More recently Jill has begun using the 40D along with a sigma macro lens. BBC wildlife magazine published Jills images in 2007

The family are also involved, with Roanna preferring Landscapes, and Samantha choosing wildlife images. Both girls received merits for images in the Noritsu Photographic Competition. Several of their images will also appear on the website. They currently use a selection of the equipment including the 600mm lens, which Sam managed to hand hold for her melodious warbler photo. They now have their own 400D to share.
