About myself

Speaker and lecturer offering enjoyable talks, lectures and presentations in the Midlands and beyond

I am a retired professional photographer, who specialised in travel, nature and African wildlife.
My Italian wife and I have lived and worked in Africa for over 30 years and have made extensive visits to five continents.
My books, Faces of Kenya and Shepherds of the Desert, published by Hamish Hamilton, London, went into several editions.
The Photographers’ Gallery and the Africa Centre in London, the New Stanley Gallery in Nairobi and L’ Espace Archard in Sainte Foy lès Lyon, France have all hosted exhibitions of my photographs. In 2014 my photographs of the Kenyatta Conference Centre in Nairobi were displayed in the Venice Biennale.
For over 40 years I have been selling my images for publication. My photographs have been used worldwide in hundreds of books, magazines, calendars and newspapers. The Telegraph, Guardian, Times, Observer, Daily Mail, Reader’s Digest Books, Rough Guides, Insight Guides, BBC Books and National Geographic are amongst the many publishers who have used my work.
Recently my images have won awards in numerous International Exhibitions and I am a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society - a distinction awarded twice for my African wildlife photography.
As a lecturer I have given presentations in the National Museum in Nairobi Kenya,
in South Africa, in France, in London and all over the USA including the Dallas Museum of Natural History, the Rockefeller University in New York and the California Academy of Sciences.
