I also take photographs for use in my books, such as the 600+ images for The Forest Guide series. A selection of tree photographs are available to view on my dedicated tree photography webpages at:

TREE PHOTOGRAPHY – TECHNICAL ASPECTS:
I work with medium format equipment to create very high quality images to suit a wide range of commercial applications, printing and for exhibitions.
For book fieldwork I tend to shoot with micro four thirds (MFT) equipment using Panasonic Lumix photography equipment as I find this highly portable, especially when working in remote locations. The small and lightweight format means it’s possible to carry a camera body and several lenses on a long trek, along with other hiking gear.
I always capture in RAW format and post-process my images using Adobe Lightroom.
As a professional forester and chartered environmentalist, I offer substantial knowledge and understanding in the way that I capture and describe my images. I always record the species of tree in my photographs and make detailed notes about habitat, landscape, and associated biodiversity.
