Fishermen of the Mangrove Swamp
it was a cool day with a hazy sky. The tide was nearing its peek as a stillness descended over the landscape. We watched as a fisherman manoeuvred his boat into a small area of mangrove seedlings, all being mirrored in the glassy surface of the water.

I am a retired physicist who has photographed most of my life, inter¬weaving photography with my scientific career that has extended over 40 years.
My fascination with photography started in the 1960s with the publication of the iconic image of a baboon in full flight turning to confront the chasing leopard. Today, the image still acts as a carrot on a stick, taunting me to achieve its standard with the taking of the next photograph. Combine this with the excitement of travel and the world becomes an amazing place, providing opportunity across the photographic genres of landscapes, cityscapes, events, portraits and wildlife.
I am an accredited professional photographer at the Australian Institute of Professional Photographers, and have gained numerous awards at international photographic competitions.
