Wildlife portrait photographer from the UK.
There are now five editions of my free magazine that offers photography tips and promotes Wikipedia & Commons. The Read online links take you to a flip book.
You can access downloadable pdf versions by visiting the Sharp Eye on wildlife photography page
My web site is www.sharpphotography.co.uk which takes you to images on Flickr. The latest edits of my images are always here on Commons.
Many of my pictures are taken outside of the UK and the best ones will be in my galleries of
favourites, Featured pictures (285 from 38 countries), Quality images (2,129) and Valued images (2,246).
The quality of Valued Images may not be great, but are provided as reference images - the best we have at the moment. Click the star for POTY and barnstars etc.
