Photography

If you hadn't have guessed by all the pretty herpetological photos everywhere, I am quite the avid photographer! My current camera setup is a Pentax K-50 body with 18-55 mm or 55-300 mm lenses although I shall be buying a macro lens soon! The camera is completely weather sealed and has seen some rather wet times at my side, especially when visiting Sabah.

I'm lucky that a couple of times now, my photography has been featured on the cover of The Herpetological Bulletin alongside my articles on the same topic. It's always a great feeling when you're asked to supply a photo for the cover and an even better one when you're able to. So my golden rule is, make sure you photograph everything as you never know when it's going to come in handy.

You may recognise the amphibian on the cover of The Herpetological Bulletin Issue 140 as the common midwife toad (Alytes obstetricans) of which I have have been studying here in the UK. Those of you with keen eyes will recognise the Mwanza rock agama (Agama mwanzae) from Issue 145 as being the same photo as the banner at the top of this page!


My previous camera was a Sony α-200 which was a great introduction to DSLR cameras, I was sad to see the camera go but it was time for a change. It was a great entry-level camera and taught me quite a bit about DSLR photography which Below are some photos I've taken from both cameras which make up my Flickr and Instagram feeds that are linked below.
