Once a professional in the field of teaching photography and Adobe Photoshop Les is now retired due to health. He is also a full time carer for his two autistic twin daughters. 

His photography and playing guitar are two escapes from the restrictions of his disability. His motto to life is: "You only have one life in my book, make the most of your capabilities and keep smiling!”

He constantly explores all methods of photography and image processing passionately covering areas that include wildlife, macro and landscapes. Current projects include  capturing the wildlife and insect life around his village and nearby Cannock Chase Forest in Staffordshire.

His most successful photo to date is when he caught two Barn Owls in a pose kissing each other in a Raptor Photography Workshop he was hosting. Their heads formed a heart shape and the pure magic of the image caught both the media and the publics eye. It has won over 1,000 awards and competitions on sites such as Viewbug (a Canon 5D Mk3 being a 1st prize in one) and Gurushots. It’s appeared in most of the top British National Newspapers in print and on online news sites including The Times, Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, and The Express. Over in Europe it has featured in the worlds largest chain of newspapers The Metro. It’s also been purchased by the Woodland Trust, Disneyland Paris, China News, appeared in many magazines both in the UK and USA including a front-cover appearance on the popular UK magazine Country Life on 27th September 2017.  The image below was sent from the Editors phone the day before the release of the magazine direct from their desktop.
