My name is John Barlow. My passion is Wild Bird Photography.

I started bird watching when I was just 8 years old.  I used to wander around Cockerham Bay near Lancaster from dawn until dusk in search of wild birds.  Back then it was my wish to take photographs of my findings; only being held back by lack of funds.  I chose to draw pictures, collect books and take notes to keep my own personal records of my much loved hobby.

As you can imagine over the years I developed a large knowledge of British Birds.  As I got older; life, work and family took over; and my passion seemed for many years to take a back seat.

Now, in my 40's, my hectic life has eased and I see myself delving into my passion once more.  I started off in July 2009 with Digiscoping equipment, not being totally happy with the quality of image.  I then researched into more expensive equipment to achieve high quality photographs.  I purchased a Canon Eos 7D Camera with a Canon 300mm F2.8 lens in January 2010.

I am now extremely pleased with my results but I am still constantly learning new skills and techniques.  I decided to share my knowledge and photographs with others; which is where this web site and my presentations come in.  I hope you enjoy my photographs.
