Ashley developed an interest in nature - and birds in particular - while growing up in the Warwickshire countryside, before setting up as a wildlife photographer in 2005.
He now lectures widely and leads regular photographic and birding tours to The Gambia - his favourite destination – as well as the Shetland Islands, Isle of Scilly, Trinidad & Tobago, the Spanish Pyrenees and elsewhere.
He is particularly keen on birds of prey and hummingbirds, and regularly delivers workshops and seminars throughout the UK. Officially recommended by the RSPB and Royal Horticultural Society, he give talks to groups from Scotland to Kent and from Wales across to Suffolk. Ashley’s friendly manner and enthusiasm will no doubt be infectious and help you to learn new skills on your birding photography journey.
