Colin was born in Prestwich in 1949 and like many of his contemporaries moved to the country where the air was less polluted. Being able to turn his hand to anything of a practical or artistic nature his work included Newspapers, Vinyl flooring production, sign writing, tiling and decorating. After raising a family and having run a successful tiling business Colin now spends more time on his photography hobby during his retirement. Like many wildlife photographers Colin has the patience to wait for perfect shot and a good sense of composition. Colin’s wildlife photographs can be purchased from the Healey Dell Tea Rooms which include wildlife seen in the area at various times of the year and the changing landscapes through the seasons.
