Mike Warburton Photography

about me

I live in the heart of the Welsh Valleys on the border of the Brecon Beacons with my wife,two children and mental Cocker Spaniel.

I have been interested in Wildlife and the natural world for as long as I can remember.It stems from when I used to go Ferreting for Rabbits as a child with my father which then progressed to shooting.Thankfully I decided to swap the Gun for a Camera instead in the 1990`s.Hunting,in various forms,does give you a respect for wildlife and knowledge of various species` habits which is an advantage when it comes to Wildlife Photography though.

Starting Photography with film in the 90`s was a lot harder than it is now with the dawn of the digital age.Although I was very pleased with some of my work back then it was a very steep learning curve.This was mainly down to the fact that by the time I had a roll of film processed I had forgotten all the settings I had used.

I am also the South East Wales nest site monitor for the South Wales Peregrine Monitoring Group and am licenced for six species of Raptor along with Black Redstart and Little Ringed Plover.
