The Norfolk Tog
Howdy, and welcome to my site. I’m a Norfolk-based photographer with 15 years of hobbyist and professional photography experience. When not photographing landscapes, seascapes, and people, I take pride in shooting artistic low-light flora artwork for printing and framing.
A good photo should be taken passionately with precision while adopting a slow, ethical and patient attitude; that’s why when you hire me as your tutor, you’ll not be rushed or bogged down with jargon and technical details.
A low and slow approach to photography is what I teach and have taught myself for decades. Too many of us are rushing nowadays to shoot that perfect image. Why? Patience is a virtue; all good things come to those waiting.
I’m a member of the Guild of Professional Photographers. Therefore, you can rest assured you will be taught fine photographic art at some of the finest picturesque locations worldwide.
I met Jon when undergoing rehabilitation for PTSD. He demonstrated how to photograph low-light butterfly and swan photos on the River Wensum, which looked amazing when printed and framed. Some of his photography illustrating swans adorns the clinic’s walls, creating a welcoming and calming atmosphere. Thanks for all you do, mate.

Thank you for sending me the prints of Norwich Market and your gorgeous butterfly photos. My customers love them, especially the moth and damselflies prints. I came across Jon’s work in the Eastern Daily Press and Evening News and immediately fell in love. Jon’s a great artist that has time for anyone.

Talking Ethics in Photography
Why is ethics in wildlife photography important? No one will want to be photographed if we’re seen taking pictures that harm our wildlife subjects. In addition, if we’re seen to be harming wildlife for the purpose of a picture, it brings the entire photography industry into disrepute. The welfare of the subject is more important than the photo. Join me for a four hour conference talking about ethics in photography.
WILDLIFE | ETHICS | FOUR HOUR TALK
Living Planet Index reported in 2022 that Earth’s wildlife populations have plunged by an average of 69% in just under 50 years. While the camera poses little risk regarding wildlife declines, unethical photography is on the increase, rarely policed and, as such, remains a threat to wild fauna.
FLORA | ETHICS | FOUR HOUR TALK
Over 80% of flora species have declined due to habitat destruction. Like wildlife photography, the humble camera poses little threat. However, unethical photography practices add to flora’s global threats, whether trampling or reckless landscape and macro photography it all adds up.
DRONES | ETHICS | FOUR HOUR TALK
Camera drones have become popular with photographers and videographers. However, they also pose a significant threat to wildlife, such as nesting birds, bears, seals, aquatic fauna, etc., in the way of noise, motion and appearance. Intrusive drone flying can cause animals to abandon their nests or flee their habitat.
