Peter Jones ARPS
I have a lifetime interest in Natural History.
As a schoolboy in Nottinghamshire I became interested in wildlife through my father who encouraged him to draw and paint the local birds.
On moving to Leicestershire I joined the Loughborough Naturalist Club and was able to learn more about wildlife and local issues through like- minded people. I soon became chairman and am still an active member.
I also do a lot of work for the Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust and am the past vice chairman.
Photography was my next step and in 1986 I gained my ARPS. In April 2007 I was award the distinction of DPAGB.
I am currently Chairman of The Royal Photographic Society Nature Group. the past President of the Leicester & Leicestershire PS and past Chairman of the LRWT Charnwood Group.
My varied natural lectures can be regularly seen on the midlands circuits; I also judge photographic competitions up and down the country, and appear on Local Radio and TV. I helped to produce a film on Finland for Central Television and a film with Chris Packham on bird watching.
Some of my work has been published in books and magazines and can be seen in exhibitions around the midlands. I also write articles for various papers and magazines.
In 1996 I set up Wildwatch Tours Ltd, a company specialising in wildlife and photographic holidays around the world. For more information please go to www.wildwatchtours.co.uk
