Photo Galaxy Web Awards

My name is Dave Miles, a freelance photographer located in the North East of England. I am building up this website as the main portfolio for showing my work.
I enjoy many forms of photography including wildlife and landscapes and i also like photographing people, also i have an avid new interest in underwater photography after A diving trip in the Carribean.
I provide several services including wedding photography, repairing old damaged and faded photographs and creative image manipulation.

"I have travelled to many spectacular places including America, Africa,India, Cuba,Canada,Jamaica, Mexico and Alaska in my search to capture photographs that hopefully people will enjoy".

Alaska left a big impression on me when i visited the state in 2006 and one very special place is Brooks River and Falls in Katmai National Park. Here i was privileged to spend 3 days in the company of over 30 grizzly bears gorging on the autumn salmon run on Brooks River. See the Katmailand link on my home page. I hope to return again some day.
Recently i travelled to California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah which included photography expeditions to Yosemite National Park, Death Valley, Bryce, Zion and Joshua Tree National parks along with Antelope and Grand Canyon.

I recently spent 2 weeks along the Yukatan Peninsula of mexico and had the pleasure of snorkeling with nesting and grazing sea turtles in the carribean sea at Akumal Beach............an amazing experience !! Back again in May 2016

I am usually to be found spending most of my spare time suitably camouflaged out in the field photographing wildlife.
Currently i am experimenting with Long Exposure photography and HDR techniques and will continue with my kingfisher photography during 2014. Also hoping to travel to Borneo Jungle Hopping or back to Mexico in the spring of 2015
