Michael is an amateur wildlife and landscape photographer based in northeast England. He photographs wildlife across the UK and Europe and specialises in seals. Photography has been his hobby for around eight years. His time away indulging in this - sitting in the landscapes and learning the behaviour of animals - provides great stress relief from his job in social care.
