Dickie Duckett FRPS
I have been interested in natural history, particularly birds, since I was a boy, but I did not own a camera until a 5-month posting to the Falkland Islands in 1985 inspired me to buy a Pentax film camera to photograph the wildlife and record my time there. Later I switched to Canon and made the change to digital in 2003. I still use Canon equipment, but a move to Olympus is likely.
Most of my photography is done in the UK but, since retirement in 2001, I have been able to visit a number of countries around the world. I take images mainly for my own personal satisfaction and enjoyment, but I also enjoy sharing images with NPP members and other like-minded photographers.
I became a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society in 2008 and was a member of the Natural History Distinctions Panel from 2012-2017. I am also a member of the RPS Nature Group, and the Zoological Photographic Club. I currently run the NPP Online Folio with help from Mike Lane.
