Welcome to my website.
I've been interested in photography, particularly wildlife and landscape photography, since 1995 when my then fiancee, Rachel, bought me a Canon EOS 1000FN and a 75-300mm lens. This is a decision she has probably grown to regret! My equipment has moved on since then and my passion for photography has grown ever since, allowing me to capture images of the natural world that I love.
My real passion is wildlife, particularly birds, but I love to visit new places and this naturally led me to expand into landscape photography. I have to juggle my photography with a pretty demanding job and young family, meaning I often have to negotiate my photography time! Luckily this often means I get opportunities at the very beginning or end of the day, when the light for photography is at it's best, as the family is either in bed or Rachel is sorted with a glass of wine in front of the TV.
All my images are available for use and purchase, in JPEG or TIFF Formats, at resolutions allowing excellent quality A3 and A4 prints. The vast majority are also available in original RAW format, if required.
As a strong advocate of conservation, I am happy to provide images to charities and trusts for no charge. Please note my images are the copyright of Andrew Mozley so please seek permission prior to using any of my work.
I am completely self taught and have a lot still to learn. If you would like any of my images, or just want to comment on, or ask questions about, any of my photos, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
For those interested, my current equipment line up includes:
* When using a teleconverter on a canon lens, autofocus will only usually be possible with a lens of maximum aperture of F4 or below. However, this can be overcome by taping 3 pins on the converter. This works well with my Canon 100-400mm lens but means the the image stabiliser won't work. With the pins taped the camera also fails to record the impact of the converter (on focal length, aperture etc) when recording EXIF data. A number of my images, particularly smaller birds, are taken at an effective focal length of 560mm (400mm x 1.4) - this will appear as 400mm in the EXIF data.
