About Me


Creative Photography for Fun

I am a British ex-pat, living in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife and two children. Photography is a hobby that I fit around work, and other family activities. The photos featured on this site are some of my favorites. You can find more of my photos in my Flickr account as well as in my social media posts.

The mix of photos found here will, over time, include bird and other wildlife photos, flowers and macro flowers as well as landscapes and street photography. Many will be from travels around the world, but some will be local to the San Francisco Bay Area, and especially to the island of Alameda that I have called home for over 20 years now.

Buying My Art

If you’re interested in buying any prints of my work, I have some of the images uploaded to my shop at Fine Art America / Pixels. If you see a photo here that is not in the store there, reach out and I can add it to the available set. You can reach me via feedback@ourlivez.com.

Legacy Camera Gear

There are some photos on here taken with my older cameras, mainly the Canon EOS 20D that was my first DSLR, and various iPhone models that I have owned over the years. There may also be some from a Canon S120 that I carried as my daily camera for a period of time when I was commuting for work.
