Photomicrography is the technique of photographing objects using a combination of a microscope and a camera. Through my work at the Hope Entomological Collections, Oxford University Museum of Natural History, I have a fair amount of experience in the digital photomicrography of small insect specimens, generally for identification or other taxonomic purposes. This has involved much work on specimen lighting, computer-driven focus-stacking and photomanipulation/editing. I have given occasional talks on this subject to organisations such as the British Entomological and Natural History Society, and the British Coleopterists’ Society.

Photomicrography projects

  • Photography for many papers on taxonomy or insect ecology.
  • Imaging for my guide to the Dung Beetles of Cusuco National Park, Honduras. View pdf of version 1.0. Note that this is now out of date, a new version is currently being written.

General photography

I am a keen general photographer, though I make no claim to any skill. I shall upload some of my pictures to this site in due course.
