Welcome to the online home of RAKPhotographic, this website was created to enable you to share in my passion, it only showcases a very small selection of my work. I try to capture the beauty of the natural world with creative and emotional attachment to nature, at the very heart of each photo, creating a unique and artistic reflection of time in the field. My photography includes, Kingfishers, sea birds, raptors, woodland birds and mammals from all across the UK, Other destinations include Borneo to photograph Orangutans.

In photographing wildlife my aim is to involve you in the moment. Fleeting moments can take on great significance.

A small selection of recent images are shown at the bottom of the page, I have very active pages on both Facebook and Twitter, these show the majority of my work, if you would like to keep up to date with my photography, please click the buttons below to "like" my Facebook page and "follow me" on Twitter.

Further examples of my work can be seen on National Geographic and also on 500PIX.

If you require any details of any image on this site, or any other subject relating to wildlife photography, please contact me.

Commissioned work can be undertaken upon request.

I hope you find inspiration in what you discover.


Ray of RAKPhotographic was born in London in 1957. Growing up in the northwest of London offered at that time little opportunity to connect to nature. From a young age he always had an interest in wildlife starting out with a keen interest in all things aquatic. Moving out of London over twenty five years ago he extended his thirst for knowledge and began to study wildlife in greater detail, and from there photography was born. His photography concentrates on the natural world and is motivated by a desire to capture its beauty in camera. Ray`s favourite photographs are often those which record a 'decisive moment' and show wild creatures in the context of their natural habitat, sometimes with an element of minimalist. 

Since starting photography, Ray has built up an amazing portfolio of images covering many subjects, other images can be seen at Ray's Facebook page RAKPhotographic.

He has achieved a number of successes in major "UK" and international wildlife competitions and international salons. Examples of his work have been published in the National press, Wildlife Photography magazines and in the "RPS" Journal.
