I am a teacher, wildlife photographer and herpetologist. Whenever I can I try to travel and photograph nature, especially amphibians and reptiles.

Recently, I decided that it was time for the website to evolve from The European Amphibian & Reptile Blog to Amphibian & Reptile Travels. This is because I have now started traveling further a field to explore different aspects of my interest in herpetology and therefore the site would need a wider coverage of visits to other places outside of Europe. In addition, I am also interested in almost all other kinds of wildlife but I especially like watching and photographing mammals and birds.
