Most of Bryan’s childhood was spent in the countryside. His father was a very good naturalist and bird artist who gave him an interest in the natural world very early in life. At school he developed an interest in photography inspired by one of the great pioneers of bird photography Eric Hosking, and this interest has continued throughout his life. He spent his national service in the Royal Navy on submarines, then 2 years in Kenya at Agricultural College before returning to the UK to farm. He married in 1955 and bought a small farm in Devon where he still lives with two married sons in family partnership running dairy and pig enterprises. In 1981 he was awarded an Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society in natural history and has been lucky enough to travel to many countries including the Indian continent, north and south America, Europe and the Arctic and Antarctic photographing the natural world.
