Clive Collins was born in 1944 in Palmerston North and after living in numerous towns during his childhood, eventually settled in Christchurch in 1961. He is now retired and lives with his wife of 48 years Lesley. After a lifetime of playing many musical instruments in numerous bands, he finally laid his instruments down five years ago and took up photography when he bought a serious Nikon camera. While he spent most of his early years concentrating on landscapes, he now enjoys the challenge of capturing high quality bird images.
The new range he has introduced is a combination of two or more images and is designed to provide a vehicle for the beautiful birds he captures. Mood and atmosphere plus natures beautiful creations provide the ingredients for the final product.
