Welcome to WildOates Photography

I have always been interested in wildlife, nature and photography. From a young age my father took me fishing. I can remember watching kingfishers sitting on my rod, foxes walking by and nuthatches scurry along branches.(I wish this happened whilst out with the camera!)
My photography really started with film, black and white processing in the Cambridge University Dept of Zoology's dark room. With help from the resident evening user John Overton.
Since that time family and work slowed my photography, however on my 50th birthday I went digital, this has now encouraged me back into taking photographs.
I am based in Comberton Cambridge and my passion is wildlife and the rural environment.
Limited edition prints are avalible for sale.

I hope you enjoy the pictures

I am updating the site so please be aware images may be moved and new ones added, I am about two years behind what should be on this site.
David Oates's gallery contains 9 photos.
