Alan Vant founded ajvphoto in 2012 as somewhere to display his pictures for others to enjoy. His passion for photography has been there from a very early age having owned his first camera at the age of 6, capturing family unawares. A trip to Florida in the summer of 2010 ignited his desire to photograph wildlife as it gave him so many opportunities. "The wildlife held more appeal than doing the normal British tourist thing of going round the theme parks." Never happier than when I have a camera in my hand, it goes virtually everywhere with me. Looking to break into the full time world of photography and not afraid to shoot new subjects and build my portfolio from wildlife and sports.
