I enjoy landscape photography, and use many of my own photos to illustrate my articles and some of my books.
I also supply images to the Alamy photographic agency. You can view my portfolio by clicking here: Alamy – Simon Whaley Portfolio.
I’m a BBC WeatherWatcher, uploading photos most days. My BBC WeatherWatcher name is Snapper Simon, and hundreds of my images have been used on regional weather forecasts (usually my local regions BBC Midlands Today), but also on national forecasts as part of the BBC’s One o’clock, Six o’clock or Ten o’clock news broadcasts.
