Over the last 40 years Stan Davies has been actively involved in many forms of photography; weddings, portraits, sports, landscapes and wildlife. Nothing is more challenging and satisfying than travelling to other cultures and cities to record their way of life.

He has written travel articles on Venice, Budapest, Prague, Kangaroo island, Murchison, Kalgoorlie and Africa. In recent times he has run workshops for Nikon.
