Welcome Note


Thank you for visiting the Gallery which opened on the 20th August 2009.

The Gallery has been an ambition for some time. The photos chosen, come from a wide range of stock photos, but are representative of the character or culture of the places or wildlife visited.

All photographers need the support of friends and colleagues and I would like to thank all those who helped this Gallery to be possible with their encouragement. It includes people who have shown me their country, guided me to books and information on known and unknown photo sites and to those who patiently wait while the photos are taken and those who are always willing to see more photos and give feedback.

Enjoy the gallery and browsing the pictures. Please look in from time to time. New developments will have a quick write-up on this page and photos will be changed and new ones added as we go along.

August 2017 - Eight Anniversary Donation
On the eight anniversary of the launch of the White Stork Gallery and to celebrate 'Worldwidecon' we have made a special donation to the Disasters Emergency Committee ('DEC'),East Africa Crisis Appeal. Hopefully it will help to alleviate to some extent the terrible suffering so many people young and old continue to suffer in this part of our world.
June 2017 - NEW EXHIBITION
The last few months has been spent organising the archives of our photos. With thousands of photos to be taken off old memory formats and a reduced number archived onto new drives you will understand I hope why the start of this year has been quieter than usual. Thanks for staying with us !

We are pleased to announce the next e-Exhibition 23: Milford and Doubtful Sounds, South Island, New Zealand. I hope you will get a chance to have a browse though the selection. You can spot the very rare yellow tufted penguin, a New Zealand Robin camouflaged in forest flowers and the wonderful and strange green moss forest at Gunn Lake that inspired characters in Lord of the Rings.

The exhibition will be up for 3 months and we will be back shortly with some new materials for the galleries.

In the meantime we are reaching 900,000 views of the Gallery which is fantastic. ! So many thanks for all the support and I hope you will stay with us throughout this year.
August 2016 - Donations
This year in memory of 'worldwidecon' on his birthday we have donated funds in his memory to UNICEF and the British Red Cross.

Both organisations are doing extraordinary work in helping vunerable children particularly in Syria and they deserve great praise for trying to make the world a better place for now and for future generations.
August 2016
Wow! The gallery has just reached another milestone with over 750,000 views. Thank you so much !

The third London Walk Gallery is now open and in this one we are presenting the photos as digital sketches. Hope you get a sense of the sights, sounds and aromas of the famous Borough Market in Southwark.
