Hello, my name is Roger and from an early age I have had an interest in plants and animals and it was this interest that initially led me to be trained as a botanist. Although my professional working life has not been in the botanical field I have, in the last 10-15 years, combined my interests in photography and plants to produce a pictorial flora of the Mani, which has resulted in the publication of several books.
I have been lucky to own a house in the village of Stoupa in the Mani which has given me a base and access for plant hunting during the different seasons of the year. I have also travelled extensively around the world photographing birds and animals in more than 20 different countries. I would be glad to share with you more details and explain to you the secrets of botanical Mani.
