British Military Veteran Became A Nature And Wildlife Photographer

Miguel Denyer has many descriptions to his name; he is a disabled expatriate British military veteran, freemason, nature and wildlife photographer, firearms instructor, craftsman, gardener, and ordained minister based in the Metro Detroit area, Michigan.

“About five years ago, after suffering two Ischemic Strokes (caused by blood clots in the brain) I started to do nature photography as part of my recovery,” Denyer shared with Bored Panda. “I am self-taught having never had the time or money to pursue any formal education in photography, but I seem to have a natural talent for it. I love nature photography and now make my living from selling prints of my work at various art shows.”
