  • Testimonials

    Ted Andrews

    Freelance Author, Artist, Cartoonist & Illustrator

    "Such is my admiration for the work of Bob and Lesley Mitchell that the temptation to describe their photographic images in the most glowing terms is hard to resist. But any flowery adjectives of mine, I fear, wouldn't do them justice.

    I could speak of their passion for bird photography, the extreme lengths they commit to, to capture the perfect 'shot' and their quite extraordinary powers of observation driven by the very real love of our native and migratory bird species. But why bother? The beautiful photographic images recorded by Bob and Lesley Mitchell will speak far more eloquently than I could ever hope to manage.

    Enjoy their work, choose your favourite (difficult) then order a print for your wall. It will enrich your life."
