There seems to be no limits as to where he will take his gear - up mountains, under the ocean, into small English brooks, his own backyard. He captures images of mammals, reptiles, insects and fish that most people will never otherwise see. It's such a treat to see what he finds.
In addition to his photography, Perks lectures, gives workshops and volunteers as a conservationist. He is currently working on crowd-funded project filming all of Britain's freshwater fish and the threats they face. It's called Beneath the Waterline and you can get more information here.
