My name is Richard cook. I am a wildlife and nature photographer living on the tropical island of Okinawa.

Okinawa is a small Japanese island with the Pacific ocean to the west and the beautiful East china sea to the east. I developed my passion for photography while living here and although I spend most of my time photographing birds, I also love taking macro shots, the beautiful seascapes here and just about anything and everything else.

I am also a part time bird guide and have shown people from all over the world around this lovely little island in search of it's varied bird and wildlife.
