In his own words: “Well, I haven’t always been the wildlife photographer, film maker and presenter that most people know me as. All this came about because of a serious accident that changed my life. I tell the story in my autobiography, ‘A Wild Life on Exmoor’. Before this I was a farmer, quarryman, forestry worker, gravedigger and, if truth be told, a poacher. How things have changed, but those days certainly left me with some stories to tell. I still live in North Devon, right on the edge of Exmoor, as I’ve done since the day I was born. What more could a man want?” Johnny has written a number of books about Exmoor and a collection of West Country Tales.
