Spike Walker – Photography

All of the specimen photography provided on this site is kindly supplied by Spike Walker.

Spike is a biologist who has been producing micrographs for over 60 years, starting out as a boy with a basic microscope and home-made camera. He works at home in the West Midlands, in a laboratory crammed with microscopes and technical paraphernalia.

Spike has won 19 Wellcome image Awards since he started entering in 2002. In 2011 he won the Royal Photographic Society’s Combined Royal Colleges Medal. Spike’s photography is now achieved using various Zeiss microscopes.

None of the specimen photography was achieved with the products available on this site. The photographs are purely included to reflect the potential uses of the advertised microscopes and kind of specimens that the microscope would be used to observe.
