About Bernard Picton

As a child Bernard was always interested in the natural world, collecting Butterflies and falling into ponds from the age of eight. As a teenager he began to photograph birds, flowers and insects using a Praktica SLR camera. Whilst studying Botany at Bristol University in 1970 Bernard joined the Sub-Aqua club and learned to dive. Encouraged by Dr. Tom Thompson of the zoology department he began to study nudibranch sea slugs and was able to reciprocate by helping train Tom to dive.

On leaving University Bernard was employed by Bristol Museum and then as a marine biologist by the Ulster Museum, Belfast. He built collections of marine invertebrates at the museum and took part in diving surveys of marine life and habitats. Photography was always an important part of these surveys and recreational dives.

Bernard has published books on Echinoderms and Nudibranchs of Britain and Ireland. He is now partly retired and devoting more time to the study of nudibranchs.
