Originally from Wimborne, Nigel Tucker first came to live in Moorland Way at the ripe old age of three. At that time, the site now housing his Otterdene Studio was a favourite haunt of the goats that roamed the area of wilderness which gave the current road its name. Nigel can remember watching lorries arriving to level the road and tells me of an American tank which was discovered buried down towards Sandy Lane.
Educated at Castle Court and the grammar school in Bournemouth, Nigel eventually became a registered engineer and passed several years in the motor trade. A man of many talents, Nigel played water polo and swam for the county, is a proficient cook, plays 12 bar boogie on the piano and is the proud owner of a trike.
However, it was his photographic hobby which led to the decision to open the Otterdene Studio thirteen years ago. Entirely self-taught, his business now boasts a range of state of the art equipment which includes an American mount cutter that also embosses. Unusually in this area, he can scan items up to A3 size and print onto a variety of materials as wide as 44 inches. These include mugs, mouse mats and tee shirts. And for that special gift, Nigel also sells dichroic glass jewellery.
