Born in London, I first moved to Derbyshire in my twenties and fell in love with the county’s wild landscapes and its diverse flora and fauna. I previously worked as an RHS trained Horticulturist where I began photographing plants.
I decided to combine my undergraduate study of Zoology with my love of photography and art by undertaking the MSc. Biological Photography & Imaging degree at the University of Nottingham. I have produced a short wildlife film, a high-quality wildlife magazine including articles and all photographic illustrations and layout, and a complete book exploring the wildlife of the National Trust’s Calke Abbey estate which is available to buy. Upon graduation I received a Distinction and an award.
Since completing my Masters degree I have embarked on a full-time career as a photographer with plans to travel, teach photography and continue to develop as a photographer. I now live in Abruzzo, Italy for some of the year and in the North-West Highlands of Scotland for some of the year.
Current projects include extensive landscape and wildlife photography in the Highlands and small islands of Scotland as well as the similarly dramatic and diverse mountainous region of Abruzzo in Italy, where bears and wolves can still be found. I also plan to further focus on portraiture and editorial photography.
I am working on producing a second book of photography.
Photographing wildlife, landscapes and more artistic imagery for me will be a lifelong obsession, and I enjoy sharing that with others with a similar love of photography.
