I became interested in Nature from a young age and was rarely at home, always wandering the woods and rivers looking for wildlife. My late Grandfather was a big influence in my childhood showing me signs of nature and different aspects of life from habitats and seasons. Some 30 years on I am still as restless and keen to learn more about the Natural world. My favourite destination in the UK is the Shetland Isles. It is a Wildlife Photographer’s dream, with vast seabird Colonies and northern specialties there is always something to photograph. I have a deep passion for travelling to the Arctic and love the challenge of working in this difficult and unpredictable environment. My images are widely published and represented by some of the leading Picture agencies in the UK like Naturepl and RSPB images. I have been lucky over the years to win a few awards for my photography. My work has featured in some of the leading events on Wildlife photography like Wild Wonders of Europe and 2020 Vision. I run a successful photography tour business with Mark Sisson called Natures Images which specializes in running tours in the UK and overseas and together we have built it to be one of Europe’s leading photo tour companies. I had my first feature published in the June 2014 issue of National Geographic. The feature is about the Atlantic Puffin. The project spanned 5 years and I visited some of the most beautiful colonies in the UK, Iceland and Norway in search of images of this iconic bird. It was one of the hardest projects I have undertaken as the demands and standards are so high in shooting for National Geographic.
