I am a wildlife photographer and TV researcher based in Bristol.
Since I was 10 I’ve been obsessed with wildlife. This started when I went out birding with my dad, but I soon wanted to start recording what I was seeing. My first forays into photography were via digiscoping, where a compact camera is attached attached to a telescope. Despite the vast limitations of this technique, and although almost all my photos resembled distant smudges more than anything else, I was totally hooked, and wanted more. After saving up for what seems like an age, I took the plunge and I bought my first DSLR set-up, a Nikon D60 and Sigma 50-500mm lens.
The obsession that started nearly 15 years ago is still there today, and since those early efforts my photography has taken me to a huge range of locations, from urban jungles photographing wildlife such as waxwings at the side of London's A1 or birds around the industrial estates of northeast England to primates and parrots in the more conventional jungles of Peru, and vast herds of animals in the expansive plains of East Africa.
Today, my images are represented by Nature Picture Library, and have been awarded in several competitions, such as Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Asferico Photocontest, the British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA), and ZSL Photography Competition. I also contribute images and features to several national magazines and newspapers, as well as New Nature Magazine, an online natural history magazine written, edited and produced entirely by young conservationists, ecologists, writers, photographers and communicators.
I have recently started in natural history TV production, where I work as a researcher at Wildstar Films.
