About Me

Cumbrian boy living in Cornwall studying Marine and Natural History Photography

 

For me photography is a way of life. I always strive to achieve the highest standards possible at any given task and in any situation. My goal is to create images and stories that help people to fall in love with the natural world; to show people that supporting wildlife is crucial to our futures.

So far, at the age of twenty, I have been lucky enough to travel across much of Europe, including such places as Finland, Norway, Iceland, Spain, France, Croatia and many more. I have had many wonderful experiences photographing wildlife not only abroad but in my own back garden.

My latest venture is to travel to Norway where I will be a tour leader for the company "Wildlife Finnmark" taking people on birdwatching and photographic tours throughout the north of the country.
