I am a self-taught, 21-year-old photographer specialising in wildlife based in Staffordshire, England. My exploration into our natural world has been inspired by encounters from a young age with Badgers and Hedgehogs. However photography came many years later when I received a DLSR camera as a Christmas present. Combining the two, wildlife photography has become an outlet to daily life and a passion that has taken me around the world and has led to me capturing unforgettable moments. A highlight in my photographic career so far was traveling extensively around Australia in 2018, from Sydney to Ayers Rock and from Perth to the Pilbara, I covered thousands of miles driving through the outback in search of reptiles and it was all worth it to find several of Australia’s gems. Another would be seeing the Aurora borealis in the amazing setting of Grundarfjörður, Iceland, as they danced above the famous Kirkjufell mountain. Being surrounded by friends and like-minded photographers really made the experience one to remember. As for the future and the direction of my photography I would like to work more with individual species and tell their story, through the latest technology of camera trapping and also long lens photography. Another big ambition for me is to work more around the world, photographing all the species I have admired for years…
