About Me

I am an Award winning wildlife and nature photographer based in Surrey, England.

My interest in photography grew out of a lifelong love for nature and the outdoors. I have a particular interest in British wildlife and spend a lot of time photographing the wildlife around my home in Surrey. For me, one of the most important aspects of wildlife photography is spending the maximum possible amount of time with a subject, building up a knowledge and understanding of its habits and behaviour and using that to get shots of it going about its everyday life in its natural surroundings.

My photo of a Common Lizard was chosen as the winner of the portraits category in the 2015 British Wildlife Photography Awards. In 2017, my image of a Roe Deer was Highly Commended in the Urban Wildlife category of the same competition. I have also had photographs shortlisted in a number of other major competitions including Wildlife Photographer of the Year, GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, and Outdoor Photographer of the Year. My work has been published in the national and international media, appearing in newspapers including The Guardian, The Independent, and The Daily Mail and magazines including the Woodland Trust’s Broadleaf magazine and German magazine Stern.

My Gear

Most of my equipment is made by Canon. I currently use a 1DX mkII body, which I pair with a variety of lenses, most often a Canon 500mm f4 prime lens. Wide angle work is done either with a Sigma 15mm fisheye lens, or a Laowa 15mm lens – an incredible wide angle lens that is capable of up to full 1:1 magnification, allowing me to show even the smallest subjects in their habitat.
