I am a London based photographer currently focusing on the wildlife and landscapes of east Devon, England. Working on a collaborative project with Clinton Devon Estates I am photographing the habitats and animals of this unique landscape that will be published in a soft cover book in September 2017. The books purpose is to provide a landscape-scale wildlife prospectus, vision and strategy for wildlife across the Estate. It articulates and quantifies the key elements and importance of the natural assets held by the Estate, and outlines a broad roadmap and priorities for its improvement.
I undertake consultancy projects working with organisations to reveal the hidden beauty of their land, estates, and wild spaces for dissemination with their stakeholders as well as to create books and other publicity material. I have extensive experience both privately and with schools to provide activity based photo workshops and lectures about my work.
My photographs are represented by Nature Picture Library – a leading UK specialist in natural history imagery.
