About Me

My journey from a nature loving child to a wildlife photographer.

My story

Growing up I have always been an animal lover. Also finding myself drawn to sciences throughout my education, I always knew that I wanted a career involving science and animals. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from Aberystwyth University, I felt like I still wanted to be closer to the animals in the wild. Wanting to travel, to see natural behaviours and having my own personal amazing wildlife experiences, I knew a career in a laboratory wasn’t for me.

Seeing wildlife photos and documentaries on TV my whole life, this was the best way for me to learn more about the natural world and always inspired me to seek relationships with the animals around me. Before starting my Master’s degree in Biological Photography and Imaging, I got my first camera, the Canon EOS 1300D. This marked the beginning of my ventures into wildlife photography, and I was amazed at how good it felt to be able to capture a scene or a moment in time where nature looked so beautiful to me.

Having gone from learning the basics of a camera through photographing the wildlife in my backgarden, to having produced a magazine; photographing rare species such as reed warblers and water rails; and filming otters and adders, I don’t intend on stopping anytime soon.
