I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up later – so that was that for 30 years! Here’s to what might have been…

I turned professional in 2013, and I now focus mainly on wildlife photography. I’ve taken pictures in 24 countries on all seven continents with my Nikon D800 and D810 digital SLRs and a range of lenses and accessories.

If you’d like to rent or buy a print or hire me for a talk, a lesson or a photo shoot, please contact me through LumiArts.
