As a keen naturalist and hill walker I consider myself extremely fortunate to have lived right next to the stunning Peak District National Park for my whole life. In no time at all I could be out photographing the wildlife and beautiful scenery on the majestic edges, lush green dales and bleak moorlands of the Peak District. I have been exploring the Peak District my entire life and built up an in-depth of knowledge of the amazing wildlife and scenery of the national park.
In 2019 came a big change where I took the opportunity to move to India to expand my international portfolio and range of worldwide tours. I’ve spent my whole life living around the Peak District and it feels very strange to be leaving my home behind for a while (I will be back!). However I’m really excited for the chance to develop my international portfolio and experience some more of the big wide world!
I care very deeply about conservation and ecology, and believe that photographers have a major role to play in conserving our environment by capturing its beauty and diversity. I always put the animal’s welfare first and I am a strong believer that if you have to cause disturbance or distress to capture an image it’s not worth it.
My work is available to licence and as various prints and gifts. I am also available for commissions and run photography workshops. If you have any queries or requests, please don’t hesitate to contact me via any of the contact details provided or use the form on the contact page.
