With a passion for travel and the natural world, my photography has taken me to all parts of the globe. From the plains of Africa to the glaciers of Greenland, the Arctic and Antarctica, I’ve been privileged to see a huge portion of our incredible planet whilst capturing photographs both for commercial and personal projects.
In 2011, my love for travel photography really kicked off when I spent 3 months working in South Africa on a private game reserve. Accompanying and assisting the park rangers on a daily basis, I was able to capture a huge diversity of wildlife. My proudest moment came when I was asked to document an anti-poaching campaign carried out by the park to protect its white and black rhinos. The resulting shots were published in BBC Wildlife Magazine with my Prehistoric Beauty image being published by National Geographic and highly commended in the Monochrome Awards.
A few year’s later whilst living in Switzerland and working on a sports photography assignment, I captured the image ‘A Guides Eye View’ depicting two mountain guides bringing a helicopter into land during an extreme ski and snowboard competition. As well as being published by National Geographic, the image won me a spot as a highly commended finalist in Travel Photographer of the Year 2014, a competition I’m honoured to have subsequently been shortlisted in a further two times for (2015, 2016).
In 2018, having joined the charity African Initiatives on a 2-week trip to Tanzania to document their success over the past 20 years, I captured a shot of an Ostrich flock running across a hill in the Serengeti. The shot was awarded the Fujifilm Award for Innovation 2018 and to date is my most treasured image.
Along with the above highlights, my most memorable expedition came in November 2015 on a 20-day voyage to The Falkland Islands and South Georgia. The array of wildlife in the sub-Antarctic region was truly jaw dropping and to be able to capture images of King Penguins, Albatross, Elephant Seals and Whales in their natural environment was a dream come true.
