Why me?


I have been fortunate to have spent time with (and learn from) the worlds leading wildlife photographers including Paul Nicklen, Cristina Mittermeier and Melissa Groo. Now I am passing those experiences and wisdom onto you.

I worked as a wilderness bear guide in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest for six years and am a qualified wildlife guide having learned from the best!

I have been published with National Geographic, the New York Times, The Guardian and the BBC Wildlife Magazine amongst others.

I am a qualified lecturer in Wildlife and Conservation with many years of teaching experience. I have crafted the ability to blend photography theory with practical in a way that is accessible for all.

I believe that I have found my own style and niche in photography and I use a handful of principles in my work that achieve the results that I do. These principles are what I share with you through practical settings that you can use and adapt with in your own style to enhance your photography. Of course a few special tips and tricks picked up along the way also!

I hope I’ll be able to join you on your photography journey and make a positive impact on your practice.
