“I will never look at my photos the same again. Incredible”

“Pace was perfect. Techniques couldn’t have been more helpful.”

“I literally have filled every gap that I wanted to – I feel liberated!”

Why me?

I have been fortunate to spend time shooting alongside some of the world’s leading wildlife photographers including Paul Nicklen, Cristina Mittermeier, Melissa Groo and Paul Carwardine. Time spent with these inspirational masters taught me many things that you simply do not pick up from a book or watching YouTube! Now, I am passing this knowledge onto you!

My work has been well received both internationally and at home. This is reflected in my images being published by National Geographic, the New York Times, BBC Wildlife and The Guardian amongst others.

My photography workshops are designed for me to share my years of experience, tips and tricks picked up along the way as well as mistakes made! I have international experience across North America, in India and of course here at home in beautiful Suffolk.

I am a fully qualified lecturer and continue to teach Wildlife and Conservation based modules at Suffolk New College. Blending my expertise in both Wildlife Photography and teaching I am able to craft and deliver well planned, structured and accessible sessions.

Sessions are informative, relaxed and fun as I aim to improve your photography with simple techniques to follow that apply to all forms of photography.
