Having spent my life surrounded by the countryside, my passion for the natural world led me to study Zoology at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campus. Here I gained extensive experience working with wildlife in the field in a number of remote locations across the world.

Following this I undertook an MA in Wildlife Documentary Production, where I took the opportunity to bring awareness to the rare and threatened machair habitat of the Outer Hebrides.  My multi award-winning documentary "Life on the Machair", explores the lives of a number of species that depend on this rapidly declining habitat, including corncrake, arctic tern and the great yellow bumblebee.

ABOUT

 

I'm a 25-year-old wildlife camera operator and assistant, based in the UK on the North Wales/Shropshire border.

 

Most recently I have shot short films for BBC Springwatch’s digital output and long lens footage for Winterwatch. Further afield I have spent a great deal of time exploring Scotland's Outer Hebrides, where I have worked as a camera operator/assistant and editor on a variety of documentaries for BBC Scotland and BBC Alba. 

I have also had photography work featured by BBC Earth, RSPB, ZSL and have been published in numerous magazines, including BBC Wildlife.

I am ideally based for accessing some of Britain's best wild places. Shropshire is one of England's most rural counties with a huge variety of habitats from farmland and ancient woodland, to the meres and mosses that make up one of the country's most important wetland areas. Across the border, North Wales is home to Snowdonia National Park, which boasts mountains, forests and miles of stunning coastline.

Aside from my filming work, I have worked as a research assistant for the Society for the Protection of Turtles in Cyprus, collecting data and aiding conservation efforts for the endangered Green and Loggerhead turtles.

 

I have also carried out field research in Scotland and South Africa, and for my undergraduate dissertation, conducted a year-long research project into the effect of social isolation on Capuchin monkeys in the pet trade.
