I grew up on a small farm and I guess this is where my passion for the natural world started. I remember waking up at the crack of dawn before school so I could go out and find the roe deer and brown hare. I had some amazing encounters and this is where I learnt to photograph and film wildlife. Living in the countryside I saw farming techniques evolve and become ever more mechanised, I remember the use of pesticides became so high we weren’t able to drink the water from the well and at the same time I saw populations of animals like the barn owl plummet. Seeing first hand the effects we were having on the natural world gave me the fuel to try and do something about it. Whilst at University, a friend and I founded our organisation Stand Up for Nature, we empower organisations and communities in developing countries by producing inspiring local language films, we then use a bicycle powered cinema that I designed and built to get our films to people living in remote areas around the world.
I am an experienced wildlife cameraman and National Geographic young explorer, I am used to operating in hostile conditions. I have been very fortunate to be the imaging ambassador for Sony UK, Manfrotto and have also worked with Canon and DJI.
