I am a young, award-winning wildlife photographer, artist, writer, and filmmaker from North Yorkshire, currently studying a Masters in Wildlife Filmmaking at UWE in Bristol. Ever since I can remember I've loved exploring nature. My interest in wildlife photography started when I was 10 and discovered the macro setting on my camera, leading me to take the "Dancing Hoverfly" photograph, and I have been photographing wildlife ever since!

I particularly enjoy taking photos of birds and invertebrates - I love finding unusual angles and lighting. My photos are taken from around the UK, showing the huge diversity of British wildlife. 

This website contains some of my favourite photos, illustrations, and poems from over the years, including some of my award-winning work. All photos, artwork, poems, and films are copyright and may not be reproduced in any form without my permission.

You can view my awards below, and some of my favourite pieces of photography, art, writing, and film in my portfolio. You can order my debut illustrated wildlife poetry book Rain before Rainbows, commission art pieces, or order art prints in my shop. If you are interested in ordering prints of my photography, or want to enquire about something else, please get in touch.

If you enjoy my work and are financially able to do so, please consider buying me a coffee (hot chocolate)! Feel free to subscribe to my newsletter for updates about projects I'm working on, previews of my work, and exclusive artwork and writing.
