I am a wildlife cameraman, photographer and film maker based on Exmoor in the UK. I have credits for over 50 TV programs on BBC2, BBC4, ITV, C4 and others.
Having spent most of my life growing up in the wilds of Devon, Exmoor is a place I know intimately. My wildlife photography is all with wild animals and birds and for me finding the wildlife, learning about it and respecting it is just as important as “getting the shot”. I quite often take no photographs when others would disturb an animal just to get their shot. Through this approach all my images from Exmoor are unique and I have gained a great understanding of wildlife behaviour and appreciate the animals birds and reptiles that all have to share their space with us on the doorstep.
