I dreamed of becoming a photographer when I was 15, but my mother wanted me to go to Oxford instead!

I ended up reading English at Oxford and working as a strategy consultant for a few years before retiring at the age of 29. I then travelled round the world for seven years, doing four ski seasons and working on an internet start-up in San Francisco before finally returning to London in 2005. At that point, consulting work felt too stressful, so I decided to go 'quality of life'. I'm now a private tutor and international award-winning wildlife photographer.

I became a tutor in 2009 when I happened to read an article in the paper called 'Ten Ways to Beat the Recession', and I started taking pictures again when I received a random email inviting me to go on safari and climb Mount Kenya.

I've been a wildlife photographer since 2013, taking pictures in 26 countries on all seven continents and winning various awards including the Sunday Times/Audley Travel Big Shot.

I spend a lot of time in Africa, and Iíve been on over 300 game drives and boat rides there. Iíve also worked as a Resident Photographer at various safari lodges:

2019: Kleinís Camp, Serengeti Under Canvas, Grumeti Serengeti Tented Camp and Cottarís 1920s Safari Camp

2020: Gabus Game Ranch and Etosha National Park in Namibia

2022: Ol Jogi in Kenya and Muchenje in Botswana.

I'm always happy to answer questions from guests, whether itís about camera settings, the rules of composition or just identifying all the different species of wildlife.

Back at camp, I'll give the odd talk on camera technique, give feedback on their images and show them some of my own.

Maybe Iíll see you out thereÖ!
