Environmental Photojournalist

  • Location: UK
  • Freelancer: Available

I describe my main subject focus as environmental photojournalism, capturing natures beauty and how humans are affecting it. I first became interested in photography aged eleven, building on a lifelong love and interest for nature, which combined into my passion. Constantly developing, I have had success in international competitions at junior levels and now getting noticed in adult competitions by organisations such as National Geographic and Travel Photographer of the Year. Having just graduated from the University of Sheffield with a Zoology degree, I am now looking to start a career where I can combine my science and photographic interests to inspire conservation efforts. I love capturing moments that tell a story and taking landscape pictures that depict the essence of a location. I attempt to get the viewer to feel the way I felt when I took the image – it’s about experiencing the wonders of the natural world and how we relate to it.
