How it All Started
People often ask about my introduction to wildlife photography. I suppose it really came about by a chance meeting with another photographer. At the time I was working as a freelance journalist, writing for a bunch of outdoor and wildlife magazines. I’d completed a story for a well-known glossy walking magazine, and was really pleased to see the stunning photography they’d sourced to illustrate the piece, and the even better news was that the photographer whose work they’d used was a friend of mine. We met up over a beer, and it transpired that he’d actually been paid more (quite a bit more!) for his two published images than I had for my 1500 word feature! I bought a second-hand camera the next day and set about teaching myself how to use the thing.
