About Me

I'm a photographer and writer specialising in sustainable travel, outdoors and the environment. I have fifteen years experience working in travel publishing and my work has been featured in a wide range of national publications and campaigns. 

I’m currently studying for an MSc in Environment and Sustainability at Birkbeck College, University of London and have been using this to inform my approach to both editorial and commercial photography commissions, as well as my own projects.

Commercial photography I’m an advocate for the “fly less, stay longer” approach to travel, so visiting closer-to-home destinations and promoting sustainable travel is very important to me. I’ve shot commercially for many Visit England affiliates including Visit Bournemouth, Visit Dorset, Visit Lancashire, Leeds and Partners, Marketing Manchester, Visit Leicester, Visit Birmingham, Visit Derby, Visit Stoke, Visit York, Visit Suffolk, Visit Essex and others. 

I’ve worked on campaigns for a variety of car-free travel options including bus companies Blue Star Bus, Go South Coast, Southern Vectis and Stagecoach. I was also pleased to produce images for the Share the Road campaign on the Isle of Wight and the Peak Cycle Shuttle in the Peak District.  

Editorial photography I’ve worked in travel publishing for fifteen years, notably for nine years in house at Rough Guides on illustrated travel titles. As a freelance photographer, I’ve shot ten guidebook destinations for Rough Guides, numerous Greentraveller guides covering British National Parks and AONBs, and written a variety of articles for roughguides.com about the art of travel photography. I'm a regular photographer for National Geographic Traveller (UK) magazine and have also been published in The Independent, the Evening Standard, TGO magazineCanadian Geographic, Travel Africa and LoveExploring.com

I’m currently pursuing travel topics that have sustainability at their heart and encourage travellers to understand and connect with the environment they’re visiting.
