Growing up in a small Oxfordshire village, I was very much
shaped by rural life, developing a love for nature and the
countryside. I got my first taste for photography while on
work experience at, what was then, Oxford Scientific Films. I was
fascinated by the diversity of slides that would come into the
photo library from all around the world. Inspired by this
experience, I went on to study Biological Imaging at the
University of Derby where I combined my love of images with that of
human evolution and illustration. On leaving Derby, I worked as a
Technical Illustrator in the Science and Medicine department at
Oxford University Press, where I spent 5 years in digital image
creation and manipulation. This proved an invaluable experience
when I later took up the post of Scanning Co-ordinator in the
National Trust Photo Library when it moved from London to Swindon
For the past 11 years, I've photographed and experienced many of
the amazing places that the Trust cares for; from woodland,
coastline and mountains to tiny cottages, grand houses and vast
estates. I cover the whole diversity of day-to-day life at Trust,
and particularly enjoy photographing interiors and conservation
work. I continue to be inspired by the stories that underpin
Trust's purpose and by my fellow photographers, who help
communicate such amazing and vital work.
