This year has offered me exceptional opportunities that I could only have dreamed of twelve months ago. At the beginning of the year I made my first steps into the BBC Natural History Unit, where I've since met and worked with some of the most incredible filmmakers, photographers and creatives - and have made some amazing new friends along the way. My work has taken me to some amazing locations around the world - from New York to Norway, whilst my personal photography trips have taken me all around the UK, allowing me to further explore the diverse and wonderful creatures that live right on our doorstep which are often overlooked. I've got plenty of projects lined up for 2018, starting with a trip to Greece in just 3 days time. I can't wait to share more of my work and I'm so excited about what the future holds - from the amazing places I'll explore to the people I will meet and work with along the way. If you want to keep up to date with my travels, you can follow me on Instagram or Facebook where I'll be sharing all of my latest work and adventures!
Below are some of my favourite images from the past year. Wishing you all a very happy holidays and a wonderful new year!
