Practical Photography Column

I am really pleased to announce that I have a new column in Practical Photography magazine. Starting in the Spring edition, which has now been published, I will be writing about my experiences photographing wildlife and the natural world.

The January edition of Practical Photography contained a seven page feature about my ongoing Badger photography project. Following the publication of this feature, I was offered the opportunity to write a wildife and natural world column by Practical Photography’s Group Editor, Ben Hawkins. I follow on from the excellent column written by wildlife photographer Simon Roy ( over the previous 18 months and sit alongside Verity Milligan’s ( column on landscape photography.

As part of my introduction to its readers, I spent a day photographing urban Red kites with Practical Photographer’s Features Editor, Louise Carey, and Videographer, Jake Kindred, for a feature in Practical Photography’s Learn Photography Now. Whilst the weather and conditions were a little challenging, we all had a great time and a video of our exploits is included with the Spring edition.

I am really looking forward to writing about my experiences photographing wildlife and the natural world over the coming months and hope that Practical Photographer’s readers enjoy reading about them.
