Leicester, Midlands, United Kingdom
For as long as I can remember I’ve loved the outdoors. My earliest memories are of exploring the fields behind my house, climbing trees, and building ramps for my bike. I got my first camera aged 14 to photograph me and my friends skating, and since then I’ve loved capturing moments and sharing them with others. As I got older I began taking more trips and spending more of my time outdoors; I discovered mountains, wild camping and starry night skies – my eyes were opened to the incredible beauty of the world, and of course I had my camera by my side to capture it all.
I’ve lived in the city and spent time in the hustle-and-bustle of modern life, but I’m finding more and more that it’s the simple things that keep me grounded and at peace. Fresh air, sleeping outdoors, and incredible views are all things that help keep me humble and grateful. It’s in nature that I feel most comfortable and refreshed, and I take every opportunity I can to get away and spend some time in the wild.
Photography has taught me to appreciate the world around me and to look at my surroundings in a different way. It’s taken me to places I would never have dreamed of, and enabled me to experience things that I never would have otherwise. It’s been an incredible ride so far and I’m excited to see what the future holds.
