"I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up later as a hobby – so that was that for 30 years!"

"I ended up reading English at Oxford and working as a strategy consultant for a few years before 'retiring' at the age of 29! I then travelled round the world for seven years, doing four ski seasons and working on an internet start-up in San Francisco, before finally returning to London in 2005. At that point, consulting work felt too stressful, so I decided to go 'quality of life', and I'm now a private tutor and wildlife photographer.

I became a tutor in 2009 when I happened to read an article in the paper called 'Ten Ways to Beat the Recession', and I started taking pictures again in 2013 when I received a random email inviting me to go on safari and climb Mount Kenya. I've been a wildlife photographer ever since, taking pictures in 25 countries on all seven continents and winning various awards including the Sunday Times and Audley Travel Big Shot.”
