“Only when the last tree has died, the last river been poisoned, and the last fish been caught, will we realise we cannot eat money.”
Where it Began
Scott began wildlife photography in 2013 after a passion for the natural world and a family history of photography. Previously an avid fisherman, his knowledge of wildlife and fieldcraft, gained whilst growing up on a country estate, is a handy tool to try and get the best from photographing wildlife in it’s natural surroundings.
Armed with a basic Canon camera and 500mm telephoto lens he pursued his quarry around the local cannock chase area, on a constant learning curve, taking photographs of virtually anything that moved. During this period Scott met his mentor and respected local photographer, Derek Lees, who took him under his wing and showed him most of what he knows today regards using a camera correctly.
Where it is Today
Today, Scott likes to focus on a subject for a period of time and try to build up a catalog of images from that project. Mammals and Birds of Prey are one of his favourite subjects, to get out and learn about while the shutter clicks away.
Scott is available for worldwide photography assignments whereby he will work to a brief, both using self initiative or under editorial guidelines. If you wish to enquire further please contact us for further details.
Working for a better future
As a contributor to Arkive.org, Scott hopes his photos will help promote conservation of the natural world and show the amazing world around us.
He is very passionate about educating our future generations to protect nature and species for the future, as well as working hard to raise awareness and campaigning of any local issues regards to damaging environments and habitats for our wildlife.
Awards & Recognition
Scott picked up his first awards in the Summer of 2014 and continued the success into the winter picking up more awards in November 2014 & throughout 2015, winning 8 trophies, along with many individual images been awarded through exhibitions and club events.
I have now done 2 workshops with Scott, a great session with Owls and a really mega session with Eagles. Scott subtle approach to coaching is excellent but the most important thing is animal/bird welfare is second to none. Scott also has an excellent hide which I dubbed the “Executive Shed” with a reflection pool, which attracts an amazing array of birds.
Just returned from the Spring Scotland trip. 3 days of fantastic activity, Kingfisher, cuckoo, dippers and of course sparrow hawk affectionately known as Mad Max. Organisation really good as was accommodation. Highly recommended I also went on winter trip as well.
