My name is James and I have worked as a professional outdoor photographer for over 20 years. I take commissions from a diverse range of clients that include garden designers, food companies, conservation charities and a number of magazine publishers. I also spend a lot of my time producing creative stock photography for the following image libraries: Getty Images, Alamy, Arcangel and GAP Gardens.

My passion for the outdoors started when I was in the Scouts and has grown ever since. Even during my Zoology degree, it was the field work that excited me most and when the opportunity arose to study for an MSc in Biological Photography, I jumped at the chance and graduated with distinction.  Shortly after, my wife and I began married life living and working in New Zealand and Australia, exploring the magnificent wilderness those countries have to offer. We have since moved back to the UK and now live in Bristol with our three children, enjoying outdoor adventures as a family.

Although I am utterly passionate about my work, I do have other interests and when I’m not out with my camera or looking after our children, you’ll no doubt find me either: on my bike, in the garden, repairing our 300 year old house, working on our allotment or in the kitchen, cooking up something with the produce we grow. If truth be told however, the camera usually finds its way into all these activities too!
