I am a wildlife photographer predominantly focusing on the underwater world, although I do photograph terrestrial wildlife too. Having been an avid diver since my early teens I began underwater photography when I was 19 and I haven’t been able to go on a dive without a camera since!
I’m a passionate marine conservationist and love to capture ‘the moment’. My underwater photography pairs nicely with my marine biology background. I am the Founder and Managing Director of Love The Oceans, a non-profit marine conservation organisation in Mozambique. I specialise in shark fisheries, and Love The Oceans was initially founded to continue my research on this. However, I’m proud to say the organisation has grown rapidly since it’s birth and now encompasses many different areas of research including coral reef surveys and megafauna research.
I have a Masters in Marine Biology from the University of Southampton (United Kingdom) and I currently am supervising a few different Masters and Bachelors students conducting research on different areas of Mozambique’s marine ecosystem.
I strongly believe media and science go hand in hand in accomplishing a more sustainable planet. Media serves as a way to get the message of the plight of marine life out there and that is the aim of my photography.
I do work with a variety of brands, creating content for media use. Most recently I’ve worked with the 5 Star brand Ker and Downey and luxury lodge Leopard Plains in Botswana, Dive Pro Liveaboard in Egypt and Mike Ball Liveaboard in Australia.
