Simon is a professional ecologist, landscape and nature photographer and is ideally suited to provide you with all the outdoor photography tuition that you need. As you begin to grow as a photographer, it's not only important to understand the technicalities of photography and how light impacts our images, but it also helps if your mind can focus on absorbing the atmosphere of your surroundings and all that make up our landscape. Simon's extensive knowledge of habitats, plants and animals and their inter-relationships will help you along this journey, by giving you a much deeper understanding and appreciation for how the landscape ticks.

*Important note: Please bear in mind that with nature photography tuition, particularly animals and in some cases birds (depending on the species), the subjects can be very difficult to get intimate shots of without prior planning. However, if you are currently working on a particular species and have progressed some way to that ideal shot, then I am happy to plan your one to one with this in mind. Generally speaking, one to one days shooting animals or birdlife will be undertaken at locations where particular species are known to frequent, such as squirrel reserves, deer parks or wetland centres with bird hides etc. This will ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your day.
