Lately I have been holding onto these breaks from my work where I can go photograph for fun, no time limit, no expectations and no pressure, which is hard to do when there is constant projects to be doing but hopefully this will be my last procrastination blog and I will actually finish all this work.

Yesterday I took a trip to the Eden project, a beautiful haven I have visited on various…

Despite my recent lack of blogs I have taken a break to shoot just for the fun of it and my first trip was to Plymouth aquarium; a spontaneous trip yet enjoyable all the same. As many people know photography is rather difficult and tedious in public aquariums due to low lighting, busy crowds, thick dirty glass and constant glare, which was no different with this trip. With no end goal I tried to…

I took a break from my studies to photograph around Bissoe valley Nature reserve, focusing on the smaller species located there. I really enjoy macro photography but this was the first time using a Canon 65mm and hopefully the last, such a complicated lens to use the focus plane is so easily jolted leaving images blurred was rather irritating but after long time spent with each species I…

Work with Victor Simpson

Victor Simpson, and his wife, currently run the Wildlife Veterinary Investigation Centre from their home in Cornwall since retiring in 2001, to continue their study of diseases within British wildlife.

One of the first things I noticed and continued to notice throughout my time in Iceland was the abundance of fur. In the colder climates of the northern hemisphere fur was an ideal choice to provide warmth but in modern times it seems to be a fashion statement, no more then a murderous act of greed. Frequent fur vended is Mink Mustela vison, rabbit Lepus curpaeums, seal Pagophilus groenlandicus,…

Iceland with its vast variety of bird species during the summer months is home to numerous seabirds including puffins, skuas, and kittiwakes is no wonder it is a popular place with ornithologists. Moving to the island during the end of the last ice age the Artic Fox is the only native land mammal, which arrived by walking over the frozen sea. Various other wild mammals in Iceland include mink,…

Taking a short breather from my Iceland blogs and yesterday took a walk round Sheepstor, Dartmoor with my boyfriend. It was really nice to just relax and photograph for fun rather then for any specific projects or on a time limit, which is a reminder of why I love photography so much. I have never been to Dartmoor before and I found it absolutely stunning and peaceful compared to Cornwall…

James Arthur album artwork

Last night till this morning been painting my entry for james Arthurs new album which he’s giving the public the chance to draw Tilikum; the captive orca on his cover.

The second free day and my last in Iceland was spent on an 800km round trip on a Glacial tour in the south. With only a few certain destinations our guide allowed us to pick our subjects as and when we saw them starting with Icelandic Horses; a joy for me but not for many of my peers. Standing between twelve to fourteen hands to the British eyes they are ponies but they are unique as they hold…

During my time in Iceland I was lucky enough to witness one of the Seven Wonders of the World three times; the Northern lights. Also known as ‘Aurora borealis’ in the north and ‘Aurora australis’ in the south the lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres and appear in various colours which differ depending on the gases in the atmosphere, green is the most…
