Growing up on the Isles of Scilly and being surrounded by the ocean is where my passion for marine life began. My family and I would always be in or around the sea, swimming, kayaking or snorkelling. The first time I put on a snorkel mask and witnessed the mysterious world below, I knew this is where I wanted to spend my time. 

My love for photography and the ocean came together when I began my journey with underwater photography. After moving back to Cornwall for education, I went on to study Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University. Learning about UK marine life encourages me to get out and explore Cornwall's underwater world.

Snorkelling is my main pursuit. I am also a qualified PADI Advanced Open Water diver. My goal is to visually portray the amazing habitats and species there are around the Cornish coastline and highlight the reality of our forever changing seas. 

My photograph STARGAZER was shortlisted at the 2023 British Photography Awards under the category 'Water Life'. Link below!!!
