The Journey

Edinburgh UniversityI started photography at an early age but it was during my time studying zoology at Edinburgh University that I really developed a major interest in the subject.

Having gained an Honours degree, I studied red deer on the Isle of Rum, a stunning island in the Inner Hebrides, and on the Morvern Peninsula, a beautiful area of hills on the west coast of Scotland.

This lead to a further degree (an M. Phil) and contracts for a variety of scientific research groups based in Cambridge.

It was here that I met researchers working for the British Antarctic Survey, and in 1982 was offered an eighteen-month post studying albatrosses on the island of South Georgia.
