A B O U T    P A U L 

I am an award-winning nature photographer and tour guide from London (British Wildlife Photography Awards, Scottish Nature Photography Awards). I also work as a producer on documentaries and factual entertainment for Netflix, BBC, ITV, C4, C5, Discovery Network, History Channel, and National Geographic. 

 

Over the past 8 years, I have developed my wildlife photography tour business, with 11 tour destinations and counting. My tours are built on three core values:

  • Exclusive access to private sites and remarkable locations often overlooked by other tour operators; 

  • Intimate encounters with our target animals, in a variety of conditions, so clients can hone their craft;

  • Personalised guidance, so clients can develop their vision at their own pace, with 1-on-1 tuition, whilst enjoying local culture.

Empathy with clients, meticulous dedication to pioneering new ideas, and a passion for the natural world are crucial to planning these tours.
