About Me

Here you can learn a little bit more about me, my qualifications, what inspires me to do what I do and why I love it so much.

Victoria studied Zoology with Marine Zoology before going on to study for an MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation. Nature has been a passion from an early age with photography following closely behind as a way to show people what she was seeing and studying. Over the years she has developed her scientific and photographic skills specialising in macro photography championing the smaller species we have around us and now brings these skills and creative to wider wildlife photography.

Victoria is a Manfrotto Ambassador, has been on the judging panels for both Bird Photographer Of The Year (BPOTY) and British Wildlife Photography Awards (BWPA) and has contributed stills, video and articles to magazines, books and TV series including National Geographic and The BBC.

More recently she has joined the Purple Crow team writing articles on nature and wildlife and started the UK Wildlife Podcast with good friend Neil Phillips where they discuss all aspects of UK nature and wildlife, news and wildlife photography.

Victoria published her first book Forgotten Little Creatures in 2017 celebrating local wildlife through bringing together photography with scientific and historical facts and is now continuing the project and working on future books.
Although based in Somerset, Victoria gives talks about her work and runs both group workshops and 1-2-1 tuition across the country, helping people to make the most of their subjects and equipment whist getting to grips with tricky habitats and thinking about the importance of being responsible when photographing nature.

If you wish to discuss commissions, assignments, projects, talks, workshops or one-to-one workshops, would like to use any of the images for editorial purposes or commercial licensing or have any specific requirements please contact Victoria via the contact form with all the relevant information.

Many of the images in the galleries are available to purchase as fine art prints, full wrap canvases, HD metal prints and photo prints on wood with each item being made to order. For sizes and prices just click on the image you are interested in, other sizes are available on request. Victoria's blog has now been added and will be updated regularly with stories and tips and tricks for photographing different species.

If you would like to place an order several items from the shop and/or from the portfolio section please contact me with a list of the items you would like and I will group them together in one parcel and send you a relevant price. These can also be collected from me in Frome or you can visit the shop in Shepton Mallet, Somerset if you live locally.

I hope that you enjoy browsing the galleries and reading the blog posts.
