“David’s background is that of an Academic and naturalist – but the use of Photography to elucidate the intricacies of nature from an academic view point has now been transformed into a new sense of enquiry - the pursuit of art and wonder in Nature.

Winner of the European Wildlife photographer of the Year in 2008, and numerous awards in the Veolia Wildlife Photographer of the Year - amongst many others - have established David’s position as one of the world’s foremost nature photographers.

David’s quirky insight into nature’s little details, has led to his collaboration on Prof. Brian Cox’s “Wonders of Life” series on BBC2 (Feb 2013), as their series macro- and specialist photographer.”
