Highlands Drone Photography


An award-winning professional photographer, videographer, and UAV Pilot, I have a passion for my native Yorkshire, particularly its landscape and wildlife.

With more than 25 years’ experience working and lecturing in photography and videography, I combine technical expertise with a creative approach, to bring out the best of each assignment. An eye for compelling angles for a photo story and a natural visual storyteller, I always aim to produce the best possible work. My images have featured in all the major national news publications and online platforms.

I regularly profile festivals and events, as well as more recently filming with Stephen Fry, Steve Backshall, Chris Packham, Ken Loach and Tom Kerridge. My film-work has featured on national TV shows, such as BBC Countryfile, and I’ve showcased iconic country homes, including Newby Hall and Castle Howard.

Meet The Team

Over the many years, I've been working in this industry I have built up a fantastic cooperative of friends and talent and call on them often for projects and assignments.

I love collaborating with other creatives to then be able to offer the best outcomes, be it audio, lighting, script, writing, Voiceover or anything else to do with Media production.
