Publishing Director William Collins
Originally trained as a zoologist at Bristol University, a spell in bookselling and a specialisation in entomology resulted in a career in publishing. Now Publishing Director at William Collins, where he has worked since 1987, Myles is currently responsible for the science, outdoor and nature titles, including the renowned New Naturalist series. He has always held a deep fascination of the natural world, with a particular fondness for the fauna of Suffolk and the Outer Hebrides. Having used thousands of images over the years to illustrate these books, he knows a thing or two about what makes an image stand out from the crowd. Myles is delighted to be a part of the judging process and to publish the Bird Photographer of the Year book.
