Wildlife Researcher and Photographer

Victoria studied Zoology with Marine Zoology at the University of Wales, Bangor before going on to study for an MSc in Wildlife Biology and Conservation at Edinburgh Napier University. 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 both her scientific and photographic skills specialising in macro photography championing the smaller species we have around us. Victoria is a Manfrotto Ambassador and has contributed stills, video and articles to magazines, books and TV series including National Geographic and The BBC, with awards in various competitions.

Victoria has recently published her first book Forgotten Little Creatures celebrating local wildlife through bringing together photography with scientific and historical facts. 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 and ethical when photographing nature.
