Meet the Young BPOTY judges - Freya Coursey
I am a 23 year-old, self-taught wildlife photographer from Aberdeenshire, currently based in Glasgow. My passion for all things wild began at a young age, but photography helped to develop that interest by teaching me to look closer a the natural world. I have a Bachelors degree in Zoology, and am now studying for a Master of Research in Ecology, focusing on the biology of tawny owls. Although my research keeps me busy, photography provides a welcome break from studying. I tend to avoid using photography hides, and prefer taking walks and photographing what I encounter. I enjoys the connection found in photographs when the subject is aware of the photographer's presence.
Below Freya shares some of her own photography.
