I am a professional writer and photographer, based in London, but travel widely for work and pleasure. I freelance for a number of publications all over the world and have contributed to and written a number of books. Most notably, I am the author and principle photographer of the internationally bestselling Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die and Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die. In the course of the production for the latter title I caught 99 different flights in a little over 11 months, flying the equivalent of over 7 times around the world. My most recent title is the Footprint Travel Photography, and extensive guide to all that anyone would need to know about travel photography. In the course of my work I have visited almost 80 countries, Highlights have included spending almost two weeks in a tented ashram photographing the 2001 Maha Kumbh Mela (the largest gathering of humans ever on the planet) for Geographical Magazine, and circumnavigating five countries in Southern Africa in a beaten up Cessna plane.
