Post university Kevin, spent a few months traveling across British Columbia, Canada. It was during this time that the beauty of the Canadian wilderness and it's wildlife inspired him to first pick up a camera.  Watching wildlife has always been one of Kevin's biggest passion and this was apparent from a young kid growing up, he could always be found searching the rock pools on the local beaches for signs of life or exploring the woodlands. So it was only logical when Kevin got into photography later in life he continued this passion, but with a camera in hand to document what he saw.

With Kevin wildlife always comes first before any shutter is clicked, he is passionate about conservation. The well being
every subject s is carefully considered before any photograph is taken, no image should be put ahead of the subject’s welfare. This rule should apply for every wildlife photographer, whether just starting out or professional. Wildlife photography has an important role to play in conservation, and our imagery can help connect the public to the environmental issues that are affecting wildlife in the world today. 

At its heart, wildlife photography is a pastime that anybody can enjoy. If you are looking to get into wildlife photography, the best bit of advice is to get out and explore your local area. Britain’s best wildlife can be found right on your own front door. Expensive equipment helps to improve your photography but is no substitute for excellent field craft and understanding your subject. Working closely with one of your favourite local subjects is a great way to build up a strong portfolio. If at first things aren’t going your way, stick at it, wildlife photography can be incredibly frustrating and a lot of patience and commitment is needed to get the shots you’re after. When everything comes together for the perfect moment it makes all the early morning rises and waiting worthwhile. 

Kevin works closely with the Marine Conservation Society and for each puffin print sold Kevin donates 25% of the profits to this supported charity.  The MCS are the voice for everyone who loves the sea. Their aims are to secure a future for our living seas, and to save our threatened marine wildlife before it is lost forever.  Purchasing a print is a great way for you to own one of these beautiful images whilst also helping to protect the oceans that support the Atlantic Puffins.
