I’m so thrilled and humbled to have been profiled in Your Weekend Magazine in New Zealand and to have had my image of the mournful female gorilla in Rwanda featured on the cover!

I tend to use the Phototoaster app to sharpen, crop and add certain colour elements to my shots.[…]
My black and white image of pier jumpers at the Oyster Festival in picturesque Whitstable was named as a finalist alongside eight other photographs in the Daily Telegraph’s weekly travel competition The Big Picture in August 2016. This was one of those lucky shots where everything played out perfectly. I remember seeing people jumping off the pier during the first day of the festival.
