Based in Leicestershire, UK. Danny became interested in Nature from a young age and was very rarely at home, always wandering the woods and rivers looking for wildlife.

My late Grandfather was a big influence in my childhood always showing me signs of nature and pointing out different aspects of life from habitats and seasons, day and night, he is sadly missed as I would have loved to have shared my many experiences and encounters with nature with him. Some 30 years on and I am still as restless and keen to learn more about the natural world to this day. All kinds of natural history are of interest from mammals, birds, insects and reptiles. I like the excitement of travelling to exotic locations but most of my work is achieved in the UK. My favourite destination in the UK is the Shetland Isles, if the weather conditions are right it is a wildlife photographer’s dream, with vast seabird Colonies and northern specialties there is always something to photograph. My images are widely published and are also represented by some of the leading Picture agencies in the country like RSPB Images, Naturepl and NHPA. I have been very lucky over the years to win a few awards for my photography which you can see in the awards section. I run a successful photography tour business with Mark Sisson called Natures Images which specialises in running tours in the UK and overseas. I have also joined forces with Mark Hancox to form a business called Nature Photography Hides. We specialise in hiring out our hides on a daily basis to photographic some of the most iconic species found in the UK.

I have had the great pleasure in being asked by Canon to be a part of their prestigious Ambassador Programme and I have been chosen to represent the field of nature photography as an explorer of light. This is a great honour as they have asked some of top professionals from different genres from the world of Sport, Fashion and Nature. Please click on the Canon Logo to follow this programme.
