I first started taking photos of wildlife when I was about 12, my aunt has always been interested in the subject and she got me into photographing wildlife in her garden.
The hare picture in this series is one of my favourite images - it's from back in 2012, and I lay on the edge of the fen for many days before I could get the shot I wanted. I love photographing any wildlife, and I think it's a real privilege to get close to animals in their own environment. Quite often I don't even pick up my camera, I just absorb the experience.
I mostly visit the following Wildlife Trust reserves, as they're all very local to me: The Great Fen, Woodwalton Fen, Upwood Meadows, Raveley Wood, Woodwalton Marsh, Gamsey Wood and Wistow Wood. Occasionally, I will travel further afield, if I'm looking for a particular subject that I can't find locally. I think it's important to work close to home, so you can learn what times of year are good for certain subjects and locate particular areas where that wildlife could be found.
