I see myself more of a naturalist with a camera than a wildlife photographer.
There has never really been a time in my life when nature did not utterly fascinate me so I knew a career with wildlife was what I wanted to do which lead me from my home county of Nottingham to Cornwall.
I studied in Falmouth for a BA (Hons) Marine & Natural History Photography.
I photograph the less-admired species, like reptiles, insects and fish and I regularly use specialist equipment for shoots from underwater cameras to trailcams. I have been awarded in both British Wildlife Photography Awards and Underwater Photographer of the Year.
Conservation has also been a focus to me. I frequently work for organisations like The Wildlife Trusts , WWF, Geenpeace and RSPB. This form of work includes conducting a range of surveys, recording sightings and photography.
I have worked on various BBC nature shows (Springwatch, Countryfile, The One Show and The Great British Year). I have also filmed for angling series Mr Crabtree Goes Fishing.
One of Jack's proudest acheivments is filming all 53 species of freshwater fish in Britain being the first person to do which took seven years to complete!
I enjoy teaching and I am frequently hired for presentations and private photo workshops.
I run courses on wildlife photography in collaboration with Nottingham Trent University.
I am also a part time lecturer for the MSc Biological Photography and Imaging at the University of Nottingham.
Jack has written two books for New Holland publishers "Freshwater Fishes of Britain" & "Field Guide to Pond & River Wildlife of Britain & Europe". He has written for many magazines including BBC Wildlife, Outdoor Photography, Diver and writes a regular column for Fallons Angler.
