I am 18 years old and a self-taught wildlife photographer. I have been taking photographs since September 2007, and I live in Haydon Bridge in Northumberland. I hope to study zoology at Bristol university, and I aspire to be a broadcasting naturalist, following in the footsteps of Sir David Attenborough and Steve Backshall.
