Gillian Thompson

My name is Gillian, im 29 years old from Birmingham, England. In a nutshell, im a perfectionist, an obsessive traveller and my camera is like a permanent extension of my arm.

I got into photography at a very young age and i guess it stuck with me! My main focus is macro - mostly of butterflies which coincides nicely with my regular volunteer work for Butterfly Conservation. Butterfly photography can be a real challenge at times but its a lot of fun too. By getting up close and personal with these beautiful creatures, you come to realise that they all have their own unique characteristics and habits, much like we do. They're usually quite amusing too!

I also love landscape photography but have never really had the time to actually persue this. Another area of photography i would like to learn more about is astrophotography and nightscapes. Having studied astrophysics at university, i find the stars, planets, deep space etc completely fascinating. Im hoping to hone my technique for starscapes in the near future.
