Jellyfish images used online in the Telegraph and Guardian

Good to see my images of jellyfish being used in the Telegraph (12 August 2017) and Guardian (3 October 2017) via Alamy.


Snorkelling with grey seals at the Isles of Scilly

The Eastern Isles  are a group of small uninhabited islands within the Isles of Scilly. This summer I headed to the islands to go snorkelling with grey seals. The Eastern Isles hold one of the largest seal colonies in South West England. These seals are used to humans interacting with them in the water and are often very playful and curious. The seals around the Eastern Isles along with a small handful of other colonies in the UK (such as around Lundy Island, the Farne Islands and Skomer Island) are the only colonies in which such interactions with divers and snorkellers are a common occurrence. Very stormy weather has prevented me making the journey across on the Scillonian from Penzance earlier in the year. Anyone who has been on the boat previously will know this boat isn't much fun in a storm!

Finally, the bad weather settled and I was able to make the journey to the islands from the mainland. The experience was excellent and would really recommend visiting the islands. Unfortunately, visibility wasn't as good as it can be but nevertheless some of the seals ventured very close, allowing me to get some descent shots. In addition to the grey seals, lots of blue jellyfish were also present.

One of my Studland Bay long-snouted seahorse images was used at a life size scale in the August 2016 edition of Saga magazine! The article was a great piece all about protecting the marine environment!

Are jellyfish going to take over the oceans?

Pleased to see my split level image below which was taken at the stunning Kynance Cove, Cornwall used in an interesting article about global increases in jellyfish in our seas. Check it out at:
