Burntmoon is a photographer based on the North east coast. Having discovered a passion for photography as a teenager it has remained a natural creative outlet in all aspects of their life ever since.
Having always had a connection with nature and the natural world, this led to the completion of a degree in Ecology at the University of London. During this time Burntmoon developed a love for, and indeed the patience for wildlife photography. This was born from a desire to show people the beauty, light and colour in the wildlife and nature around them.
A natural love of the outdoors led initially to a career as an ecologist and later as an outdoor pursuits instructor and expedition leader. All of which have provided a vast range of photographic opportunities.
During the 90’s Burntmoon expanded his horizons by travelling the world, which provided an amazing opportunity to expand his creativity by photographing different cultures, stunning vistas and exotic wildlife. Originally a film and darkroom photographer the transition to digital was a natural one allowing for much scope for experimentation and artistic development.
Now working in education, the knowledge and experience developed over the many years is being shared with others, promoting and nurturing a passion and enthusiasm for photography in adults and young people alike.
The current work of Burntmoon shows not only a wealth of experience but also the continual development of a lifelong creative process. His photographs show the beauty of the world around us, as well images that live and lurk in our imagination; both radiant and dark.
