Frontier quick-quiz:

1. What has been your favourite location to shoot?

South Eastern Alaska is my favourite location. I love the wild lands and the wildlife that live there. Whales, eagles, bears, wolves, wild forests, awesome mountains and glaciers, it’s hard to beat!

2. What has been your favourite animal to photograph?
I don’t really have a favourite animal subject but I tend to favour the larger ones – maybe because their size, strength and the potential danger reinforces the power, beauty and wildness that nature provides when she is the one in control. Whales, wolves, bears… these subjects tend to make one humble. And humility is something we humans often need to be reminded of.

3. Which animal would you most like to photograph that you haven't already?
Tigers. I saw a tiger up close once in the jungle in India and it was a very humbling experience.

4. What are your 3 top tips to aspiring wildlife photographers?

  • First do your own thing, don’t try to copy the work of others. Find what it is you want to say and how you want to say it.
  • Second, decide on a portfolio topic and work with that until you have accomplished your goal.
  • Third, don’t give up. Photography can be challenging and frustrating. Keep at it – perseverance is the answer.
