Herring Gull’s rural-to-urban migration

An extensive rural-to-urban migration of the Herring Gull (Larus Argentatus) has taken place since the 1970’s. This has been largely due to human activity and the plundering of the seas by commercial fishing practices. According to a Food and Agriculture Organization estimate, over 70% of the world’s fish species are either fully exploited or depleted. Herring Gull’s are opportunistic feeders and would traditionally forage around the seashore cleaning up the fish and shellfish debris. Urban Gull expert Peter Rock from Bristol has conducted the most extensive longterm studies of urban gulls. He says that there are virtually no traditional rural colonies of Herring Gull left. This bird is an endangered species, classified as Red under the Birds of Conservation Concern 4: the Red List for Birds (2015)

My background is in Graphic Design with a BA in French and Fine Art at the University of Exeter. NCTJ (National Council for Training of Journalists). Working as a freelance press photographer I have been published in The Times, Daily Express, The Mirror amongst other national and local magazines & publications.

I undertake press and PR work and shoot a limited number of weddings a year as an international award-winning photographer.

My passion is nature and animals. I love photographing all aspects of animal life and the environment. My art background definitely influences the way I see and capture images. I love the quirky and unusual. I find that when I have a camera in my hand things just happen! I try not to prejudge or pre-plan a photo shoot. Instead I allow events to unfold in a photojournalistic style – to tell a story. The ‘Day in the life” photographic essays will attempt to show the love between humans and non-humans.

I am currently working on a personal photographic project which is about my love and passion for Gulls.
