About Me

From South Africa to Shetland Islands – 60 Degrees North

 

From an early age, I have always enjoyed taking photographs. I have always carried a camera with me, be it on holiday or just popping out for a drive to visit friends. 15 years ago I came to live in Shetland. During this time opportunities have arisen that have allowed me to develop my interest in photography further. 

I started to appreciate Shetland through the lens, and soon realised that this was a special place I had come to live in. The one aspect that gripped me first was the wildlife. I spent many many hours discovering places, watching birds and animals so I could try and understand their behaviours better.

I found a lot of enjoyment just taking friends and family around the islands when they came to visit. This got me thinking more about being a guide on the Islands.


I qualified as a guide in 2018 and I now enjoy guiding visitors to the best places to watch wildlife and experience the best that Shetland has to offer. During my Tourist Guiding Training, I realised Shetland has many more places and aspects to explore, so, being able to share my newfound passion and knowledge about our islands is extremely rewarding.
