Will first found his interest for wildlife as a young boy. He would take an old video recorder out on adventures to “document” local flora and fauna. This interest grew into a passion as he matured and he went on to study animal biology and conservation at Oxford Brookes. His dissertation on UK rodent species went on to be published in an Oxford zoological journal. He competed nationally and internationally while studying.
Lockdown 2020 – a turning point
After university and leaving elite sport, he struggled with lack of direction. Working at Jersey Zoo and the New Forest Wildlife Park helped to rekindle his love for conservation and the outdoors. He taught rowing and biology to teenagers in England and learnt to become a mountain leader in 2019. Lockdown in 2020 gave him the time and motivation to teach himself photography and videography and his Instagram stories encouraged others to get out into nature.
Will presented on the children’s app “Caper” which encouraged young children to get outside and explore. The Mammal Society used Will and his videos to discuss mental health and benefits of and active, outdoor lifestyle. He has become a regular photographer for newspapers including The Times, Telegraph and Daily Mail. Will’s kingfisher footage was used on BBC’s Springwatch in 2019.
Will has produced a number of promotional videos and content for charities; including the eco warriors of Gone West tree planting, and the habitat restoration work of Trees for Life.
He now lives in Scotland, teaching bushcraft and outdoor training to underprivileged children in the area. Alongside this job, he also continues to teach and encourage people about the outdoors and adventure through his website and social media where has has thousands of followers who tune in to see his adventures.
