Sharks. Photography. Puns.
Thanks for stopping by! I’m a co-founder and whale shark researcher at the Marine Megafauna Foundation, and an irredeemable wildlife geek at Nature Tripper. I use this site (and my newsletter) to share my latest work… and dad jokes.
November 2019: I’m currently on Mafia Island in Tanzania working on whale sharks with Chris Rohner. I’ve created a new section here on the site, Field Notes, to share regular updates on what we’re up to! You can learn more, and support this work, on Patreon.
Notes from the field:
Short posts, photos, and random observations:
I’m working on lots of articles for Nature Tripper at the moment. Here are some links to my latest features:
I spent July working as a Photographer in Residence for G Adventures on their Arctic expedition ship. We had some amazing wildlife encounters, including polar bears, blue whales, and walrus. My updated Arctic photo gallery is here.
After that, I flew over to the Galapagos in August for a wildlife trip and dive liveaboard for Aqua-Firma, then joined a research cruise with the Galapagos Whale Shark Project. We identified 33 whale sharks and got a bunch of tagging done. See my Galapagos collection here.

Like geeky animal facts and dad jokes?
I write a few articles just for my mailing list. They normally focus on something interesting, and possibly hilarious, that I've learnt about sharks (or other random animals) that week. There may also be groan-inducing jokes.
Real talk: there will be groan-inducing jokes.
