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.
October 2019: I’m currently in New Zealand working on a scientific book about whale sharks (I’m co-editing with Dr Al Dove). Madeleine and I have been busily working on our new wildlife travel & photography site, Nature Tripper.
I’ve written up several new articles: fun facts about whale sharks, a diver’s guide to whale sharks in the Galapagos, and a photo feature from our recent scuba diving liveaboard trip through that amazing archipelago.

I’m working on lots of content for Nature Tripper at the moment! I’ll add those links below…
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.
