Mark Hamblin

Born in 1966, I was brought up in Warwickshire where I first developed my passion for nature and photography. Despite an early ambition to become a television cameraman, I headed north to study Microbiology at Sheffield University. Seven years later I emerged from the ivory towers with a BSc and PhD but my true ambitions lay elsewhere. After running a catering business for two years I finally took the plunge and have been working as a freelance photographer since 1995. After eighteen enjoyable years living on the edge of the Peak District National Park, Gale and I moved to the Scottish Highlands in the autumn of 2002. We have since renovated an old farmhouse and acquired a hyper-active springer spaniel who gives me a great excuse to explore the local woods most days.
