David is a rare beast; an old-school naturalist with a way with animals, and people. If it lives and breathes anywhere near his local patch, he probably knows where it is and the best way to get you in front of it.Chris Howard
Not only is he a genius photographer, he is an inspiration for everyone who hears his story and sees his incredible wildlife photography. He is obviously very passionate about his work and a great collaborator. Working with David is a blast!Felix Julian Koch
Whether at home in the UK or on assignment abroad, I often rely on the support of extremely knowledgeable naturalists in order to get close to my subject. David is such a person and more: a true outdoors-man of the old-school ethos, his exceptional knowledge of nature has been accrued the way it should be - from years of experience and via untold hours spent in the field. There are no shortcuts to this high level of expertise and David is the real deal. What's more, he's a truly inspirational guy and a delight to work alongside.James Aldred
