Guy has been a professional landscape, nature and travel photographer for over twenty years. His career began straight after graduating with a Degree in Photography from Salisbury College in England, following various courses studying nature conservation. His images are marketed by several leading photographic agencies including Getty Images and NaturePL. He also manages a library of over 250,000 images from his own office.

Guy's work has been published worldwide with clients that include: Outdoor Photography, Practical Photography, Digital Camera, Photo Plus, Digital SLR, Photography Monthly, Dorset Magazine, Dorset Life, Devon Life and Somerset Life magazines, Telegraph, Guardian, The Reader's Digest, David and Charles, AA Publishing, Canon, The Ordnance Survey and many card and calendar publishers around the world.

Although his main interest is photographing the wildlife and wild places of the British Isles, he takes many trips abroad each year.
Wherever he is working he likes to capture subjects in new ways, often working on new techniques in order to produce a unique image.
Living in South West England surrounded by a variety of beautiful landscapes and interesting habitats right on his doorstep, many of his most successful images have been taken within a few miles of home. Over the last decade he has increased the number of photographic workshops that he runs to around 35 each year, taking him and his clients to some of Europe's most spectacular landscape and wildlife locations.

Guy has always used Canon camera equipment, starting with an EOS650 back in the late eighties. He currently uses an EOS 5DSr as his main camera body for landscape photography and an EOS 1DX for all his natural history work, along with a variety of Canon lenses from 8mm to 600mm.

Guy lives in Dorset, England with his wife Cat, who often accompanies him on his photographic adventures around the world.
