ABOUT

Hello, I’m Rebecca.

I’m a wildlife writer and photographer based in northeast Scotland.

I like to stay positive in my writing to encourage more people to learn about their local wildlife and be inspired to protect it. As a photographer I specialise in colourful portraits of British birds and mammals.

I create accessible wildlife content that bridges the communication gap between experts and the general public. During my time with non-profit group SEZARC in Florida I transformed scientific reports into accessible material for the general public. I also enjoy designing newsletters and magazines using Adobe InDesign.

My work has been featured in publications including BBC Wildlife and Oceanographic. I am currently the Digital Content Creator for Opticron and I have just been commissioned by Bradt Travel Guides to write a Slow Travel Guide to Northeast Scotland, which will be published in 2023.

If you have an idea for a writing or photography project, I’d love to hear from you.

Writing Workshop Participant, Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival 2021

“Rebecca’s gentle, encouraging, calm manner put me instantly at ease and I felt no pressure to be a particular way. How she guided us through the forest and exercises was also gentle and nurturing . It was a very soothing experience which helped me see how nature could inspire my writing. The course even inspired an episode on my Big Juicy Creative podcast!
