I am a wildlife writer and photographer based in the UK. During my degree in BA (Hons) Wildlife Media, I was keen to promote local wildlife organisations and encourage greater involvement in nature. Alongside my studies I produced work for the Woodland Trust, youth nature network ‘A Focus on Nature’ and New Nature magazine, and I interned at BBC Wildlife magazine and Student and Graduate Publishing. I also spent a year documenting wildlife expeditions across the UK as the Creative Content Developer intern at Wild Intrigue. From 2017 to 2019 I was a volunteer columnist for the Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s Nature Column, which is published in the Cumberland News. I am now a contributor to Blue Sky Wildlife and Wild Intrigue. My published articles can be viewed on the Writing tab.
On The Wing is a blog I launched in 2015 to document my travels and share my photography. My posts are aimed at those with an existing knowledge of wildlife as well as newcomers to nature, to inspire others to protect wildlife for future generations. As a young woman often travelling alone, I am passionate about encouraging other women to pursue their travel aspirations with confidence.
In September 2019 I began a low residency MA in Travel and Nature Writing at Bath Spa University, where I will continue to develop my portfolio of writing, photography and art.

Passionate, motivated and wonderfully creative, Rebecca captures moments of intrigue, beauty and importance during our Expeditions, which could otherwise be easily missed and forgotten. It’s an honour to have her enthusiastically create informative, articulate and inspiring written pieces for us from her journals, and these have been greatly received by our followers.”

“When Rebecca first contacted me about making a short documentary on Eskrigg Nature Reserve I was immediately impressed by her professionalism. The filming was of a very high standard and the film sequences she chose were all pertinent to the narrative, of a sensible duration and sufficiently varied to cover the subject whilst maintaining the viewer’s interest and attention. The transitions were natural and smooth and the editing was seamless. This was a very professional production.”
