Rebecca Gibson is a wildlife writer and photographer based in Carlisle, Cumbria. Born in Hertfordshire, she moved to Carlisle in 2015 to study a BA in Wildlife Media, which has given her the opportunity to photograph the stunning Lake District and develop her creative style.
She pays close attention to detail in her photography, using colour and texture to produce an image you can feel as well as see. Take a moment to look through the Gallery page, where you can browse macro images, landscapes and a range of British wildlife.
The opportunity to produce work for numerous organisations and publications including BBC Wildlife magazine, the Cumbria Wildlife Trust and New Nature magazine has allowed Rebecca to refine her writing. In a time when the environment is under immense threat, it is essential to capture the passion of more and more people, so Rebecca aims to appeal to newcomers to nature as well as wildlife enthusiasts in her writing. Her open and approachable style is her way of inspiring others to protect and preserve wildlife for future generations.
After completing her degree this year, Rebecca will continue her blog and work on producing longer, feature-length pieces to further develop her work. Despite her love for British wildlife, in particular birds and fungi, Rebecca aspires to travel to learn more about international wildlife and develop her photographic portfolio.

“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.”
