Hello, I’m Rebecca.
I’m an outdoor writer and photographer specialising in Scottish wildlife. I create positive, accessible content that bridges the communication gap between experts and the general public, encouraging more people to be inspired by the natural world.
My writing and photography have been featured in publications including BBC Wildlife, Oceanographic, Hertfordshire Life and The Cumberland News. I have also written and designed annual reports, interactive journals and newsletters for a range of clients.
I am the Digital Content Creator for Opticron and I am currently writing a Slow Travel Guide to Northeast Scotland, which will be published by Bradt Travel Guides in April 2023.
If you have an idea for a writing, photography or design project, I’d love to hear from you.
“My Mum loved her birthday gift. The photographs are stunning as is the design detail of the calendar. Rebecca made special effort to make sure it arrived in good time around some postal issues and I felt very taken care of! 10/10.”

Freelance Nature Writer
“I commissioned Rebecca to design and produce an activity book I was self publishing. I was extremely grateful for her effective project management, fabulous design skills and professionalism, which meant the project ran very smoothly. I’m delighted with the resulting product and would strongly recommend her skills to others.”

Writing Workshop Participant, Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival
“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!“
