Rebecca Gibson is a wildlife writer and photographer based in Hertfordshire. She moved to Carlisle in 2015 to study a BA in Wildlife Media, which gave 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 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.
Rebecca has just returned from an internship in Florida, where she spent two months working with the South East Zoo Alliance for Reproduction and Conservation (SEZARC). During her time there, Rebecca had the chance to contribute to wildlife conservation first-hand. One of her main roles was translating technical journal reports from SEZARC projects into concise articles that the public could engage with. Rebecca strongly believes in making science and conservation accessible to all, and loved the opportunity to share her passion for SEZARC’s work with the public.

“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.”
