My name is Jack Burton: I am 21 years old and based in Falmouth (Cornwall). I am an absolute wildlife enthusiast and an aspiring photographer/filmmaker/conservationist. I'm currently in my 3rd year studying a BA in Marine and Natural History Photography at Falmouth University.
I have been photographing and filming wildlife for over eight years, actively engaging with the environment in any aspect I can. I've seen some truly inspiring spectacles, and I hope to continue spending the rest of my life pursuing my passion for photography, conservation and exploring nature.
To aid my practical abilities, I spend my spare time climbing, scuba diving, mountaineering, writing and aiding practical conservation work. As a keen birder, I am a qualified trainee bird ringer - a past-time I often enjoy when I'm not at university.
As part of a research team, I was the official conservation photographer and head of social media on a 7-week expedition to the cloud forest of Costa Rica in summer 2017.
For the duration of my time at university, I have been a photo editor for an acclaimed bio-science magazine called 'Life Nature Magazine'. This role entailed writing articles and providing photographs for the various features myself.
I have extensive involvement in the commercial industry of photography: with experience working at weddings, studios and adventure apparel - I work as the official photographer for The House of Bean - Adventure Apparel.
My images have won regional photographic competitions in the North-East of England
A film I produced solely myself was shortlisted at the Wild Film Festival film competition in Falmouth
My photographs and written work has been exhibited on Expedition Basecamp
