Kiri is a photographer and nature writer living in mid Norfolk. She was born in East Anglia in 1975. She grew up on the Essex coast spending a lot of time in local nature reserves, much of it in wellies pond-dipping in the rain and exploring the natural beauty of the region’s beautiful countryside which has become her inspiration. She also frequently visited the north Norfolk coastline which remains one of her favourite places to this day.

Her longstanding passion for nature and wildlife was reawakened when she moved to a small South Oxfordshire village near the historic Ridgeway national trail. Her innate artistic streak emerged when she discovered digital photography after receiving a Canon DSLR as a birthday present from her husband. Digital photography proved to be the perfect outlet for her creativity and she has been combining her love of the natural world with a passion for photography ever since.

Artistically, Kiri’s work blends a love of colour and form with a fascination for the little details captured by close-up and macro photography to evoke the beauty of the natural world around us. Many of her images are photographed in local countrside lanes footpaths and nature reserves near to where she lives. She has also travelled further afield, most notably visiting Finland to photograph European grey wolves and brown bears in the wild.

Kiri returned to East Anglia in 2012 and settled in the Mid Norfolk, where she continues to explore the everyday beauty of the landscape and natural world all around us through photography. Kiri is passionate about conservation, strongly believes that the welfare and interests of any animal come first; in her spare time she is an advocate of dog rescue and rehoming.


Kiri’s Kit

When out and about with my camera and lenses I am often asked what photography equipment I use. Two old adages hold true for me; the most important piece of kit is first and foremost “the photographers eye” and much can be achieved with modest equipment used within its constraints, especially with today’s technological advances.

Truest of all is the saying that “the best camera is the one you have with you” when the opportunity suddenly appears and you really need it! Rare is the photographer who doesn’t have at least one tale to tell of “the image that got away”.
