User Bio

Born and Bred in the town Ullapool in the North West Highlands of Scotland Will has been immersed in the outdoors his entire life. Will's Childhood was spent extensively exploring the many outdoor sports on offer ranging from whitewater and sea kayaking to sailing and even climbing the many local mountains. During his last year in Highschool Will found employment as a lifeguard as well as being a full-time deckhand on a local Tour boat. At age 18 Will embarked on a gap year to New Zealand which was spent extensively solo trekking the "Great walks" system amongst many other trails. It was during this time that a passion in photography was developed which continues to this day. During his travels in New Zealand Will also worked as a Dept. of Conservation Hut Warden on the volcanic Tongariro park. Now safely back in Scotland Will is currently a student at the University of Stirling and is studying a degree in Environmental Science and Outdoor education. Having endured the harsh highland weather working on a Fish farm in the North West, Will has managed to raise the funds to help support his next expedition which is to cross Iceland. If all goes well Will intends to become a professional photographer and/or mountain guide by the end of his degree.

Will is now working on a 6-7 month solo expedition to Sea kayak border to border around Scotland followed by summiting all 283 of Scotland's"Munros" (mountains over 3000ft)

Talks on Iceland and New Zealand are available on request, as are sales of prints/DVD videos
