Wildlife From Around The World
Nick Dale Photography
Shot I've taken of animals and birds while travelling through 25 countries on all seven continents
I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up later as a hobby – so that was that for 30 years!
I ended up reading English at Oxford and working as a strategy consultant for a few years before 'retiring' at the age of 29! I then travelled round the world for seven years, doing four ski seasons and working on an internet start-up in San Francisco, before finally returning to London in 2005. At that point, consulting work felt too stressful, so I decided to go 'quality of life', and I'm now a private tutor and wildlife photographer.
