Young, self-taught wildlife photographer, Rachel Bigsby, is starting to make a name for herself in photographic circles. Still only 26, and despite no yet turning pro, she’s already on the Nikon Creator programme and running her own workshops.
Rachel has had a passion for wildlife, and especially for birds, since a very young age. Photography has enabled her to capture what she sees and share that passion. She’s a good example of how drive is enabling a set-taught photographer to find a career pursuing what she loves most.
In conversation with Newton & Coe, she talks about her evolving career, her ambitions, her photography and the developing style which is leading her towards fine art imagery rather than simply documenting.
It’s a tough and competitive world for young and up-and-coming photographers, but already Rachel has done some work for television, including the BBC, and strong and growing social media following is giving visibility to her photography.
If you’re building a career in photography, or would like to, it may just give you some valuable inspiration so take a listen.
