About the Photographer


bio image Originally from the United Kingdom, Jacqueline has resided in the USA for most of her adult life and now makes northern California her home.   After many years in the corporate world, she took the leap into a full time photography career and has never looked back.  What began as a hobby is becoming not only an exciting way of life, but a dream come true.

Her professional background also emcompasses several years in Seattle, Washington in the travel and cruise line industries. Combined with a lifelong passion for wildlife, her love of exploring drives her to roam the globe in pursuit of nature’s wonders.

Jacqueline is currently a photography instructor at Filoli Estate in Woodside, California and "Photographer in Residence" with G Adventures, a tour company based in Toronto, Canada, where she provides lectures and guidance to guests on Arctic and Antarctic expedition tours.  In 2018, she will be joining UnCruise Adventures in Seattle, Washington as "Guest Host" on select photography theme cruises.
Jacqueline's images have been published and utilized by renowned wildlife organizations including Audubon California, The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory and The Wildlife Conservation Network.

Although her work has been exhibited and honored with accolades, her main interest lies in conservation and using her images to raise awareness and funds for those causes she feels most passionate about.

To avail of her services or license any of her images, please contact her directly via the contact page.
