I have had a lifelong passion for fieldsports after being introduced to shooting at a young age by my father. I regularly write for some of the leading shooting magazine titles including Shooting Times and Sporting Gun magazine. We cover a variety of subjects including shoot reports, pest control and my passion for wildfowling.
My career as a freelance journalist and photographer has allowed me to hone my skills in this particular area of work. As well as an interest in photography, I have always had a passion for film making, producing shooting films of different field sports. You can watch these on the video section of our website.
Until I met Tom, my experience in fieldsports was beating on a small family run shoot. I was looking into getting my very own puppy to train as a picking up dog. Hugo, my Black Labrador, arrived home and two months later I met Tom.
I was already a photographer specialising in landscape and lifestyle photography for a company based in Cumbria. I had recently gone freelance when Tom & I met, not much time passed and we decided instead of working separately we would work together and that is how Sykes Media started. I am now regularly out beating and shooting, mainly on muddy foreshores, always with my camera in my hand documenting the day.
