I was born, and have lived in Shetland all my life. In the last 5 years I have developed a keen interest in photography, in an attempt to capture and share some of the beauty of Shetland and it's wildife with you all. Otters, Seals, Gannets, Puffins are abundant, but also are the rarer treats such as Killer Whales, or Orcas, which occasionally hunt close to shore and provide spectacular viewing.

One of my photos, the 'Over The Shoulder Seal' recently achieved a 'Highly Commended' award in the 2012 British Wildlife Photography Awards, and will be featured in a touring exhibition. I also made it to the final rounds of the 2011 Veolia Wildlife Photography competition. I will have to try harder for 2013!

As well as the images displayed here, I have many more on www.flickr.com/crieffy should you wish to purchase any image displayed there please contact me and I shall add it here.
