Tom Pepper purchased his first SLR camera, a Nikon D90, in 2009. This became a trusty companion, and accompanied him on any travels. An interest in landscape and wildlife photography quickly developed, and suitcase-room for clothes reduced as he acquired additional lenses and an underwater housing. These days he enjoys living in and photographing the sights of London, as well as cityscapes and wildlife further afield whenever possible. He was named student Urban Photographer of the Year, 2013, and also won the 'New Talent' category of Travel Photographer of the Year in 2013.
