"For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it." – Jacques-Yves Cousteau

William Fortescue is a land animals and nature photographer from the UK. He firmly believes we are born with an intrinsic love for nature, and feels extremely fortunate to be able to spend his life pursuing this love. He hopes to use images to evoke emotion, champion change and encourage positivity in the battle to protect our last wild places. He wants to create images that showcase what we stand to lose and why we should be doing all we can to protect it. At the moment, he is a partnered photographer for Saving The Wild and the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.
