Nick Dale Photography - the United Kingdom
I wanted to be a photographer when I was 15, but my mother said I could always take it up later – so that was that for 30 years!
I ended up reading English at Oxford and working as a strategy consultant before retiring at 29. I then travelled the world for seven years – skiing and playing golf – before returning to London in 2005. At that point, consulting work felt too stressful, so I decided to go ‘quality of life’. I’m now a private tutor and international award-winning wildlife photographer.
