Tracey is an International award-winning photographer from Hull that specialises in Wildlife. Her passion for wildlife has taken her around the world and there is nothing she loves doing more. This passion is easy to see through her images. She spends hours in the field and what some people don’t understand is that some feelings you get are priceless… “it is a true blessing to be able to take the time to sit and watch wildlife, let alone photograph it. There is no better feeling than having those magical moments that will probably never be repeated but stay with you forever”.  These are the moments that come back to her when looking at the images.
