About Sebastian Loram


Born in Devon in 1986, I have always been fascinated by the world that surrounds us.  As a child, my parents and grandparents would frequently take me out to places to watch the local birdlife, be it the local duck ponds or a nature reserve further afield.  I have always held a strong interest in the well being of our environment and as I grew up I developed an acute awareness of how fragile many of our most iconic ecosystems are.

Whilst always being a passionate conservationist and holding a huge love for the natural world, I only started taking photographs a few years ago when I left university and found myself with more spare time than I planned.  Now, I live in South Devon with my wife Marie, working on many local and international projects which has taken me to many special places around the world.

I also support the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and have travelled to visit their projects in Zambia and Zimbabwe.  I am pleased to be supporting their Education Advisor Andrew White, in developing a global conservation education programme aimed at bringing important issues to the forefront of the next generations thinking.

The most important and enjoyable part of getting close to wildlife is fieldcraft.  I have an excellent understanding of the species I photograph and combined with excellent, well thought out and sensitive fieldcraft allows me to obtain some interesting observations and photographs.  I have also advised and worked on locations in south Devon for the BBC Springwatch team.

I am heavily involved in the monitoring of Peregrine Falcons within Devon in addition to holding Schedule 1 licences to record the breeding of Barn Owls and Kingfishers.  I tweet regular updates and views from @sebloram.

Enjoy the outdoors, stop and look around occasionally, its amazing how much wildlife is all around us!
