As well as 30 years experience as a travel writer, photographer and editor, I can offer you my expertise in family travel, wildlife travel and firsthand experience of a wide range of destinations. Most of all, however, I can offer you high-quality writing – the kind of writing, I hope, that could give your website some sparkle, or lift your brochure out of the ordinary.
Here's some background on my travel content and editing experience: I've been editor of the inspirational 101 Family Holidays website, Travel Africa magazine and the award-winning Kenya Airways inflight magazine, Msafiri.
My commercial experience covers all aspects of content creation, from managing large monthly magazines and writing blogs, web pages and e-newsletters to co-ordinating filming trips, undertaking product photography assignments and filming and editing professional videos.
Former roles have included Senior Content Editor for Discover the World and Head of Communications at the World Land Trust.
Below you will find details of some of the services I offer – as well as a list of some of the operators, websites and publications I've worked with. If you've got a specific project in mind that you think might fit my writing, editing or video production skills, I'd love to discuss it further with you.
TRAVEL CONTENT: LET'S WORK TOGETHER!
Website content Writing 50 great words is a lot harder than rattling out 500 average ones! If your landing pages are looking a little flabby, I can help with tightly-written, inspirational copy.
Travel and wildlife content Blogs can get tired. Give yours a makeover with imaginative round-ups, creative themes and the kinds of posts that will encourage your readers to come back for more.
Brochures and magazines Long live print! It's not dead, despite what some digital doom-mongerers might say! Let me help you justify the costs of magazine and brochure projects with some truly engaging copywriting.
Reviews and endorsements Expertise is the result of experience. The most vivid, compelling travel copy – or review – comes from the writer's ability to 'take you there'. Combine with effective CTAs and you're in business.
Words and pictures Sometimes a carefully chosen set of well-captioned photographs is all it takes to engage your audience. As an award-winning photographer, I can provide high-quality images.
