About Sue Scott

Sue Scott trained in marine biology at the University of Bangor, before going to work with the Field Studies Council and then the Marine Nature Conservation Review team of the Nature Conservancy Council.

She left the NCC in 1988, and has been freelance ever since (apart from a brief period working with the Marine Conservation Society) as a photographer and marine biologist. She was written for, and provided photographs to, a wide variety of publications. She provides a monthly photfeature on 'British Beasts' for DIVE Magazine.

Recent publications include contributions to the Dorling Kindersley book Oceans: The World's Last Wilderness Revealed, while she also co-wrote and -photographed Walk & Eat: Cape Town with husband Michael.  Both are available from Amazon (see the right-hand column).

She was also proud to contribute a photograph to the recent British Post Office "Sealife" stamp set (above ~ the common sunstar, bottom right).

In 2004, she visited the South Atlantic island of Tristan da Cunha for the first time. She became the first marine biologist to dive around the island's shores, discovering many features that had not been recognised by previous boat-based surveys. She is currently working on a project on the marine biodiversity of Tristan and the adjoining islands of Nightingale and Inaccessible, funded by the Darwin Initiative.

See her photofeatures on the island of Tristan da Cunha, and its underwater life on these pages.


Please contact Sue for more information about her services, or if you want to source photos for any publications (including websites).
