I'm a professional freelance photographer and features writer covering subject areas as diverse as the inland waterways, sustainable boating, green energy and wildlife conservation. I cover sustainable boating, in particular, new technology to generate and store electrical power and to use that power to propel boats without polluting and, in doing so, damage the environment.
Although titled Phil Pickin Photography, the photographic aspect of my work is now greatly reduced other than to illustrate the environmental work I do.
Much of my photographic work is offered as stock photography exclusively by Alamy; I also carry out commercial commissions together with blog content and PR services for a number of commercial clients. A number of videos are available exclusively via Pond5.
Clients include Towpath Talk, Bird Watching, Waterways World, Metro.co.uk, The Daily Mail, SWNS, and the Canal and River Trust and proud to be working with the British Trust for Ornithology. The BBC has also used my work within its Countryfile program, The Ramblers Association, Vine House Farm, Drifters Waterways, and many others have also used my images.
I am also a member of the National Union of Journalists.
