Simon Hird

Simon is a freelance Photographer and Filmmaker based in Devon, UK. With a passion for adventuring to wild and remote destinations, Simon’s photos and stories hope to encourage others to get out and explore the wilderness around them. Simon’s background in Geography (BSc) and Marine Science (MSc) allows him to integrate valuable knowledge and educational aspects into his work, providing an insightful and unique approach within the field.

Simon has built a modest following of over 6,000 on instagram who actively engage with his open and personal narratives. Having spent just over a year working part-time within the industry alongside his studies, Simon is very much at the beginning of his career but has already worked with a number of leading British brands including Berghaus, Ford UK, Firepot Food and Montane. Simon also takes on weddings, engagement shoots and personal commissions. With the completion of his Masters in Applied Marine Science at the University of Plymouth in September 2019, Simon has now gone full-time as a photographer.
