Roys background as a biologist and his passion for wildlife makes him well suited to host photographic expeditions to remote destinations. His knowledge will be useful both from a photographers point of view to interpret and anticipate the behavior of wildlife subjects, but also from a guide point of view.
For Roy photography is about sharing, either through his images or as a host in the field.
