Kirk Purnell moved to Draycott from Bristol three years ago.  His job is Director of Teaching and Learning Assessment based at Wiltshire College.

During the first lock down and with a space for his own personal learning, an extraordinary skill came to his consciousness which he had been totally unaware of.  Inspired by a photographer friend who introduced Kirk to the minute detail and delight of wildlife nearby his home, he used his savings to invest in a good camera and his new life journey began.

Suddenly the world of flora and fauna looked totally new to Kirk.  However, the fact he was an instinctively gifted photographer came as an even bigger surprise.  His talents have been spotted by the media and he enjoys a large following on Instagram.  #photogra_pea

Who knows what his future holds?
