Elyse Rebecca Townsend 
Elyse (born in 1995) is a Nature and Wildlife photographer, having graduated in 2023 from the University of Gloucestershire with a Masters Degree in Photography. She first became interested in photography when she was 14, inspired by outdoor photography magazines and documentaries. 
Elyse spends much of her time walking and traveling, enjoying photographing large landscape sceneries to detailed macro images, aiming to remind people of the beauty in nature that can be overlooked. Elyse sees photography as a means to archive nature in some areas that could potentially be under threat by modern living and technology.
