Cave photography calls for a varied range of skills, with stamina, endurance and an ability to operate in confined spaces near the top of the list. 

As it’s a subject many of us will be in the dark about, what could be better than taking a deep dive into the discipline from a leading practitioner?

With a love of being outdoors and travel, Davis also has a passion for exploration and visual storytelling. His photography covers various genres, including landscapes, portraits, wildlife, action and adventure.

Niall is the editor of Digital Camera Magazine, and has been shooting on interchangeable lens cameras for over 20 years, and on various point-and-shoot models for years before that. 

Working alongside professional photographers for many years as a jobbing journalist gave Niall the curiosity to also start working on the other side of the lens. These days his favored shooting subjects include wildlife, travel and street photography, and he also enjoys dabbling with studio still life.
