Alison Thompson

Sheffield, United Kingdom

I am a professional freelance writer and photographer, with wide ranging subject knowledge, including travel, the natural world, food, lifestyle and general interest topics.

Previous experience includes feature writing for a range of magazines, producing optimised content and reviews for web sites and working with business clients, to write technical and marketing copy.

Clients have included consumer magazines, business journals and web sites, UK public sector organisations and educational establishments.

Based in the UK in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, I am available to undertake research interviews to inform articles and I have plenty of interviewing experience, having conducted both one to one interviews and focus group research.

Images can often be provided in tandem with articles and can also be provided independently from stock if required.

I have a passion for travel and nature and enjoy walking, skiing and scuba diving. I love cooking and presently work an allotment to grow my own organic fruit and vegetables.

If you think I may be able to help you with a writing or photography project, please contact me via
