Polly Ford is a photographer and filmmaker based in Cornwall. She is currently in her 2nd year at Falmouth University and studying BA Marine and Natural History Photography. She specialises in her interpretation of the natural world.
Polly’s journey into photography started when her family gave her a 35mm Canon SLR for 16th birthday. From then on, this propelled her on to pursue her dream of becoming a photographer.
She is also passionate autism advocate, she herself has Asperger Syndrome and shares the way she sees the world.
