About Us

Animal and wildlife photographer Toni Cross photographs Highland Cows, wildlife, sheep and cattle, and wild horses all over the world. 

Toni has owned a camera since the age of eight, and has been attempting to photograph animals ever since. Starting with zoo animals, local wildlife and ponies at her local riding school she developed her initial skills with black and white film and a home developing studio.

After running a woodcraft business with her ex husband for some years, she completed a wildlife conservation degree in 2000 and worked for the RSPB and marine charity ORCA as well as lecturing in conservation. She eventually became a full time photographer in 2008, after a long stint travelling and photographing in Australia.

Toni divides her time between East Yorkshire, the Norfolk Brecklands and her Australian family on the other side of the world, and travels extensively, capturing new animal images each year, usually in the company of bird scientist and fellow photographer Neil Calbrade.

Our Licky Cow Gallery range of prints, gifts and calendars sells all over the world and is based purely on Toni's images. Most items are made in our East Yorkshire workshops.
