Danny Beath

Danny Beath (1960-2013) was an award-winning British landscape and wildlife photographer and botanist. His most famous photos were photos of Scottish, Welsh and Shropshire flora and fauna, in particular butterflies and fungi. Danny also earned a PhD in Tropical ecology from the University of Aberdeen in 1993. He was diagnosed with autism at the age of four and was lucky because he had a very supportive family who helped him flourish and achieve his goals. He later became an advocate for autism. He died of a heart attack at 52. On the very day of his funeral he was announced as the winner of the Travel Photo of the Year competition.
