Fergus originally trained as a Marine Biologist and has ongoing research in the field. It was through his marine work that his passion for photography first developed and he has been Highly Commended in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his underwater photography.

He has written two books on drone photography and filming: Drone Photography and Video Masterclass (Ammonite Press) and Masters of Drone Photography (Ammonite Press-Contributing Editor) Fergus is currently on the judging panel for the Outdoor Photographer of the Year and a regular writer for Outdoor Photography magazine.
