Victoria Stanley Tsui

I’m Victoria or Tory for short, one half of the journecology duo with a real penchant for documenting exploration and wildlife through film, photography and travel writing.


My trajectory has always been research; whether handling hominin specimens, scanning fossil vertebrates, researching dolphin cognition or sequencing malarial resistance genes. Yet despite the joy of trawling through hundreds of academic papers and drinking copious amounts of coffee, I have forged another path which allows me to use my research skills in a way that is engaging and accessible.

Over the last year I have spent time as a freelance writer, photographer and videographer, travelling the globe producing content for various sustainable travel organisations, ecological initiatives and academic institutions. My goal is to use multimedia, storytelling and scientific knowledge to talk about what is both important and exciting. I am particularly fond of the outdoors and wildlife, but will never say no to an impromptu travel adventure!


I started journecology with my partner and colleague Matt in the early months of 2017 as a platform to share and discuss matters at heart. So far, we have captured aerial footage of the elusive Chinese White Dolphin, gone undercover to film Shark Fin suppliers and traipsed across the diverse South American continent in search of some incredible scenery.

Aside from these endeavours, I enjoy eating vegan food, doing some art, and living out of a backpack. If you want to know more you can find me on most social media sites, or just keep your distance by scrolling through my portfolio on the side (desktop browser only sadly). Alternatively, drop me an e-mail.
