About Me

I am a specialist wildlife cameraman and Director of Photography, working in natural history, science and adventure films. This has taken me to hundreds of locations in more than 50 countries. I started as a trainee with the BBC Natural History Unit in 1995,  went freelance in 1998, and continue to work for the BBC and various independents. Like all wildlife camera people these days, I am award-winning.

My experience includes lighting in the studio and on location, as well as sync and actuality filming.  My technical specialities are long lens animal behaviour, extreme macro, time lapse, motion control, IR and low light, high speed cameras for slow motion, stabilised camera support systems, special effects and graphics work, etc. I am accustomed to working in dangerous and extreme environments.

I hold a full driving licence and am reasonably hygienic.

GREVY'S ZEBRA


This is a long-lens behaviour sequence from 'Africa', made by the BBC Natural History Unit. It was filmed in the Samburu region of Northern Kenya. 

WILD PIGS


Another long-lens behaviour sequence from 'Wonders of the Monsoon', made by the BBC Natural History Unit. It was filmed in Sarawak, Malaysia.

 

SILVER ANTS


This is mainly a macro and slow motion behaviour sequence, from the 'Africa' series. It was filmed in Egypt.

MAKING OF SILVER ANTS


One of those 'behind the scenes' bits about how we filmed the silver ants sequence. It was mainly filmed by Felicity Lanchester but it's mildly entertaining and contains a few of my ant shots that didn't make it in to the main sequence.
