UK-based lighting camera operator and drone pilot, specializing in natural history, human interest filmmaking and presenter-led.
With over 6 years of experience creating content for the BBC, Channel 4, Vice, paramount +, ARTE, Attitude magazine, and much more, here in the UK but also in some of the most difficult and remote environments on the planet.
After studying documentary film at university I solo hitchhike from Wales to Hong Kong photographing my journey, finding a love for travel and exploration I joined the adventurists and lonely planet filming a TV series documenting teams adventuring across the planet for 3 years.
Since then I have been shooting TV productions all over the world.
I have expertise shooting in arctic, jungle, desert, and high-altitude environments, as well as some conflict work. I shoot presenter-led and observational documentaries as well as natural history, with good working knowledge and experience capturing wildlife behavior, and working with large predators in remote locations all over the planet.
I have recently finished shooting a BBC EARTH series about snow leopards and also finished a shoot working in one of the most remote areas of the Amazon jungle, filming both presenter lead and natural history sequences. I've also recently finished shooting for a prime-time BBC1 documentary following the lives of trawlermen in the UK.
I have experience tracking and locating snow leopards, jaguars, and other large mountain and jungle predators, as well as an excellent knowledge of British wildlife behavior.
I am the co-founder of Wild Expeditions and run expeditions to spot snow leopards in Kyrgyzstan and jaguars in Guyana. www.wildexpeditions.info.
As a drone pilot, I have over 100 hours of flight time using both the Mavic 2 and DJI INSPIRE 2 as a solo operator.
