ABOUT

I am a 30 year old wildlife film-maker based out of Bristol in the UK. I research, direct, produce and shoot on location. 

My dream is to share my love of the natural world with others and, if possible, inspire more people to go and explore this incredible planet for themselves.  Now more than ever the world is in need of a helping hand, but we have never been more equipped to do so! 

 

Growing up in the woodlands of the New Forest, I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain. This is where my love affair with the UK's largest land mammal began.... the red deer! But the more I film around the world, the more I realise the importance of natural history documentaries. In our living rooms and in the palms of our hands, we have windows to see parts of the world which are inaccessible to most people.

I studied Zoology at University but didn't pick up a camera until I was 22. From the second I started taking photos I was hooked and I have been photographing and filming the natural world ever since. 

I have been lucky enough to work  on landmark series such as Netflix: Night on Earth,   Global BBC series such as; Big Cats, Natural World, Big Blue Live, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch. 

 

If I can bring a thimble full of the wonder that I feel every time I step outdoors to the people who are watching, reading or listening to my stories, then that is enough for me.
