DOCUMENTARY

New Lives in the Wild has now completed production on it’s sixth series and I’ve been involved with the series from the start. I’ve currently shot 17 x 1 hour programmes for the series working in some of the remotest locations around the globe. Filming the series involves working in extreme conditions from +50c in the Australian outback to working at -30c in the Mongolian winter. We’ve just started production on series 7 and the featured clip is taken from an episode filmed in outer Mongolia. Further clips are available to view below.

“The Great African Migration” a 4 x 1 hour documentary series following the Wildebeest Migration across the African plains. The series took a whole year to film and was made up of 5 filming blocks. Most of the filming took place in Tanzania with 1 filming block taking place in Kenya’s Masai Mara to film the dramatic river crossings.
The series was a combination of Natural History filming and Ben’s Journey, meeting the scientist’s, the local people and the local tribes as the migration crossed from Tanzania into Kenya. I was responsible for the Wildlife Filming, Time-lapse and Landscape filming for the whole series. For more information visit my Projects page.
