"Working with reality to make it look better"

Here are a selection of films from the diverse projects i’ve had the privilege to be involved in. Documentary filmmaking is often spontaneous, demanding physically but always highly rewarding.

New Lives in the Wild has now completed production on it’s sixth series and I’m pleased to be able to present clips from the 3 episodes that I filmed in series 5. I travelled to Mongolia, Morocco and Canada. The sixth series will start transmitting in the autumn of 2017, I filmed 4 episodes in this series and travelled to Egypt, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.

I’m pleased to be able to showcase my work on “The Great African Migration” a 4 x 1 hour documentary series produced by Renegade Pictures for Five and BBC Worldwide. The series follows the Wildebeest Migration across the African plains. I was responsible for the Wildlife Filming, Time-lapse and Landscape filming for the whole series. For more information visit my Projects page.

There are six additional films taken from the series 1 – 4 of Ben Fogle “New Lives in the Wild”. This exciting prime time show has taken me to many remote locations around the globe, these include the Australian Outback, Mongolia, Indian Himalayas, The Georgian swamplands, Texan Desert, Panama, Canada, Morocco, Laos and to the wilds of Alaska. The wildlife theme continues with an ITV Christmas special  “Chris Tarrant in the Land of the Polar Bear” Chris visits Svalbard in Northern Norway to relive his childhood dream to see a Polar Bear in its natural environment. Also included are two documentaries on endangered Gibbons in Vietnam and the Dolphin Research Centre in the Florida Keys. Finally, I choose clips from a hard-hitting series on Death row in Texas.

I’m one of the few Directors of Photography to have worked with the complex 3D medium accumulating in over 15 hours transmission time. I’ve recently completed four 1 hour 3D documentaries for Sky and Discovery on World War 1 presented by Sir Tony Robinson. The clips shown are taken from the series transmitted in 2D on Discovery. Following on from the success of World War 1 3D Discovery commissioned World War 2 “Victory in Europe” to commemorate the 70th anniversary of VE day.
