October 29th, 2014

It’s been a while since my last news, there have been a couple of trips in rapid succession, and the series that I spent much of the last couple of years working on, Life Story, has begun to be broadcast on BBC1. I had a lovely trip back to Alaska – this time it really […] Read more »
Japan

Japan

August 8th, 2014

I love Japan, and it was great to be back to see old friends, old haunts, and, quite probably, some of the same macaques I filmed 7 years ago. An extremely enjoyable shoot with a very lovely team, here is evidence that some work was done:       Read more »
Farewell Alaska, Hello Japan

Farewell Alaska, Hello Japan

July 19th, 2014

My last shoot for the BBC’s Alaska series is done. All went pretty well; two weeks up in the Arctic then a final few days charging around filming various scenics and wildflowers. The time up in the arctic, based at the fantastic Toolik Field station, was great. We were continuing the Arctic Ground Squirrel sequence […] Read more »

Wild horses & bees

June 3rd, 2014

Just home from a very lovely trip to North Carolina filming for the BBC Natural History Unit’s series about the Atlantic. The focus of the shoot was the wild horses that live on the Outer Banks – a chain of barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina and Virginia. The origin of the horses […] Read more »

I’m packed up and ready to head back to Alaska to carry on filming for the BBC’s 3 part series on the state. On the shopping list this time are all things springlike. A couple of weeks in Anchorage filming black bears emerging (if they are in the tree we think they are in) dippers, […] Read more »
No Snow

No Snow

March 5th, 2014

You would hope that 2 weeks in Alaska in February would yield some snow but, much like the UK’s screwed up weather this winter, Alaska has had a fraction of its usual snowfall. We managed to tick off most of the sequences on the list, but it felt a little unsatisfactory and rather fragmented – […] Read more »
Return from Norway

Return from Norway

February 3rd, 2014

Well that was a lot of fun. Two weeks bobbing around on the Arctic Ocean filming Orcas, Humpbacks, Fin Whales and whatever else rolled by for the BBC’s Atlantic series. I’m very aware of the grim state of many of the world’s marine ecosystems, and I have absolutely nothing to compare my experience to (I […] Read more »

‘Wild Brazil’ broadcast …

January 8th, 2014

I’m about to head off to the west coast of Ireland for a week to work with my great friends, and ace film-makers, Ken & Katrina O’Sullivan, but while I’m away Wild Brazil starts on BBC2. I filmed the jaguars, giant otters, and some other stuff. A great team, fantastic country and magical wildlife.   […] Read more »
And finally...

And finally…

December 23rd, 2013

Home at last from my last shoot of 2013. It’s been a fantastic year of filming – everything from Chimpanzees in Senegal to Hermit Crabs in Belize, Lions in the Masai Mara to wolves in Alaska. Lots of great experiences, wonderful wildlife, great places and people, very good to be home now though. This last […] Read more »
Unfinished business

Unfinished business

November 16th, 2013

Back off to Alaska for my last shoot of the year. I’m initially going to one of my favourite locations; the Chilkat River, where, rather bizarrely, I’ve been for the the last three winters. It’s a stunning location – there will be between 1,000 and 2,000 bald eagles there right now, all gathered along a […] Read more »
