‘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

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 »

Return from the moose

October 21st, 2013

Home at last after what seems like an eternity away  – in all it was 7 weeks away with 6 days at home at the halfway point, just enough time to really screw up my body clock. This was the second shoot for a major BBC series about the wildlife of Alaska, the shopping list […] Read more »
Pika-boo!

Pika-boo!

September 24th, 2013

There is something about working in two different countries on the same trip that makes it feel like you have been away from home longer than you actually have. This last shoot consisted of three weeks in Canada followed by a week in Alaska, and it is very nice to home. Although the joys of […] Read more »

Back from Kenya …

August 8th, 2013

Home again after a great, if rather weird, 5 weeks in the Maasi Mara. I was filming two sequences for BBC1’s upcoming landmark series Survival; a sequence about the zebras crossing the Mara River, and a sequence about lion society. I think we got some really great material, but, as a first experience of the […] Read more »

Safari bound …

July 6th, 2013

Two weeks at home which have gone by in a bit of a blur, but have been lovely. It seems utterly daft to head off again just as the Great British Summer seems to have finally come to life, but at least it’ll be good to know that Julie and the boys will have some […] Read more »
Crabs & Hurricanes

Crabs & Hurricanes

June 25th, 2013

A fantastic couple of weeks in a genuine tropical paradise. The crabs did everything that we were told that they would and more. It’s a really incredible behaviour and possibly unique to hermit crabs and humans. We certainly couldn’t think of another species which forms these ‘vacancy chains’ – individuals queue in order to move […] Read more »

Belize and other things …

June 3rd, 2013

A fantastic, if rather hectic, few weeks at home, and now heading off again just as summer seems to be finally happening. Next stop is Belize, or, to be more precise Carrie Bow Cay, an island the size of a couple of tennis courts 14 miles off the coast – it looks unbelievably idyllic. It’s […] Read more »
