Return from the chimps …

April 9th, 2013

Just back from an fantastic month in Senegal filming for the BBC Natural History Unit’s Survival series. Our plan was to film chimps digging for water – an amazing behaviour, and one that has never been filmed before. On arrival it was pretty clear why it hasn’t been filmed before – in fact nobody has […] Read more »

Senegal bound …

March 8th, 2013

After a very protracted period of security checks it’s been decided that we can, at last, head off to Senegal. I’m going to be filming chimps for the BBC Survival series. This is a really interesting group of chimpanzees which live in a semi-desert environment, rather like the patchwork of scrub and grassland in which […] Read more »

Back for Christmas …

December 19th, 2012

Home after a great month in Alaska, it was snot-freezingly cold (even by Alaskan standards) for much of the time, which meant for some beautiful images. Lots of eagles, ravens, coyote and even lynx. I’ll keep this brief as I’ve got a huge pile of prezzies to wrap, here are some photo’s, it’s lovely to […] Read more »

I’m off to Alaska for the 4th and final time of the year. This time for the BBC Natural History Unit’s Survival series. We’re going to Haines to film Bald eagles – it’s a great location and the perfect place to round off a very busy year of filming. While I’m away Animal Planet USA […] Read more »
Gibson ES175 restoration finished

Gibson ES175 restoration finished

November 12th, 2012

I found this rather forlorn looking Gibson ES175 on E-bay a few months ago. I’ve been really interested in this particular model of guitar for years. It’s the original working professionals jazz guitar, and, as a model, it’s been in production since 1949 – the longest production run of any electric guitar. Originally costing $175.00 […] Read more »
Back from Brazil

Back from Brazil

November 5th, 2012

Finally back after a fantastic three weeks in Brazil filming for the BBC. We were based in the Pantanal, a seasonally flooded wetland and one of the richest habitats I’ve ever worked in. Our brief was to try and film as much Jaguar behaviour as possible. 10 years ago even seeing a jaguar would have been […] Read more »

October 4th, 2012

Only home for a week, but lovely to spend some time with Julie and the boys. We had Max’s slightly delayed birthday party in the Leafield community wood – great fun on a beautiful October afternoon. Capture the flag, a treasure hunt and lots of cake and mud. I’m off to Brazil later today, filming […] Read more »
