Film

I am a wildlife and conservation camera operator, specialising in filming within tropical environments, and available to work on a freelance basis for both long and short term projects.

You can watch my short documentary about rarely seen spider monkey feeding behaviour in the clay licks of the Peruvian Amazon, which I filmed, researched, wrote, edited and graded. I also wrote an article for the world’s leading conservation news site, Mongabay.org about the behaviour, which you can read here

I am also one of the Scientific Exploration Society’s 2018 explorers as the recipient of the SES Neville Shulman Film Award 2018. With this funding, our team are making a 25-minute documentary about a road being illegally built through the Madre de Dios rainforest region of Peru and the potential impacts this may have on indigenous communities and biodiversity in the area.

Workshops & Training

I have co-created and delivered two three-month multimedia journalism courses from the Crees Foundation’s remote research base in the Peruvian Amazon. This includes teaching weekly workshops on a range of topics, such as photography, filming, marketing, writing and post production, as well as mentoring participants, editing assignments and helping curate portfolios. Over and above this, running these courses requires an in-depth knowledge of how to effectively work in a tropical environment, plan for the unpredictable conditions, and care for camera equipment.

I am available for workshops and training courses on any of the above subjects. Contact:
