I’m happiest chasing buzzing bees, chorusing frogs, brilliant hummingbirds, rowdy monkeys and the occasional trout. Since boyhood the natural world has captivated me with its vibrant colors and intricate relationships. I want to share with you what I see. My aim is to show the hidden; the countless fantastic stories happening right in front of us and the creatures behind them. To reveal them as individuals, recording the details of their lives. As a curious biologist I’m fascinated by anything that moves from ants to elephants. I capture nature using the latest gadgets and a high tolerance for mud and mosquitoes.

I am a filmmaker, photojournalist and educator, crafting award-winning stories with a long track record of producing on time and on budget. When not shooting you’ll find me teaching and speaking publicly; training sessions for broadcasters, university lecturing, group and individual workshops as well as leading photo/nature tours.

I seek to make a difference, however small, in conserving the natural world. I still have my childhood passion for exploring. And I still love frogs. And bees and bats. And point to point jumping in the countryside.

Good luck with your own projects and thanks for the visit.
