Research | Camera | Presenter | Looking for my first job in TV
I've always had a fascination with the natural world but that fascination didn't necessarily mean it was easy for me to decide what role I eventually wanted to pursue in life until more recently.
As an undergrad Conservation Biology student, I'd messed about filming with GoPros whilst doing a few conservation trips overseas but it wasn't until I chose to do a Masters in Science Communication that I realised how powerful video could be as a tool in engaging other people with stories of the natural world and conservation.
After my MSc course finished and I finally managed to save up some cash, I bought my first DSLR and started shooting wherever and whenever I could. This was quickly followed by a strong realisation that I wanted to pursue a career in wildlife filmmaking.
Career wise, like most people fresh on the Wildlife film scene, I struggled to get a entry level runner position, so much of my time over the past few years has been spent spamming various organisations with emails asking if I could create some content or anything else that supported their work and I've developed my portfolio step by step from there. I've now worked with organisations including Octopus Energy, The Marine Diaries, Earth Minutes, Tom Carroll,
I've recently left my job as a Digital Marketing Executive to put more time into taking my first step into wildlife filmmaking and I'm currently working as a Logger whilst keeping tabs on various freelance gigs (research, animation, Voiceovers).
Over the next year I'll be working on my first proper filming project where I'll be covering the rise of Nature Based Tourism across the UK and mainland Europe, so please make sure to check by for updates via my social feeds.
