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 and Freethink.
I'm currently working full time as a Logger at Humble Bee Films and in my down time I try keep tabs on a few side jobs to develop my skills further including writing/presenting for the Eco Sapien YouTube channel and editing videos for Freethink's 'Future_Explored' TikTok.
I've had a year of doing various bits for other people/organisations and not much filming of my own so in 2022 I'll be putting most of my time towards creating my own short film covering the rise of Nature Based Tourism across the UK and mainland Europe.
