Most recently I have shot a variety of films for the BBC's 'Watches' series, primarily focused on long lens behavioural sequences. Further afield I have spent a great deal of time exploring Scotland's Outer Hebrides, where I have worked as a camera operator/assistant and editor on a variety of documentaries for BBC Scotland and BBC Alba. 

I have also produced still and video material for numerous clients including BBC Earth, BBC Wildlife Magazine, RSPB, NatureScot, ZSL, The Wildlife Trusts, Bird Life International, Scotland’s Farm Advisory Service and the Society for the Protection of Turtles.

Having spent my life surrounded by the countryside, my passion for the natural world led me to study Zoology at the University of Exeter’s Cornwall Campus. Here I gained extensive experience working with wildlife in the field in a number of remote locations across the world.

Following this I undertook an MA in Wildlife Documentary Production, where I took the opportunity to bring awareness to the rare and threatened machair habitat of the Outer Hebrides.  My multi award-winning documentary "Life on the Machair", explores the lives of a number of species that depend on this rapidly declining habitat, including corncrake, arctic tern and the great yellow bumblebee.

Aside from my filming work, I have worked as a research assistant for the Society for the Protection of Turtles in Cyprus, collecting data and aiding conservation efforts for the endangered Green and Loggerhead turtles.

 

I have also carried out field research in Scotland and South Africa, and for my undergraduate dissertation, conducted a year-long research project into the effect of social isolation on Capuchin monkeys in the pet trade.
