I'm a 25 year old wildlife cameraman/assistant based on the West Coast of Scotland. My goal is to find and film engaging, exciting and educational wildlife stories to help promote the protection of our beautiful natural world. I'm a huge advocate for re-wilding within the UK and protecting wildlife worldwide and strive to help conservation efforts through my films.
I found my way into filming and photography through work as a research assistant on expeditions to the deep Amazon rainforest as well as working on several expeditions in Sub-Saharan Africa. Here I found my love for documenting the natural world. I've worked on productions for BBC, Channel 5, Apple & Netflix and am used to producing high quality footage for important wildlife stories.
