Hi, I'm Sam.
I'm a wildlife camera operator and CAA approved commercial drone pilot, based in Northern England & Scotland.
My recent work includes long lens & macro camera operating on BBC Springwatch, BBC The One Show, Channel 5 - North Atlantic. Check out my recent credits/CV here.
I have experience using a variety of broadcast equipment including Arri Amira, Phantom Flex, FS7, RED & Canon CN20 alongside lightweight kit such as the Panasonic GH5, Sony A7s.
I'm a resilient and self-motivated individual that thrives in tough environments, having captured material in locations such as Iceland, Southern Europe, Scottish Winter, Scandinavia & Patagonia.
Fueled by the innate beauty of the natural world I have always strived to capture unique species and ecosystems through the medium of film. Motivated by the need to protect these iconic creatures and spaces I hope my films go some way to raising awareness of our need to conserve them.
As a recent graduate from Durham university (Geography BSc (Hons)) my physical understanding of the landscape intertwines with a deep passion for ecology and the creatures found within these photogenic places.
