BBC Summer of Wildlife & Me

The Summer of Wildlife in a event run by the BBC over the summer of 2013 to help people engage with  wildlife both locally and nationwide. I've been lucky enough to be involved with quite a few TV & Publicity events with them so heres a run down of what i've done and will be doing.


 I filmed as a camera assistant on Springwatch this year which kicked of the summer of wildlife, although my part was small i was very pleased to be able to show of my camera work on a series such as Springwatch and especially freshwater fish a very underrated subject for british televison.

East Midlands Today

As well as the nationwide programmes SOW has been doing more local stories so when East Midlands Today asked me to do a piece with me i thought it would be a great chance to show of Nottinghams diverse wildlife.

Urban Jungle

a TV series covering all regions of England focusing on the urban wildlife of our cities and showing that they are not so devoid of wildlife as we might think. My role was filming some underwater footage and also appearing infront of camera in a photography challenge.
