Back in 2011, after a few weeks of working in the Cambodian jungle, I decided that I had to buy a video camera. I invested in a Canon Legria HFS21 and am still using it today. At first I just used it film wildlife and the places I was fortunate enough to travel to. As I never had a laptop powerful enough to edit and create films, the footage just collected on hard drives. In my final year as an undergraduate, a group of us decided to make a film on the return of the beaver to England. I wasn't supposed to be the editor, but two days before deadline I had to teach myself to edit and sleeplessly smashed out a 10 minute film. It won the student vote for best project on that module and gave me the thirst to make more films. Since then I've made promotional videos for the University of Brighton, Mankwe Wildlife Reserve and Axe & Paddle Bushcraft. On my YouTube channel I also post videos of cool wildlife encounters I've been priviledged to be witness of.
A video I made on the process of dehorning while researching its effects on rhino behaviour. Dehorning is an emergency conservation tactic used by many private reserves in South Arica in an attempt to reduce the risk from poaching. Although controversial to some, a dehorned rhino is better than a dead rhino.
