A big revival of the video blog series I decided to set up to give some insight into what a journey to becoming a wildlife filmmaker may look like. It’s been a while, almost three years since I released my first two videos but at least I can share some decent, time-revised advise from the perspective of my most recent successes – becoming a researcher on a BBC and National Geographic production and releasing two environmental documentaries of my own. If natural history television sounds like something you may want to do give this video a watch and share some thoughts.
Latest film I have edited for the Animal Watch channel of the Green World TV in which Anneka flies to Gansbaii in South Africa on a mission to find The Great White Shark, alongside the Big Marine 5: Penguins, Seals, Whales and Dolphins. She ends up in the notorious Shark Alley – will she find what she is looking for?
Last weekend we went with a group of friends to Skomer Island and Stack Rocks on the coast of Pembrokeshire and it was certainly one of the most stunning nature and wildlife experiences. Take a look at some of the shots I managed to capture there portraying puffins, guillemots, razorbills, oystercatchers, bluebirds, rabbits, dolphins and seals as well as the astonishing cliffs.
We’re very thrilled to share our most ambitious yet collaboration with Lady Nade we worked on in March, the official music video for Safe Place, juest ahead of the album’s official release.

It is absolutely exhilarating feeling to be able to share the result of my work for the BBC Studios production for the first time as a researcher. I am especially proud to have set up for the national television a film with a strong climate change message.
Take a look at those four episodes for which I had a chance to set up films like Rural Churches, Cherry Blossom Climate Change, Pots, Rabbits at Risk, Fat Club for Pets, British Daffodils and Crop Tower.
HAPPY EARTH DAY ! 💚
Here, a painting of Earth I included on the back of my sign for the Extinction Rebellion protest. Unfortunately, only Europe and Arctic made it to my planet. 😂
Make ‘Climate Change – The Facts’ your watch for today if you haven’t seen it yet. Very happy that more and more conservation messages are making it to the national television. 📺
I’m terms of green tips for today:
I’m about to pay the bills to Pure Planet which I’ve been using as a supplier for the last year for gas & electric – 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon offset gas. 🌍
Proud of my mate Aishah Masood who carried a reusable mug during our camping trip to grab takeaway coffees in.
Advised my other mate on using menstrual cup instead of tampons as a more environmentally friendly but also healthier option for the body compared to tampons.
Bracing myself for that trashtag on a walk next weekend and when I do it, I will make sure I will bring biodegradable bin bags with me, which I get at Better Food (alongside with my top ups of washing up and laundry liquids and unwrapped soap bars). I will probably take my doggy with me for that walk and of course that means our biodegradable, lavender scented poo bags. 💩
Finally, my housemate has just put the order through with Riverford for our local fruit and veg boxes that don’t come wrapped in so much plastic – although there is room for improvement with that occasional plastic bag for green beans or kale.
Very glad we can finally share the fruits of our second collaboration with Lady Nade on the Looking for Love music video. She is traversing multiple unique spots in Bristol looking for love – will she find it?
This time on the other side of the camera I’ve been speaking about the International Launch of the Extinction Rebellion protest in London from Waterloo Bridge on Monday 15th of April on What’s Hot London.
