Madagascar - Africa's Galapagos

It’s the 10th of May 1836, Charles Darwin leans on the beaten wooden gunwale of The Beagle. He’s yet to start writing his “Origin of the Species”, but he’s already forming his theories about evolution. Locations like the Galapagos islands had a huge impact on him, but as he looks upon the jungled coastline of Madagascar, he has no idea what he’s missing out on.

Growing up in rural Norfolk, England I was inspired by the wildlife living in the woodland and hedgerows surrounding my home. Combined with watching nature documentaries about animals in Africa and beyond, this set me on a path to wildlife film making. Always keen to explore wild places and gain a window into secret animal worlds, I aim to create beautiful imagery and tell stories in a visually compelling way.
