Adrian is a wildlife filmmaker, TV presenter and voiceover artist with an in-depth knowledge of natural history and all aspects of wildlife filmmaking.
“My aim is to share the brilliance and beauty of nature. It staggers and inspires me in equal measure. By documenting it, I hope it does the same for others.”
His style is warm and conversational, backed up by years of working with animals around the world both in front of and behind the camera. He’s as comfortable handling scripted documentaries as he is delivering unscripted and off the cuff observations. Adrian is a curious wildlife filmmaker with a vast knowledge of wildlife. It is a mix of these skills that help him sprinkle his passion on camera.
Adrian has authored and shot many of his own films for broadcast, turning the camera on himself and presenting his experiences along the way. An informed observer and very much in the moment, his personally engaged films share wildlife stories as they unfold in front of him.
