My name is Phil, I'm a wildlife and environmental film maker originally from the Norfolk coast.
I've spent the last 9 years working on wildlife documentaries across the world, starting my career at the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol, then moving to London to work at several independent production companies.
My interest and love of wildlife films first occurred after seeing a film on VHS as a child. It was called The Year of the Wildebeest, a fantastic film about their annual migration, made by film-making legend Alan Root. Ever since then I have been hooked by the natural world and everything that goes along with it. Having gained a BSc in Zoology from Durham University and an MSc in Conservation from Oxford University, I headed into the world of natural history filmmaking. Over the years I've been very lucky, seen some great countries and even got to spend time with one of my childhood hero's David Attenborough.
This website has a collection of photos taken along the way (of the ones which I have managed to sort out). I've spent a lot of my time filming in Asia and Africa, however nothing beats the Norfolk coast, which has some great wildlife, people and the best sunsets in the world.
