about

“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.”

Adrian Cale … passionate wildlife filmmaker & naturalist

As a highly experienced producer, director and cameraman, Adrian has travelled to far flung corners of the globe filming natural history programmes for the likes of ITV, Animal Planet, Channel 5 and the BBC. He has also produced work for various global wildlife charities.

Adrian has an in-depth knowledge of the natural world and has authored many of his own films, 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 the camera.

One such authored film Woolly Jumpers: Made in Peru won him the ‘Best Newcomer’ award at the prestigious International Wildlife Film Festival (IWFF) in 2007.

He has also worked on other award nominated productions.

Adrian has since been pooped on by woolly monkeys in Peru, deliberately run over by a motorbike filming undercover wildlife exploitation in Thailand, charged by elephants, slept with a puff adder in Africa and showered with a scorpion. He has also been confronted in the middle of the night by an armed hunter, exposed illegal bush meat in South America and emptied venomous spiders from his boots. Closer to home Adrian likes to celebrate British wildlife on our screens and is also a strong narrator.

Adrian has contributed work to various wildlife and environmental charities including International Animal RescueApe Alliance and the Jane Goodall Institute. He is an ambassador for the Young People’s Trust for the Environment and a Fellow at the Zoological Society of London
