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

Adrian is a producer, director and cameraman who has travelled extensively making wildlife programmes for numerous TV channels including the BBC, ITV, Animal Planet and National Geographic. He has also produced work for various global wildlife charities and his photographic images are used across print and online media, some of which populate this site.

Adrian has been fascinated by wildlife for as long as he can remember. A passionate naturalist, he has acquired an in-depth knowledge of the natural world and has authored many of his own films, often to critical acclaim by the press and audiences alike. An informed observer and engaging communicator, Adrian has also presented and narrated wildlife TV programmes.

His self-authored film Woolly Jumpers: Made in Peru, which he also presented, won the ‘Best Newcomer’ award at the prestigious International Wildlife Film Festival (IWFF) in 2007.

Adrian has worked on other award nominated productions.

He has spent weeks raising butterflies to film their life cycle, leapt into the unknown covered in biting driver ants, swum with seals and dressed up as a giant panda to blend in! Adrian has also been pooped on from above by disgruntled monkeys, deliberately run over filming wildlife exploitation, charged by elephants, slept with a deadly puff adder, and shower-danced with scorpions. He has been confronted in the middle of the night by an armed hunter, exposed illegal bush meat trade in South America and emptied venomous spiders from his boots. Closer to home Adrian likes to celebrate British wildlife on our screens.

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