Producer | Director | Cameraman
An accomplished natural history filmmaker and artistic cameraman with an eye for a shot, Adrian has a wealth of experience leading projects from a simple idea right through the edit. He likes nothing better than being in a far away corner of the world juggling a tripod with uncooperative animals. Back home he writes scripts and edit produces footage into compelling final films and series for broadcast.
He has spent extended time filming in the USA, South America, Africa, Indonesia, China and other distant places, crafting the story and bringing projects to life.
Adrian is multi-skilled, creative and resourceful, finding interesting and original ways to capture and tell great stories.
