Nick loves wildlife, highlighted by a BSc in Zoology from London, and an MSc in African mammals from the highly-respected Mammal Research Institute in South Africa. His knowledge of animals, particularly in Africa, is excellent. This is due to his thousands of active hours spent tracking, following, studying and filming animals. He is experienced and skilled in reading animal behaviour, which is advantageous for filming behavioural sequences; as well as respecting their boundaries and needs. Nick is an experienced diver (PADI Advanced Open Water SCUBA Diving Certification), and has filmed several underwater projects.
