Doug is a BBC filmmaker and author who gave a number of talks last year along the East Coast including Miami University, Zoo Miami and Baltimore Aquarium.
Doug has been captivating audiences across the UK with his sell-out tour, sharing his extraordinary filming challenges and successes. His legendary expertise in Polar Regions and other extreme environments make him a charismatic guest speaker at educational institutions, corporate events and on expedition cruise trips. His book, Freeze Frame – a Wildlife Cameraman’s Adventures on Ice, is packed with stunning polar photography and fascinating stories that include tracking polar bears, eye to eye with killer whales and up close with leopard seals. The upper slopes of Everest to the deserts of Namibia have become his natural habitats.
Doug spent seven years in Antarctica as a research diver, marine biologist, base commander and photographer for the British Antarctic Survey, receiving both the Polar Medal and the Fuchs Medal for his science and support work. In 1984 he changed direction to full time filming.
In his 30 year filming career, he’s been involved with more than 65 films, freelancing for the BBC, Discovery, National Geographic and others. He was principal cameraman on many prestigious award-winning series including Operation Iceberg, Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Human Planet, Life, Planet Earth, The Blue Planet and Life in the Freezer. Doug’s dive experience covers more than 5000 hours underwater with over 650 dives under ice.
Doug’s photographic awards include seven Emmys, four BAFTAs and five Wildscreen Pandas. He has twice won the underwater category in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. He has three Honorary Doctorates in recognition of his camerawork and was recently made an Honorary Fellow of the prestigious Royal Photographic Society and Honorary Fellow of the Royal Scottish Geographic Society. Doug is also a speaker on the environmental issues that spike climate change.
