About Rob…

With 20 years experience in factual television and documentary production Rob has worked for every major UK broadcaster and National Geographic and Discovery Networks in the US and Asia. Rob specialises in filming in remote, difficult locations where keeping kit going, crew healthy and morale high is essential.

His experience ranges from being part of a 70-strong production for primetime entertainment series to managing small, entirely self-sufficient teams in some of the most remote and hostile corners of the World. He’s worked without power, accommodation or drinking water on expeditions in the jungles of Guyana, outback Australia, British Columbia and the Kamchatka peninsula in Eastern Russia. He has lived and worked in SE Asia, spent months shooting in the jungles of South America and braved the cold and altitude of Antarctica and Kilimanjaro.

A background in whitewater kayaking and the outdoors plays a large part in this success. Rob loves filming in and around water and has excellent water safety, Media Diving HSE, Hostile Environment and trauma first-aid training.

His camera is never far from the action whether running alongside extreme endurance athletes, hanging from cliffs and helicopters or swimming alongside predatory fish as big as himself. Personable and relaxed Rob is always listening out for great content and building strong relationships with talent and contributors, as well keeping an eye out for the next great shot.

Recent credits include – Mission Survive with Bear Grylls (ITV), World’s Toughest Army (BBC), Monster Fish (Nat Geo Wild US), Britain’s Biggest Adventures with Bear Grylls (ITV) and Xtreme Endurance: Race to the Pole (Ch 5).  Rob has also had stills published in National Geographic Magazine.
