Doug Allan is a documentary film maker and photographer, best known for his work in cold, remote places on BBC wildlife and expedition series.

Illustrated with his own photographs and clips from his best-known series, and with a wealth of behind the scenes stories – Doug’s aim with this presentation is to amaze, inspire and challenge.

How do you get up close and personal with polar bears without being eaten? Or make sure you don't lose that important dive hole filming seals under the ice? Can you really talk to whales? What’s the key to camerawork at 7500m on Everest? How much do wildlife programme makers rely on scientists, and do our programmes ever contribute to scientific discoveries? Doug has witnessed first hand how climate change is affecting both poles — is there still time to turn the tide? Or are the big glossy wildlife docs just adding to the problem?

“For me, wildlife cameramen don’t come much more special than Doug. There’s just no one else who knows these frozen worlds as he does”
Sir David Attenborough

Background
Doug spent seven years in Antarctica as a research diver, scientist and photographer for the British Antarctic Survey, before changing direction to full time freelance filming in 1983.

Since then he has become one of the world’s best known and respected cameramen. He specialises in natural history, expeditions and science documentaries in some of the wildest and most remote places on our planet, particularly the polar zones. In his 35 year filming career, he's worked for BBC, Discovery, National Geographic and many others, filming for series like The Blue Planet, Planet Earth, Frozen Planet, Ocean Giants, Operation Iceberg, Wild Cameramen at Work and Forces of Nature.

His photographic awards include eight Emmy’s and five BAFTA’s. He has four Honorary Doctorates in recognition of his camerawork, as well as two Polar Medals. He’s an Honorary Fellow of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society and of the Royal Photographic Society.
