Barrie Britton

I have been a wildlife cinematographer for over 30 years, specialising in long lens filming of animal behaviour. I love filming birds and have particular expertise in hide work and filming birds in flight. I initially trained at the BBC Natural History Unit on a camera bursary and have since worked on many of the BBC’s award-winning wildlife series. These include The Trials of Life, Wildlife on One, Life and The Life of Birds, as well as Planet Earth series I, II and III. Memorable sequences include golden eagles predating demoiselle cranes in the Himalayas for Planet Earth, a great grey owl flying through falling snow for Frozen Planet, the swifts of Iguazu Falls for Seven Worlds, One Planet and golden eagles fighting in snow for Planet Earth II and Hostile Planet. I have contributed to series which have won or been nominated for Emmys and BAFTAs for Cinematography.
