Sue Gibson

I’m a Bafta and Emmy nominated wildlife cinematographer. I predominantly film long lens behavioural sequences and have relevant experience shooting on Shotover/GSS, high-speed, handheld gimbals, motion-control timelapse, and camera traps. I also shoot sync and obs doc. I’ve had sequences broadcast on BBC, Apple, Netflix, Nat Geo, Disney, and Sky. Occasionally I can be found in front of the camera (BBC Animal Babies: First Year On Earth and Nat Geo’s Yellowstone Live). I gained an IRATA level 1 qualification in 2022, which enabled me to shimmy up to a 35 metre tree platform to film red howlers in Peru. I’ve filmed from boats, in extreme temperatures, and at altitude. Happiest with a good view, awesome behaviour, and plenty of snacks 😉
