THE TEAM

Wildlife photographer and cameraman Luke Massey has been awarded in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition for the past two years, as well as winning the wildlife category of Travel Photographer of the Year and the title of Young Environmental Photographer of the Year in 2016. As a cameraman, Luke was part of Chris Packham’s Green Ribbon Award winning team in 2015. Luke is a passionate naturalist and combined with his eagle eye for spotting wildlife these key ingredients allow for the creation of spectacular videography and photography.

Writer and camerawoman Katie Stacey has had her articles published in the Royal Geographical Society’s ‘Geographical’ magazine, Europe’s most popular wildlife magazine ‘BBC Wildlife’, MAPTIA and Jungles in Paris amongst many others. Katie’s passion for travel allows her to compose engaging and enticing articles, blogs and scripts for the screen. Plus having worked in the travel industry, from running luxury bush camps in the Zambian bush to teaching diving on the tropical island of Roatan, Katie has also developed an understanding of what clients are looking for when it comes to wild travel.  

The duo have filmed together for numerous different projects including for National Geographic channel, Netflix, as well as an upcoming BBC Natural World on Falcons.

 

Nicholas Allan is a BAFTA and Jackson Hole nominated sound editor and recordist based in Bristol. 

He has worked on natural history documentaries for BBC, ITV, National Geographic, Discovery and others and combines his life-long fascination with birds and the natural world with his passion for sound. He works both independently and as part of a small team providing full audio post-production services which is co-ordinated by Andrew Wilson (re-recording mixer for BBC’s Planet Earth, The Natural World and Disney Nature films).

As a field recordist Nic specialises in ambience and spatial sound and is interested in the encroachment of human noise into the environment and how it affects animal communication and our enjoyment of the natural world, as well as the changing sound of nature through the onset of climate change. He looks for ways to push barriers of sound quality and clarity whilst also helping to pioneer the latest microphone techniques associated with spatial sound and emerging fields such as VR and 360º.
