Testimonial

Charlie Hamilton-Jones

"The shots we got of otters on Springwatch, behaving so naturally and so dramatically, were entirely due to John. His incredible depth of knowledge and experience blew me away and made me realise that pointing the camera in the right direction was the easy bit!"

"It was great working with you again and I shall recommend you to anyone I can. The footage we got for Nature of Britain outclassed even Springwatch and that is entirely due to your hard work ."
