WPS Centenary Lecture 18 November 2023

Speaker:  Doug Allan From Blue Planet & Planet Earth

The Winchester Photographic Society celebrates its 100th Birthday with multiple time Emmy and BAFTA winning photographer and cameraman Doug Allan.  We welcome you to join us for this very special evening.

Described by Sir David Attenborough as ‘Wildlife cameramen don’t come much more special than Doug’.

He was one of the principal cameramen on the award-winning BBC series ‘The Blue Planet’ and ‘Planet Earth’. Doug Allan is a freelance wildlife and documentary cameraman, who films both topside and underwater.  He’s been giving talks for many years on wildlife, diving, his experiences while film making and the craft of nature photography.

About Doug’s Talk

Doug Allan looks back over his successes and setbacks during 35 years of natural history film making.

Part retrospective, the show is also Doug’s perspective on climate change and its impacts on the world’s wild places.

What change of emphasis and direction should we now be incorporating in wildlife films?
