Gail has filmed around the world, in fact fortunate enough to say in all seven continents. From the ever awe inspiring tabular icebergs that float in Antarctic waters to the dense mountains of Rwanda amongst their resident precious mountain Gorilla. Gail is a qualified HSE part 4 underwater diver, also highly experienced in shooting topside aboard sea fairing vessels ranging from the high tech Alucia ship in the open ocean to small catamaran’s bobbing upon the Severn Bore.

Recent work includes sequences for the BBC NHU, Netflix, Discovery and National Geographic.
