Andrew Wegst

Lighting Cameraman / Producer

PALO ALTO, USA

I have making broadcast films about animals for 30 years. I've been fortunate to create stories about everything from hummingbirds, wolves, rhinos to bees. In 2017, I shared the News & Documentary Emmy Award for Outstanding Cinematography in a Documentary for an episode of PBS's Nature series entitled "Super Hummingbirds." For the last 5-6 years, I've been creating wildlife conservation films for the NGO WildAid. These films have been produced for Asian audiences to reduce the demand for illegally trafficked wildlife parts. I am currently in the early stages of forming a small non-profit dedicated to making conservation films for local audiences in Africa.
