We were lucky enough to have a few close encounters whilst filming in the Arctic for the series 'The Hunt'. This was a very healthy looking male who came to investigate us.

The inquisitive bear gets ever closer. Later during the expedition I was able to film another bear performing an amazing act of daring, climbing 300m up on a rock face to feed on Guillemot eggs and chicks. An amazing example of how these animals have to adapt to an ever changing environment.

This incredible ice cliff stretches for some 30 miles with spectacular waterfalls cascading off the top at regular intervals.

The scenery around Svalbard is quite breathtaking but it's frightening to realise how fast these glaciers are retreating.

My view of the cliffs where the bears dare to climb. The Hunt was one of the first productions to use the F55 in anger.

Don't be fooled by the cute face! We got to know this cub quite well during the month we spent filming on Lake Karluk.

Frigate birds will often give away the position of a bait ball, and if you're lucky, sailfish.

Shooting a sequence about a cute little creature called a Kinkajou for 'North America'. This involved spending long nights high up on a purpose built tower in the Panamanian rainforest.

I'm not usually one for selfies, probably a good thing judging by this.....
